    Within Stillness: Action Theater™ Improvisation Workshop

    10:30am - 4pm

    Western Sky Studio, Berkeley, California

    In this workshop taught by Shinichi Iova-Koga, we cultivate a grain of stillness within our minds as the improvisation gallops around in capricious directions. That stillness is a tiny weight holding the action in a state of tension, tethered, yet ready to be liberated.

    We start softly tuning up the body, using Noguchi Taiso (Water Body Training) and Martial Arts practice as the foundation. Then we enter into the improvisation, the composition, the rapport between bodies, time and space.

    EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT if registered by June 15

    Imagination changes the quality of what you do and opens a field of unexpected actions.  At the same time, noticing what IS leads to inexhaustible possibilities. Trust your body. Connect to the expansive space that is your personal/universal environment at Dance on Land, located on the Lost Coast of California. In this intensive workshop, led by Shinichi and Dana Iova-Koga, develop your sensorial mind and creative responsiveness through rigorous physical and improvisational training rooted in Noguchi Taiso, Body Weather Training, Action Theater, Yang Shen Gong and Qigong exercises.
