Sensing Sentience




This project was done as a part of the master program at KhiO in 2015 in collaboration with my fellow students Roza Moshtaghi and Marie Ronold Mathisen.

We made a performance consisting of three chapters. Each chapter initiated and led by one and the other, and processed together.

Sentience is the capacity to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively. In the chapter I led we explored the performer´s maximum concentration and presence in the execution of a movement, and how it is for a spectator to experience another humans sentience.

The movement material is improvised within a narrow and strict framework. Keywords for the movement material was the relationship and dialogue between a line and a circle.
