I went to an improvised dance performance the other night as part of LP'09 Dansa...O No festival in which the dancer was investigating her movement patterns and habits. Dancing and annotating her research and thoughts on a blackboard. It was interesting but the text heaviness of the performance was hard for me (it being in spanish). Afterwards I found a folded paper bird someone had made from a program and outside I threw and flew the bird, making my own movement research, experimenting with direction, speed, orientation and flying upsidedown, which proved the most interesting as spirals were often occurring and interesting soft flight from a spiral into peaceful sliding landing. I thought about Jonathon Livingston seagull.
