Beneath the Surface (Glamour Girl) is a solo inspired by the fact there is no unchanging self. To investigate this further and bring the concept to life in the performance the process was about uncovering the conscious moving body in how movement creates an image world or how the external world invokes movement choices. It was a discovery on how certain movements inspire thoughts or emotions and then as the performer how to translate and project that internal dialogue to the audience. Even though the movement is choreographed the beauty in performing is that constant metamorphous of each moment in the performance in that a movement might trigger a different thought/feeling or visceral response and/or how a external sensations (i.e. the room, the audience, the smell… all these stimuli) change the dynamic of how the movement is executed in that moment.
