Hvordan går det?
And I answer without being aware of how I actually walk. How do I balance out / relate to the situation? An inquiry and interest in one or more directions and levels of effort. Into the work of standing and walking. What happens? What do I experience? What do I sense being expressed in me and through me?
A continuous exchange within me between will, bodily matter, gravity and the ground.
Functionality - support - transmission of power - transfer of weight / shift of weight - driving force – flexibility / elasticity – tension / contraction - release / relief - charge / discharge.
This has become an ongoing project where on a daily basis, (for the last 2-3 years) I continuously attempt to come in contact, with what it implies to tune in on daring to take the first step, for the first time, trying to walk into and towards
something unknown. What is present in me and how, now, now. now………………?
A rediscovery of experiencing.

A praxis which focuses on the sensorial presence in the challenge of a moment, continually questioning the meeting with gravity, the substrate and how the balancing of situations take place. She is influenced by studies in “Body Mind Centering”. In 2016 Rimestad received Danseinformasjonens honorary award.
