What this text is aiming at, lies somewhere between and beyond all words.

A group of people are waiting to begin the exercise, which will take place in the next room. They are all standing around, relaxing and gathering themselves within, waiting for the impulse to come. One by one, they get and follow the impulse of walking into the next room, to find a place on the floor, and there for a while they make a stand, and wait in open anticipation. As the last member of the ensemble steps in, she closes the door behind her. The group stand waiting, not looking at her but knowing, that she is now walking across the floor, now stopping, waiting. –>


Humans seem to have an inbuilt awareness, of what inspires them and makes them feel alive – and that they have an urge to strive for that, by inner motivation.

Sense of Liminality? Yes. By this I mean our ability to navigate consciously within – or during – our sense of self-in-flux. Perhaps often mostly experienced as a state of mind rather than as a “sense”, but in order to describe what I aim to here, I choose to refer to it as such. –>


Watching is a physical theatre-exercise for ensembles, spawned by a collaboration between Jerzy Grotowski, Jairo Cuesta and the Irvine Group, in 1985. It aligns with Grotowski ́s effort to provide a detailed key for energy-transformation, which develops untamed acting on stage – to free the body to be radiant, translucent and personal. –->
