MORPH is the title for this performance project led by Rosalind Masson and Moss Beyond Juckes. A sympoetic social choreography through participation in a set of instructions or ’score’. This compositional structure invites participants to engage in respectful and playful ways through individual embodiment of movement and voice, mimicry and dramaturgical self-editing within a group compositional context. During the MORPH score, participants are encouraged to delve into and communicate with the more than human aspects of themselves in communication with their fellow performers and the audience. The vehicle for this exploration is through body and voice. The parameter of the MORPH score holds the space for deep exploration of the physical and performative aspects of self as a holobiont, a community of microorganisms within one body, amongst other bodies subject to an ever-shifting paradigm of poly species evolution within a collective environment.
Additionally there is a Contemporary class with Moss and Rosalind from 08.01.–14.02.2024 | Mon & Wed 18:15-19:45
Moss and Rosalind lead the open contemporary class in conjunction with the MORPH performance project. The focus is on working with the breath, voice and body and how we can explore a variety of relationships with ourselves, each other, the environment and perhaps the universe. In each class we draw from a range of experimental somatic and vocal methods such as time-based practices, mapping the body, Qi Gong, Extended Vocal Technique, Release Technique, Consent Games, Fitness Cardio, Contact Games, Performance Personas. In addition, we explore the different states of the body as we evolve from cell to amoeba to humanoid.
