Joannie's 20 minute presentation for AEROPONIC ACTS  - growing roots in air, DAI's 3 day graduation lectures marathon, May 2019 was entitled

There’s lots of time like now

Q: What about the unresolved? 

There's lots of time like now ponders unresolved tension as departure point for action.

The meditative piece combines sound, video and performance, in atmospheric density. Rising suspense with audiovisual means, tensions of the body are emphasised with stretching and dance moves. Repetition creates innovation, preparation precedes improvisation, language loses its narrative arc and becomes flat, the highpoint loses its form to a plateau that proliferates in all directions. Viewers are invited to roam around, to rest, to observe, to move and dance, to prepare and practice.
