Pulling Down From The Ephemeral
by Brooke Stamp

Tracing The Steps
Of Movement With Scent

AN OLFACTIVE SCORE TO A MOVEMENT PIECE BY CHOREOGRAPHIC ARTIST BROOKE STAMP

“Pulling Down From The Ephemeral” is a performance by the choreographic artist Brooke Stamp. Studio FOLIE created a scent score to trace the artist’s movement by olfactively rendering the environmental conditions of the piece, the artist’s concept, and her unique philosophy towards dance.

» Through  Pulling Down from the Ephemeral, I tried to imagine, or make manifest a trajectory of energetic sensation downward, something that pulls..  downward, imploring new gravity within the body, a falling, a kinetic power .. as an avenue for noticing my body as a living, material, earthly being. This is the searching for a sensation of grounding, back down from the body’s always bourgeoning loss/disappearance to other, invisible even astral dimensions. « – BROOKE STAMP, artist

» We imagined a fragrance around Rosin, the substance that dancers use on their ballet shoes, that smells of turpentine, resin, wood, dust, musk. Associated with light musky notes and spicy facets of a warm skin accord, I went further in the evocation of an atmospheric dance. For the dry down I stretched the scent using Cypress wood and Pine sap… You can then smell a tension between the tangibility of the body, of what is grounded to the floor, and the ephemeral aspiration of the cosmos energy: spirituality. « –JEROME DI MARINO, perfumer
