A Somatic Conversation

The box contains a series of breath extensors, whistles, and other relational objects to explore collectively. It was created at the Programme in Somatic Education for the Arts at Universidad Javeriana-Bogotá and then used as part of a Performative Workshop at Body IQ-Berlín. This ‘kit’ is a pedagogical tool that aims to create awareness of breathing as an art material, and as a way to relate with others. Listening to your own breathing, extended and amplified by the tools, is a great mechanism to play and explore the expressive and somatic possibilities of breathing. When the kit is used with somebody else, it becomes a powerful tool to create connections; to relate in other ways.
