Thanks for your thoughts Daniel.. Love the reference to biomythic resonance
I WAS EFFORTLESSLY DRAWN INTO THE EMOTIONAL STRATA OF YOUR OFFERING...
CAUGHT BY THE VISUALS... HELD BY THE SOUND OF THE BONES...
MOVED BY THE WHOLE OF IT!
Quite Illustrative! As I engage exceptional children in learning with "sequences of rhythms of movement" to help with balance and coordination, I appreciate how you've integrated Soma-Aesthetics: Constructing Interiority with bones to bring Biology & Cultural expression together. Wonderful!

i am glad you enjoyed it, ....it was an attempt to give visual image and the feeling of the 'bones' of myth and story... Martin Shaw has said he starts with learning and even more important the understanding of the bones of a story.i i am interested in the bones because bones are what hold us up, they are our most basic structure but they also carry our history, our ancestry and without words i had to go deep into the bones of my emotion and bring about a feeling for the myth. i love words but struggle to hold onto names and exact details that many story tellers are able to draw on. but the bones, they are the aspect i carry and so relied on them to express elements of myth.
it was also a real attempt to bring my visual art, my dance and all that i learnt at West country School of Myth together in my own particular form......so i'm glad you enjoyed my offering. i find it interesting to know how others approach learning story for telling especially if they can't 'learn things of by heart', a wonderful skill but if you don't possess that particular one you have to delve into your own ways....the bones... the bones are inside of us! cheers
This was a real highlight of the day at Dartington. Thank you.
