I like to tut.
Tutting is creating shapes with right angles with arms and hands.
It is often combined with body popping.
I first tutted a few weeks ago, when Being Frank came to my school to educate the students in my charge in the ways of Physical Theatre.
This comprised streetdance (featuring tutting), parkour, capoeira and so forth.
Simon taught us how to tut.
I rather took to tutting (although I did not know it as such at the time) – such that I was asked to lead the group in sequences in subsequent sessions.
Researches brought its history and definition. Regarding the former, I was surprised to discover ancient origins. It was based on shapes made by figures on Egyptian tombs. Figures who were, it would seem, performing chironomy, being a kind of sign language representing musical notes.
All of this leads me to speculate as to the possibility that my affinity with tutting arises from a past life as an Egyptian chironomist.
Just a thought.
