Decoding Flow | Painting Choreography
During the residency, I addressed the creative process in connection with the so-called mental state of "flow". Through a theoretical research that linked studies on the artistic level, psychology, anthropology, culture and ritual studies, I sought to get closer and better understand them.
Through letting those ideas and theoretical knowledge feed into the practical research, a deeper understanding makes the expansion of creative tools possible.
Building on this, I wanted to examine how one could illuminate flow as a medium and central aspect in the creative process and at the same time visibly capture it as an end "result". Drawing on visual arts, I asked myself:
which possibilities are there in terms of materials, colors and/or painting techniques to combine with dance and therefore depicit the flow in dance/choreography by the dancer itself during the dance in an artistic way?
