Working method

Margrét Sara has focused her professional research on physical doorways into physiological, psychological and emotional sub worlds association with myofascial release and beyond. Developing the sensation and state-oriented practice Full Drop Into The Body. Through her development of this practice 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. It was developed whilst creating a body of artistic works that address the mental, emotional and physical states of the citizens living within the current social political environment, and how that reality expresses itself in our matter. The working method directly informs the theme of the artistic works, and extend beyond the limits of professionalism and performance making. The first artistic work created from this on going research was in 2013. Followed by an on going research into the method. Launched with the aim of 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 and performance practice necessary to convey it. Full Drop is a practice of training enhanced consciousness and presence of the individual, and it is a practice of de-conditioning which is in itself directly healing and holistic,  as well as a conscious political gesture.
