"Chasing the Snails" is a piece situated within the context of "Research as Practice," exploring perceptual attention through imaginative movement patterns using somatic movement practice.

During the live performative process, I move in and out of recognition of relevant mental images through imaginative embodied movement practice. Through repetitive movement patterns, I invite the audience to visually and kinesthetically participate in this abstract, dynamic, and energetic improvisational performance.

Throughout the exploration, I am not conscious of the external world; I live in my imaginative world.

This work-in-progress presentation took place on March 29, 2022, at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, as part of the Research and Development module assessment.
