Abstract

This article positions two artists reflections on their independent research projects through the shared lens of embodied knowledge. This tacit knowledge comes from a place of somatic understanding, learnt through internalised somatic practices and sensorial experiences from performer and audience.
KnowingUnknowing is an improvised movement and music collaboration. Through this investigation the artists look for ways to move beyond deeply embedded movement habits and bridge sensorial awareness as a way of connecting the mind and body with the environment.
Hanging Heavy is an immersive dance performance measuring audience reactions using a neuroscientific approach . Utilising the heightened awareness of visually impaired consultants, the artists are aiming to bridge sensorial awareness and demonstrate that there is a connection between the mind and body.
