Motional

Choreographic Language

… gentle and cruel trans, between earth and sky, angels devouring demons, demons devoted to angels. Motion, transformation of all things, nothing is born, nothing dies, a continuum of transmutations, eternal and impermanent.

Angels in the cells… tonal modulations… transparent and etheric… opaque and solid… golden skins, argent skies… journey of our bones into the memories of our lives… embryonic vibrations… a release in movement and its echo in neutral relocation… 

A tender painting to the sky, a crying song to the earth, a shamanic ritual descending into what never settles and never is. Intwined sensitivities and organic visions, shamanistic practice which captures the manifested from heaven and earth, possessing them in order to sublime harmony, to merge into oneness. 

 Motional is a research in motion which aims to animate, nurture and heal the subtle body. It is a bed of meditative motions embodying natural patterns and addressing the most physical as well as the most etheric sheath of the self.

My actual approach to the self considers movement and body as a sensitive landscape, dived into the realm of our earthily introjected beings. I relate to the motional body by entering the resonances containing and contained in us, by rooting in the ground of breath and by following the growth of spiral dynamics through connectivity, from the depth of the bones to the surface of the skin and beyond.  Motional is a profound movement practice which intensifies physical engagement and explores emotional, spiritual and creative potentials. By guiding motion through the fibres of our tissues we allow our reflective and somatic intelligence to watch movement lead us to present/presence. The balance between active/passive engagement transforms our mindfulness into an encompassing witnessing. This way, we enter motion with resilience so that the point of balance between known and unknown can be met and unfold. Motional exists as an embodied poetry at the crosspoint of ancestral and actual somatic practices. Motional embraces the self in its holistic and cosmic dimensions and attune our vibrancy and potency in resonance with the wholeness. This research is an ongoing process, a pool for remembrance and offspring. I orient the developmental process of Motional towards the manifestation of a healthy and resourcing movement practice. Motional, as a philosophy of embodiment is dedicated to any being interested in the body-knowledge, physical creativity and collective awareness.
