Four words | four rooms

The following task was to create personal stories, personal associations with the four words chosen in the texts. Each room, now, could also have a different sound quality (reference is made to the use of the voice).

During the feedback after this exercise, various issues emerge. How do you draw the lines between a room and the other? How do you recognise and save things? Is an instinctive choice relevant or not?

Itzik says it is not important to have specific categories or to say what belongs where.

Yasmeen points out that it is more about narrowing down, crystalising things. Dialogue is also part of the process, so the ongoing questioning also belongs to it.

The travelling through different rooms had a varying impact for the Choreoroamers.

For Amy, sometimes you can find an association from one room to the next one, but some other times it’s satisfactory to have a sudden change.

During the task about writing something “contradictory”, Marina realised she was having pleasure in doing something she usually hates.

Other choreographers asked themselves whether they were supposed to prepare for the following room or whether they should just go into the room.

A cycle task

Two groups of similar structure had to be formed among the participants (the Choreoroamers and a few colleagues) and the four rooms had to be entered, in turns, but each choreographer would be alone in the very first room. Then they would cycle through the rooms in their own timing.

The choreographers also used their voice, so Yasmeen noted that the overall listening quality was pleasant. Interesting diagonal movements could be seen.

Yasmeen asked “Since the beginning, have you discovered anything you had not thought about regarding the picture?”

Amy: “Today it’s more my voice, it’s going deeper”

Tommaso: “As regards the room exercise, I am distantiating, I feel a certain gap with the object, with the picture – is the exercise mainly about me?”

Irena: “if I think of the exercise about the point of view of the artwork, I feel it started talking with my point of view”.

A new series of tasks is given by Itzik:

– write freely about each room

– go through the material and the structure, save something for yourself to realise where you’re going to

– think and divide your life into four rooms (chronologically, or maybe not).
