Nape

Dance that vulnerable point

Play

Nape is a dance based choreographic proposal to be played by anyone.

Start by putting attention to your spine including scull and pelvis, from the top of the head till the pubic bone and tip of a tail.

In this choreographic proposal we treat the area of the nape as the most vulnerable point of the spine.
This is where the dance starts: at noticing what happens when we treat the nape as the most vulnerable point of the spine.

As we get accustomed to that, the proposal goes one step further to propose that you take any two points of what you treat as an entity and find the most vulnerable point between the two points of the entity and dance what we notice or dance noticing.

For example one can take the physical heart, take two points (areas, spaces) in the heart and find the most vulnerable point (area, space) between these to points (areas, spaces).

Or one can go to take a relationship between the performer and spectator as two points of the entity and look for the most vulnerable point in this relationship.

And of course the imagination is then the limit.
