Questioning/thinking on meaningful and critical moments
In the decision of travelling to Neerpelt, consciously (seperately, but alltogether, from different geographical locations), lies a motoric moment. What does it mean?
We were allready travelling (on land), and for the first time we used the travel as part of the 'connection making'. The parallel whatsapp-group was used to reinforce this idea of a common journey. Knowing there was also people present in the online group, that were not travelling.
The journey is made semi-public as part of the project. It was the first time the journey became instrumental for the process as a whole.
Jaja, Kevin, Marit were there first, which altered there responsability of hosting 'the others' into the ecosystem 'Dommelhof' (picking up the keys, talking with the genator)
Connection to the travel situation towards vilnius. Commoning of the travel here is very different from Siebren, Breg and GJ taking planes towards a location. (The commoning of the journey was christalized from the conditions that we set as a practice)
Siebren stepping into the circle was a poetic moment. He was walking towards 'the coordinates' that Breg sent him via whatsapp. Stepping into the circle was done within an openness.
Making the dramaturgical moment of 'entering' more conscious, was much more part of the process.
