SESSIONS: About senses, taste and memories!
Dear Carpet collective! I am very excited to be able to be the session leader of the coming 3 sessions especially since I am new in the group and havn’t met many of you yet. I am very curious!
My initial idea was to make 3 sessions about movement and music in the broader sense, meaning how to translate movement in music and vica versa but since this is a subject that is very broad I decided to choose another subject that I am working on since a few month with a small collective called “Corpus Vivos” featuring three dancers and two musicians in the Mezrab Art Cage.
In this collective we try to use senses and memories that are provided by different kinds of foods and herbs and how this physical and sensorial experience can be brought into improvisation.
I hope you will find this interesting and I would like to ask you the following questions as a sort of preparation:
1- What is your memory of:
– the best thing you have ever tasted
– the worst thing you have ever tasted
– the strangest thing you have ever tasted?
Note that for me taste is also an emotional state so your answers do not just have to be food/drink related. Please be generous in your answers (details and descriptions) since its the small details that can usually trigger the most (whatever that might be 🙂 )
It would be great if some of you could bring little samples of these memories in form of small snacks, tastes etc so that we can use these tastes and memories practically …
Please contact me for comments and questions and I am very much looking forward meeting you this thursday!!!

The theme sounds great, José! I hoped I would be able to come to the 2nd and 3rd session of your cycle, but it transpires that I will not be able to make it (the new life here in house is keeping me tied up 😉 )
Looking forward to hear how it all went, once I am back in the game.
I am gonna post something for the group about defining our ground rules, which is something that came out of last year’s row of sessions. A sort of guideline in our understanding of the work. (still work in progress and to be defined and re-definde together) So it is mainly meant for the group in general, but maybe it also is interesting for you in preparation for your sessions.
Hi, my friend Maria Michailidou told me about your meetings on thursdays, is it possible to join tomorrow?
