Mouthing report – on dance

by Chinasa Vivian Ezugha

Face the mirror, choose a mirror
Move close to the mirror and zoom in with your eyes
and body, so that all you see is your mouth.

a) slowly start to move your mouth while its closed

remember that your mouth is now walking, so don’t be in such a hurry.

b) now slowly start to open your mouth until it hurts

Consider you have only 10 seconds or perhaps 1 minute to complete this action, in order to change a perspective or even someone’s life. Would it be easier to look at yourself in the mirror and acknowledge your mouth?
