Convex/Concave

convex concave cont
Convex/Concave (cont.)
  • Steps:
  • Stand comfortably with arms hanging loose, breath evenly through mouth, and imagine standing in the center of a sphere encapsulating your body.
  • Experience the space – backward, forward, side to side, and up and down. Explore the sphere and find a rhythm/dance. Notice how as one surface of the body stretches to become convex, its opposite becomes concave. Continue to focus on breathing.
  • Now notice the interchange between mirrored emotions as the body moves from convex to concave. Seek to locate opposite feelings and attitudes (defensive/open, giving/receiving, extroverted/introverted). If comfortable, when locating these intense feelings add sound. Exaggerate and amplify these sounds and observe the tone changes as the body moves.
