Abstract

The chapter focuses on a gut holding mannerism, observed in an improvised movement workshop with teen girls living in an ex-industrial town in south Wales (UK), as a vantage point from which to explore what more the gesture might be telling us. Drawing on Gille Deleuze’s (1993) readings of Leibniz concept of ‘Fold’ as a differential, we speculatively explore scalar orders of time, space and matter. Using a diffractive analysis (Barad, 2007; Haraway, 2008) with a transdisciplinary compass we offer three speculative journeys that fold outwards from the gut-holding mannerism: folds of time and place; gender unfolds and gut reactions. By taking the gut holding mannerism as a fulcrum we imagine folds that become larger and larger expanding into space, place and the universe, or become smaller and smaller by focussing on corporeal-movement, psycho-dynamic experiences and the ‘thinking gut’ (Wilson, 2015). We question what more the gut mannerism can illuminate, what more girls can be, and what more ex-mining communities might become.
