Abstract
This article explores what (working with) matter can tell us that language cannot or does not completely tell, about becoming a sensual, sexual woman free to move smoothly in and with her body. It explores how (working with) matter can transform living in, with and through a body, and how it affects and is affected. The text is centred around “touchpoints,” that is, encounters through touch, as experienced by the first author as a dancer on wheels, and diffracted and narrated through poetry and images interwoven with theory. These encounters are seen as mo(ve)ments in a powerful agential assemblage that holds both danger and transformative possibilities, leading us to reimagine freedom as a river of sparring intensities.
