This workshop will offer invitations, sharing exercises and scores that seek for pleasure making moments, (understanding, that pleasure is no simple place, and that pleasure seeking looks, feels, moves and manifests very differently for each one of us) The workshop poses pleasure as the desired horizon, accepting that we may not reach the horizon(s), but it is the dream. Through what Romany calls Boundary Objects, (inspired and informed by the work of Lygia Clarks, relational objects and by her recent collaborations with Juan Beatncuth) Romany will invite everyone to seek possible doors to finding pleasure in what we do and in how we do it. It's not a given, there's no guarantee, there's no refund (it's free anyway ;) …. and yes, it's a high risk practice.

This workshop begins from the place after falling (not understanding falling only as - or - from a place of ableist verticality) but yes, to falling and precarity and loosing control and feeling and moving and being moved by… and yes to honouring the option and place of - for - and in - horizontality. From here, we will seek pleasure - from the floor level - from the ground level - from looking at the stars' level.

It's an invitation to stay with the horizon - (tal), and to explore the possible relations to + with these “Boundary objects”, it will be an exploration session using different objects, materials, devices and extensions in proximity to the body -ies (the distance of closeness is for each one to measure). The workshop is an invitation towards a somatic, sensory, movement based exploration between body- ies and objects - between matters and materials, between the liminal and the xxx, between the felt and the imagined, moving together towards the desired horizon - s of pleasure seeking.

Touch + ing is an option. (btw: we are always being touched and - or in touch with something ?! That blew my mind when i read it for the first time)

Consent is a must. And we each choose what we (are) touch - ing and are being touched by - with - from.

You seek your pleasure spot - s.
