For a while now I've wanted to perform in a group. How would the piece change if there are multiple people to interact with. What would it feel like navigating myself around a space if it was filled with others trying to do the same. I recruited Lucy (who I've worked with previously because of her dance background) and Ed (who I always convince to help me with my work). Once we'd turned off the lights and placed our cones on, we be began. It felt completely surrael to begin with. Usually the process involves using my cone appendages to feel around the space to understand my bearings, but in this case it really did feel as though the space was alive, my cones constantly came in to contact with moving flesh as I tried to navigate, the space moved and shifted around me. Looking back at the films there seems to be far more collisions in the beginning but as we continued to perform we begin to understand each other, without communicating it seems as though we somehow know what areas the other was moving to. I could even tell if I was near to Lucy or Ed as they brushed past me, as they moved their bodies in slightly different ways, all this with out the ability to see or communicate with them.
To merge our movements further, I played sound I'd made prevously, which we then responed to. We now lacked sight, sound and partly touch, loosing even more of our indiviulaity. I found that every now and again our movements became sycronised with out seeing each other!
