connecting breath to the emotion. what does that mean?
i realized after this run that i was finding ways to breathe with Kumiko and as a result, i was starting to find myself in the aquarium.
after that, it wasn’t as easy. mostly because the rest of my scenes are not just with the puppet, but also a whole puppet team.
Fergus is the lead puppeteer, guiding Toru’s head, his thinking. His eyes are what guide his vision and the rest of the body moves to encounter it. and i couldn’t tell how he was breathing. in my newfound world of letting go, i was trying to release into Fergus, release into Kumiko, release into Toru (and the other characters, and the world itself). and to connect the emotion to the breath, i was trying to release into the breath. but i couldn’t find it. it was because i couldn’t find Fergus’ breath. i was trying to listen for it, to see it, to feel it. and i either came up with nothing or i felt confused about how it connected to the emotion.
