Ask a participant to make a simple motion. Invite everyone to mimic the motion to the best of their ability and call out associations that come to mind. An association will spark new, related movements and subsequent associations. The activity is intended to move quickly. Thus, participants should be encouraged to shout anything that comes to mind.
“Memory becomes agent, player, and director. Memory choreographs the recognition of movement” (Brandstetter, 2000: 110).
How are movements connected? How does memory re-articulate movement sequencing? How can choreographies transcend time and place?
Association Popcorn looks to build collective movement sequences that explore these questions.
