Theme: Eye Lie Research

Research Studio | 10am-1pm | £7 suggested donation

The main aim of EYE LIE is to explore the perception of sound, touch, space, gravity and the relation with other’s bodies without the use of the sight. Participants will be asked to stay with eyes closed or blindfolded for most of the time, but also to observe and to give verbal inputs to others sometimes. Unsighted attendants are welcome and strongly encouraged to participate.

The EYE LIE research is based on exercises that mix visual art learning techniques, architecture and the perceptual learning of contemporary dance and physical theatre. It encourages dancers to create images and drawings in the space with their own body, living imaginary and coloured maps in the air. This way of exploring movement is influenced and inspired by Gaga Technique, Release, Contact Improvisation and the Laban Method.

Sessions are open to any performers: dancers, musicians, actors and anyone interested in presence and awareness in performance.
Sessions can be facilitated by any participant of OPENLAB. If you’d like to facilitate one of these sessions in the future send an email to Antonio de la Fe: antonio.delafeguedes@gmail.com
The sessions function on a pay-what-you-can contribution basis to cover expenses and as an incentive for the facilitator of the session. We recommend a £7 contribution for the 3-hour long sessions (‘Facilitated OL’ sessions).
