every one everyone

Performance by Shannon Cooney
In the frame of Open Spaces #3-2015

“every one everyone” is a performance in proximity. This performance seeks to amplify inherent person-to-person sensorial connectivity via a dance attuned with each body’s fluid dynamic rhythm*. A sound and light en- vironment provides the setting. Audience members are invited to move freely in the space.Performers are given a movement with the guidance of the choreographer in the form of a sway in sync with their fluid dynamic rhythm. After a time, within a room tuned to the many rhythms of the performers, audience members are welcome to join the choreographer and performers, one-by-one, and sway for as long as they feel compelled.

*The Craniosacral rhythm is the phasic filling and emptying of cerebrospinal fluid.
