transomatics is a breath-work and movement guide designed by and for trans people. In season 1 we explore the skin, psoas, gut, gravity and dance.
Stillness II – transomatics
artwork and editing by Fury: Fury has been writing poetry since they were 12. After a brief but intense stint in Melbourne’s spoken word scene, they settled into journalism and queer advocacy. They have recently branched out into writing for screen. see a collection of their work here.
audio editing by Iris Lee: Iris hates bios, but somehow sometimes is a writer. She has previously worked in hospitality and cleaning, makes community radio, and believes in collective social change. She is a white settler, queer and trans. see some of her work featured on Archer Magazine.
music by Tahl Katz: aka the producer/singer Queen Daddy. They refer to themselves as an RnB pop-daddy; with cute and cheeky lyrics sandwiched together with an RnB beat and soft pop-jazz vocals. stream their work on Spotify.
accessibility: most movement is done while lying on your back, or seated however is comfortable for you. I recommend having a rug, towel or blanket between you and the floor. You may also want a cushion for your head when lying down. episodes four and five involve standing and walking. Transcripts are available as PDF and WORD documents for each recording.
a short introduction to transomatics
episode one: skin
Here we explore
s the skin we live in. We will get to know how the skin embodies us.
episode two: psoas
Here we get to know the internal workings of our body: how they all connect through our muscles, ligaments and fascia.
episode three: gut
Our organs are the inner clockwork that keep us moving. Here we explore how to care of these vital parts of our bodies.
episode four: gravity
Here we actively engage with gravity, strengthening our bond between body and the earth.
episode five: dance
Bonus episode! This one is to dance to, to celebrate your body.
