See Me See… (2015)

Brain-child of Nichele Van Portfleet, See Me See… is the working title of an ongoing challenge and exploration into the work of performed improvised movement. How do we release into an “authentic flow” while under the watchful eyes of viewers? What are the states of being through which we pass and reside while performing? Does the audience inhibit or support a deeper dive inside ourselves? How do we as performers travel to places unknown and find something new when we don’t know what it is we’re looking for? How do we find comfort in the uncomfortable?

See Me See… is an attempt to answer these questions and more, using guided, interactive, and experimental improvisational techniques. Please stay tuned for findings to this research process. See Me See… may be opened for future public participation.
