con • sens • us  acknowledgements: 


con·sens·us draws extensively from contact-improvisation, Boal-work, and several other meetings & encounters...

special thanks & respect to Elaine Summers and her magnificent pioneer work in choreography and intermedia,
including her extraordinary technique
Kinetic Awareness®

her dances
Invitation to Secret Dancers Circle Dance with Balloons, Buttons and Buttonholes, and Walking Dance for Any Number (among many others) were used extensively and gave a great inspiration during this series.

equally instrumental were the concepts of responsible anarchy and ethical reformation
both coined by Mary O'Donnell-Fulkerson
from many years of her work in Release, plus her teaching of Open Form Composition.

finally, the system of the Six Viewpoints as originated by Mary Overlie (also developed by Anne Bogart / SITI-company) provide an extra framework of orientation and to create successfully in a situation.
