Rigorous folding: 

     Act Remember Write Act Again

We will present an action (folding), remember it through gesture, word and thought in order to reflect on it rigorously and then return to acting it once again. We will set off a series of circular transformations which articulate our own concerns as practitioner-researchers, where we seek to celebrate the intangible nature of our work while also framing, remembering and critically reflecting upon it. The circular nature of our experiment, we hope, will break down the unhelpful but still prevalent dichotomies that exist within the Academy today separating embodiment and intuition from intellectual practices.
