Movement Studies: DV8 Physical Theatre

DV8 Physical TheatreRecently, I have been studying movement to inform my work as an artist.

Movement of the body. Movement as a source of escape, movement as therapy, movement as an emotion, movement as healing, movement as a release, and an exit from pain.

I am interested in feet and legs, and how they become the source the movement stems from. So I have been taking pictures of legs recently, in different, awkward positions.

While researching, I found this beautiful video by British group DV8 Physical Theatre. It completely changed my current perspective on dance and movement.

I won’t ruining it by saying too much, the two-minute long video speaks for itself: The Cost Of Living.
