Amphibious Trilogies

On Passage #1

In Amphibious Trilogies, passage is used to refer to the range of concepts: a physical narrow point of passing; a journey; a route; a period of time; a process of change; a shift in state.

All of these senses of the term passage are placed in relation to the kinetic. Passage is situated on a range of contexts and activities. Each of these is placed within the wider frame of an extended choreography and a choreographic extension of motion in the world.

While a passage may be a corridor or a narrow strait, whether arouting or a confinement, it’s a space of, for and about movement. There are physical and geographical elements in such passages and the activities we have, explored, designed, developed and enacted with and through them.

Yet, passages may also be about movement of thoughts, of mind in motion. These travel along and through physical and embodied experiences of passages.

But that’s not all. Here as in other aspects of passage, we include the notion of amphibiousness.

We experiment with these varied senses of passage by challenging ourselves to work within changes of place, state, sense and motion.

Our amphibious selves also undergo changes in a dynamics of physical and imaginative movement as we shift – weight, motion, balance and being – between land and sea.
