Transformations 2: becoming 'animal'

Three improvisations that evoke contrasting physical states .......

Becoming 'insect'....
Becoming 'reptile'...
Becoming 'bird'...
 
Working with the image of these creatures as an internal stimulus work to embody them.

Build upon the sensations these evoke in your body - the tendencies, tensions, twitches, twists and turns... such that you respond to and dwelling in, becoming 'animal', becoming 'other'.

Use the images of 'becoming animal' not to provide form, but to provide the inspiration.
