Is the body silent?

Is the body silent?

Harry Brooks, 21

There is a language of movement and gesture which is capable of communicating the emotional state of person in a profound and deeply moving way. Improvised choreography explores an ability to create an authentic way of moving. By isolating specific movements and found gestures or unconscious movements and exploring them through film, the viewer is able to engage in a close-up, personal interaction with the performer. This observation of unconscious body movements combined with shifts in mood and sensation explored in the film, slowly expose deeper more visceral feelings behind the performance.
