Hand Studies (Bridget)

I’ve been spending the past four days taking photos of these mannequin hands, copying Bridget Fiske’s fine gestures from our rehearsal last week. As with the mannequin dance based on Pena Bausch’s choreography, I am ending up with enough photos so create an animation much longer than the work I’m citing. In this process (and the birds and seascape paintings) I attempt to elongate time, stretch and tease it out, dissect it, give it added attention…. I do the same when I am working therapeutically with clients, stretching tissue, opening space for better communication between physiological systems.
