Behind the Face of a Rock, Throwing Stones currently exists as an enquiry and process of choreographic research, that is centred upon an experiential understanding and knowledge of British Sign Language, Mindfulness and Connectivity.
The opening or gateway of creative influence has been supported by the introduction of Ma, which can be translated from Japanese to mean a gap/pause/interval. Together, the artists involved began by physically interpreting the possibilities of Ma, by responding with an assertive series of gestures, postures and settlements of physical contact. Instigated by the proposition of using the entire body as a listening instrument, capable of feeling, touching and seeing the colours, and textures of sound, sound in space and in silence.
