Guide to Assessing InterActive Function2Flow
Further Examples of Inquiry-Based Prompts that may be adapted to suit any InterActivity
InterActive Function (Connecting Postures)
Postural Prompts (Body Awareness) — Can you feel the ways you are creating a connection through your relational posture?
- Where is your weight distributed to create connection? Is it forward/ in the centre/ back/ off to one side ?
- What relationship does your postural alignment have to the floor? Is it low and connected to the ground? Is it lifted from a certain place? Is it grounded from a certain place?
InterActive Form (Connection Positions)
Positional Prompts (Spatial Awareness) – Can you feel the ways you are creating a connection through your relational position?
- Are you able to sense how twists and turns of your shoulders/torso/ hips/waist create connection?
- Are you able to sense how leaning more toward your partner or away affects feelings of connection?
- Are you aware of how changing your relative level, i.e., crouching down or standing up taller, affects feeling of connection?
InterActive Feeling (Connecting Sensations of Timing & Force)
Gestures (Actions of Body Parts) – Can you feel the ways you are creating a connection through varying movements of your hands/ torso/shoulders/ head?
- What hand movements create feelings of connection?
- What torso (shoulder/hip) movements create feelings of connection?
- What head movements create feelings of connection?
InterActive Flow (Connecting Energies)
Expressions (Movement Quality) – Can you feel the ways you are creating a connection through varying the timing and force of your movements?
- Can you start slowly and find a pace where you are moving as one?
- Can you progressively build up the pace and keep moving together?
- What helps you develop a synchronous sense of interactive play, i.e., a sustained pattern/rally/ rhythm?
- Can you feel when it is advantageous to break free from synchronous movement to add a layer of excitement and surprise?
- What helps you respond positively to unanticipated moments/ elements of surprise?
