In preparation to the live performance I wrote a little text:

Respiration can be the deepest photograph of my emotions.

While I’m photographing my breathing, I invoke the images woven around the inner wall of my body.

 While I’m photographing my breathing, I’m syncing my internal with my external image.

 While I’m photographing my breathing, I’m closing my eyes and picturing behind the surface.

While I’m photographing my breathing, I’m tensing my body and releasing my vision.

While I’m photographing my breathing, I’m giving light to the darker side of my memory.

While I’m photographing my breathing, we can all listen to the voices of all the images stored inside my cavities.

 While I’m photographing my breathing, I have the tendency to become mechanical but the creative impulse will help me to break the program.

While I’m photographing my breathing, my mind becomes a bit dizzy and the focus becomes my pure uncertainty.

 While I’m photographing my breathing, I stop anticipating my stimulus and the entire activity become more unpredictable.

My photographic capacity is built-in to the anatomy of my body.

3 days workshop at the Centro de las Artes de Hidalgo (Mexico)

During this workshop we will study and practice the creation of a “poetic images” through individual and collective actions.

We will discuss the “pose” as a concept of transformation from action to image, from movement to stillness.

I will introduce the “poetic image’ as a gesture of expression of our imagination… a connection with and internal visualisation…

Upcoming project at the Ceprodac (Centre of Production of Contemporary Dance) in Mexico City

I’m looking forward to work with professional movers and introduce them to the PhotoPerformer philosophy.

Is The PhotoPerformer going to move or the professional Dancers going to reach stillness?

The experiment will last 10 days.
