Another image I have been studying is weight as buoyancy. The study came from many perspectives. Weight as effortless movement. Weight as rising and falling that reverse the placement of gravity on the upside or downside of a wave form. Simple muscle action becomes springing that takes place in an image before a movement.
This study changes every move I make because I have networked the experiences of weight into paired areas of my body and with different qualities of movement. Once the connections are made, they need only be nurtured with daily attention and experienced in a variety of dance situations.
The advantages are access to simple commands that activate any area of movement and personal experience. I can vary the sensation of power or vulnerability that ripples through any self instantly. I can vary the size and weight of the smallest or the largest movement. I can shift from completing a movement to adjusting and experimenting with different parts of the movement.
