The Breather

The encounter of bluebird and wide horse at the horizon. a ballade
Spoken word composition for mixed choir from three to an unlimited number of people.


The encounter between bluebird and the wide horse works on several levels of consciousness. Through the common celebrating of a repetitive, rhythmical breathing and speaking, using the imaginative potential of a story, we created an experience contacting the individual body to the meta-body of the choir-community. As a piece of guided affective imagery, the choir-experience itself implements a source of memory on the body-mind complex,  which enhances the possible reenactment of conscious breathing in case of necessity.
