”...an inhibited intentionality, exemplified in a characteristic failure to commit the whole body to a particular task...” (Iris Marion Young)
Working with movement as speculative force PALATE 12-15ml creates a combination of signs in order to create pathways of meaning to be interpreted by its viewers. It conceptualizes movement and acts of the dancers as a way of communicating recognizable forms to both satisfy and break the thought process of the spectators while they view the piece. It uses materials (plastic, water, soundscape) to frame the space and the bodies of the dancers.
It has used descriptions of movement, body and spatiality by Iris Marion Young in ''Throwing Like A Girl (1980): A Phenomenology of Feminine Body Comportment, Motility and Spatiality'' as a framework for the improvised and set movement material.
