Re-Entering the Body’s Natural Wilderness9am - 5pm daily
Uferstudios / Studio 7, Uferstraße 8/23, 13357 Berlin, Germany
Teachers: Shinichi Iova-Koga, Dana Iova-Koga, Satu Palokangas, Sten Rudstrom
This workshop combines deep somatic awareness work with the imagistic play available in Butoh Dance, the detailed body research within Qi Gong, the raw expression of Action Theater improvisation and the connective presence necessary across the performative arts . Each day will start with sensory awareness work and gradually build into dynamic movement and voice exploration. The body and voice have always been connected through our breathing, nervous and muscular systems. In this workshop, you will re-enter the sensory wild world of the corporeal breath and movement, re-connect with quiet and an inner stillness and yield into the softness required for wild expression.
Registration Details TBA.
