Amelia Charter
Performance, 2018

"Performances are designed with interconnected scores and constraints for embodiment, action and improvisation. The score shapes the improvisation through a sequence actions, combinations, and points of contact. For me, improvisation is a practice of observing, listening and of participation. It is a place to experience acknowledgement, unknowing, the effort to understand, and the willingness to live. The necessary limitations fuse together concentration and openness. Embodiment constraints are informed by somatic or physical study. I use body mind practices and anatomical research to learn more about different systems and parts of the human body. Through this complexity I question the tools in which we use to navigate between the inner and the outer."
