SHiFTiNG TECHNOLOGiA by Movement Graffiti explores the past and future from the perspective of our embodied now. Calling upon the wild of our ever-changing survival consciousness, SHiFTiNG TECHNOLOGiA melds this with precise movement as a technology of the future. This work explores the culture of discarded objects and relates environmental awareness to personal awareness. At the inner-section of dance/movement, visual art and voice this work seeks to evoke creation as communication. ...that we ARE the language of our past and also the story of our future.
"In the very earliest time, when both people and animals lived on earth, a person could become an animal if he wanted to and an animal could become a human being. Sometimes they were people and sometimes animals and there was no difference. All spoke the same language. That was the time when words were like magic. The human mind had mysterious powers. ... Nobody could explain this: That's the way it was." Translated by poet, Edward Field in 'Magic Words: From the Ancient Oral Tradition of the Inuit'
Post Performance: ...As a visual documentation evolution and donor support gift, miniature sketches based in the dance work were created by ShawnT. The sketches were then sent to the generous donors/supporters of SHiFTiNG TECHNOLOGiA. They can be found here: SHiFTiNG SKETCHES
