The aim of the five day Lab was to train perception and composition awareness through a dialogue between sensorial explorations and their documentation.  I proposed to the group  to explore practices focusing on touch, vision and their relationship and  introduced elements of Lisa Nelson’s Tuning Scores . Participants circulated between dancing, drawing, writing, talking and filming to document their experience from ‘inside’ and ‘outside’.  They communicated their point of view through the documents they produced and  In that way,  shared their knowledge and taught each other’s.
