quantity of ideas

I’ve been working a lot with director/choreographer Bagryana Popov.

In the improvisations that form the central part of our rehearsal work on the floor’, it has occurred to me that the working environment that Bagryana creates invites the generation of many many ideas (or offers”) within the work. I am given license to trial, to include the obvious with the uncertain, the naff’ with the more sophisticated. It’s more complex than anything goes” — certainly we are still being critical — but at the same time the emphasis is on placing as many ideas into the working environment as we can. To keep asking (both in the body, and conceptually) what the possibilities are.

In this way we are able to keep our thinking expansive, and in doing this we create an invaluable context (and broad framework) for making decisions further down the track.
