This workshop will offer invitations, exercises and scores that seek 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) This workshop poses pleasure as the desired horizon, accepting that we may not reach the horizon (es), but it is the desire, the intention and the dream. Through what Romany calls Boundary Objects, (inspired and informed both by the work of Lygia Clarks, Relational Objects and by her recent collaborations with Juan Beatncuth) Romany will invite everyone to seek and open possible doors for finding the pleasure + enjoyment in what we do + 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 will begin from the place after falling, understanding falling as a metaphor for and as a practice of precarity, of losing control, of feeling, of moving and of being moved by. From and in a place of rest and horizontality - 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 explorative session that uses different objects, materials, devices and extensions in proximity to the body -ies (the distance + closeness is for each one if us (you) to measure). The workshop will be a somatic, sensory, movement based exploration between body- ies and objects - between matters and materials, between the liminal and the fixed and between the felt and the imagined.

Touch + ing + being touch - ed is an option. (Knowing that we are always being touched and, or - in touch with something - whether that's the floor, walls, our own clothes, our breath, gravity, each other etc.)

Consent is a must / we choose what we (are) touch - ing and being touched by - with - from. You seek your own pleasure spot - s.

Wear whatever makes you feel good (remember- pleasure is the desired horizon) bring layers, socks, blankets etc in case it gets cold - it is Glasgow and it will be November.

There will be water available in the space. Bring anything else that you need.
