For the last 8 years Margrét Sara has focused her professional research on physical doorways into physiological and emotional sub worlds association with myofascial release and beyond. Through this research she began the process of mapping out a new category of performative body language, ways of developing it further, and transferring this knowledge to others. The working methods directly inform the theme of the artistic works, and extend beyond the limits of professionalism and performance making. The first 3 years of research were done privately between 2010-2012, whilst the performance works created during this period did not engage with this new physical language. The first artistic work created from this on going research where performers were included in the process was “Step Right To It” in 2013. Followed by the “Blind Spotting Performance Series”, in 2014, which was launched with the aim of continuing the research and creating working conditions which would make it possible for the group to dedicate a longer period of time to work in-depth on a specific artistic topic and develop the ambitious and detailed physiological language necessary to convey it.
A new cycle in this on going research began in 2015 and extended over a period of 2 years. Through this research a new branch within the Full Drop Into the Body practice opened up and the performance HYPER which premiered in february 2017 and Conspiracy Ceremony-HYPERSONIC STATES premiering in November 2017 were made. In 2018, Pervasive Magnetic Stimuli, premiered, a new work dedicated to the subconscious reality of our lives.
