Performative research inspired by mindfulness techniques and body scan meditation.
There is a strong need within me to experience the present moment. To be present while I move, while I gaze at you, while I touch you… It is a practice of alertness and none reactiveness. Right now, with one deep inhale and exhale I desire to be alert, still, with no thoughts in my mind… And here it is, another dimension in me that is much deeper than thinking. I am no more a being that is identified with my thoughts. I wish to stop the thought stream, so my whole persona can fall apart. And look, I feel more alive than ever. I am experiencing the liveliness of my inner body and my mind finally stopped producing fictional scenarios.
The event is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia.
