Rehearsal with the solo|soul collaborators: Karen Jamieson, Don Kugler, Josh Hite, John Korsrud
Tone of the room – creatively open, relaxed, trusting, and accommodating
how do you balance dance and video so one is not taking the other over?
how can you show the internal dialogue through video projection?
how can you change the space of the theatre and bring the research space with?
does the creation of the soul emerge out of the dialogical, or do you find it by going inside?
what is the connection between the energy body the soul?
what are the distinctions between each dialogical relationship? (with dance collaborators)
The brainstorm comments:
there is a desire to work within the proscenium theatre but to subvert it
in dialogue with Serge: Karen followed instructions, Margaret: the material came from another realm, there was a change that occurred, Josh: an idea came forth, Karen did it on another level
desire to show the process of solo|soul non-magically
the idea that the soul can’t be represented through a solo
Don Kugler, dramaturge:
what’s the relationship to the research?
are you documenting? Summarizing? Just doing a solo?
it’s about the research – the idea of solo, changed
it’s representing an act of remembrance
what is the referencing for? To share history? Why and how is the referencing there?
I listen, and through this am incited to dream up creative applications for the choreography that I am currently working on.
