BLINK mini unison intense wail

Intrigued by the psycho-physical consequences of the blink interruption, at "BLINK mini unison intense wail" Michelle Moura and Clara Saito control the blink reflex, opening and closing their eyes in unison, and intensifying this movement through rhythmical score and gestures tensioning the relationship between choreography and dance, control and surrender. BLINK is a generative dance, in which an action is nurtured and exponentially challenged by their own effects and affects. A dynamic process of “incorporation”: a continuous  and still making a body.
