Pasquale Esposito SESSION II Expressive Body 2020-02

The art of the inevitable


Stop doing!

Usually people want to train the body to be expressive, thinking they need to improve their body skills, when actually from a mindfulness point of view, it is about to be aware and so to realise that expression is inevitably happening all the time, like breathing

This is an unconscious process and becoming aware of this is the door to creativity and originality. The action with this orientation becomes “to stay”, becomes investing in loss.

Our behaviour is very often pure affectation! We do in order to get something to show something. Babies don’t function that way.  Whatever they do, there is no intention. They don’t do anything “in order to...”, they just explore the world as themselves.

Expression in these two cases has a different quality. We will explore the difference between auto-expression and expression. We’ll work physically individually and in group and we’ll work on scenes. The possibility for a shift in your awareness starts with your participation!

So, you are invited to bring something from your artistic field or, if you like, we could provide something for you to work on.

Starting this scholar year 2019/20 Pasquale Esposito's teaching has a home base in Germany at actíng and arts. In a series of weekend-encounters, we will shift from the usual paradigma to train your body skills in order to be espressive, into being aware of the inevitable, unstoppable expression of your experience through the body, so to stop worry about doing and be interested about what’s moving through.

Each session is in itself a possibility for a concrete understanding of the principles about the creative process from a Zen, Mindfulness view point. So each session can be booked singularly and yet there is a journey structured, if you follow all three sessions.

The proposal of all encounters regards a conscious action into the unconscious. Like consciously jumping into the emptiness and let the unconscious processing the landing. There is an unbalancing process between conscious and unconscious, controlling and out of control, stillness and movement and the awareness of which allows the expression to be unpredictable and spontaneous. The action that holds life is an unconscious action, that is inevitable and surprising. Pasquale’s work doesn’t want to be a new approach that can be a substitution to a different one, but rather it is a physical self inquire on what is true, what is real in terms of experience. What is a real experience? 

There is a possibility, that by doing nothing, you notice something,

that has always been present and yet you have never seen. "
