A practice which investigates breath as the primary actor in all forms of dynamic breath expression in performing bodies.
The Breath Art Project will investigate how breath can be identified and studied as a primary actor in practices of dynamic performance expression, and how embodying conscious breath techniques can strengthen different performance output, which will help design a brand new breath art methodology to contribute to, and complement, already standing curriculum. Until now, the role of breath as a central part of the performative and interpretative act has been largely under analysed, treated more as utilitarian, and lacks definition as an essential form of communication and tool to discover and embody authentic expression. This project, therefore, will analyse and define breath's agency in performing bodies and performative practice, not exclusively from a therapeutic point of view, but from an expressive, performative, and creative perspective. It will do so by analysing what I call “dynamic breath output” (the multiple characteristics which breath produces as forms of expression) through varied regular workshops, and by continuing my own professional work in breath art practice. My goal will be to design a unique methodology which can update performance practice through the medium of breath.
