MA Choreography 22: Myrto Delimichali - Deviations >>> The Crotch and the Mane

Skin, eyes and digestions___-_~Mumbling the discourse between image context and form. Approaching choreography from an autoethnographic perspective, `Deviations >>>  The crotch and the mane`  is a performative project of a two year process were practices, scores, archives and sounds are composed in time and space.

My flesh is hiding. I am dressed under. Skin is the limit where private becomes public, where inner becomes outer, where your gaze finds a land. I receive. I project. I digest. I am trying to understand this encounter of millions of receptions and projections. Can I negotiate? If yes, what is still unspoken?

Departing from the discourse of image context and form, my process is tracing the influence that occurs in our daily interactions and affects our modes of expression. Social image vs self- image. How we process role models and ideal bodies. Sexuality is part of this journey. Along with the sense of femininity in a manner of rethinking around female body and its introspective dimension, weirdness and awkwardness were poles of this embodied trajectory that merges stereotypes and social conventions with inner self impact and reflection on the words shame, shy, shine, she.

Trying to stage the experience of in-between spaces and frames, social gaze and personal intentions transformed into thoughts, feelings, emotions, words, poems, songs, steps, movement, haptic sounds and saturated places of a self that is tracing its moods and positions on public, private and digital sense of self.
