Abstract

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent era of social distancing, it has become imperative for many artists to maintain somatic embodied practices. This article will address the embodied nature of collaborative creative process at a distance. Using Walter Mignolo’s ‘pluriversal worlds’ as a starting point, the article will explore how artists can maintain collaborative migrant knowledge production across geographical and imaginary spaces. We will analyse the digital dialogue commission ‘Third nature’ and how it applied the Authentic Movement somatic dyadic technique in a digital format. The article will also reflect on how the ‘Third nature’ co-sharing and co-witnessing process allowed the artists to dwell in the imaginary and natural border territory and to still feel upheld by one another.
