We follow a pathway to draw out each others' inner bodies; exposing the skin behind clothes; exposing bodies of feeling, bodies of emotion and bodies of thought behind the skin. We experience vulnerability, abandon and loving availability; we pay strong attention to each other and take great care of each other. Our experience of each other is full of magic when we expose our inner natures as well as our bodies.
We feel called out by certain individuals to create specific rituals of response and initiation. Our bodies form a group sculpture, perform links with the dead, turn into plates covered with birthday cake, mimic and mirror each other, draw sounds and specific motions from each other, and speak to each other in the new gestures of freshly re-invented language.
Not only does magic flow between us, but magic emerges from each natural setting. Nature's forces come pouring through sunlight, breezes, and the motion and stillness of leaves, grasses and trees, to escort us into ecstatic states. Our inner states keep changing as sun and wind change, and we move in pace with those changes, until we look and seem slow like turtles, or wildly giddy like birds.
In performance, we develop our standards of loving and states of attunement, so we can then perform public rituals that bring a larger community into higher states. We often repeat performances to advance into new states of group body; with each performance, some of us become more familiar while others join the magic for the first time.
