    Workshop: Two Minds in Action

    Ufer Studios, Studio 1
    Uferstr. 8/23, Badstr. 41a
    13357 Berlin

    Each step, sound, word or action we generate extends an invitation to those around us, prompting a series of responses and interactions which become the flesh and bones of a new organism. Provided that we remain aware of this relationship, it lives.

    Ufer Studios, Studio 1
    Uferstr. 8/23, Badstr. 41a
    13357 Berlin

    As a child, high places terrified me. It’s natural as it could mean death to fall. The body flinches and tightens.  Lately, I’ve been practicing giving in to gravity, to release that contraction born from fear. And then I start sensing the depth of fear, the levels of fear. And then I fall again.

    Performance: Die Schwarze Spinne

    20:45

    Schwingplatz Allweg in Ennetmoos (NW) statt, Switzerland

     

    «Die schwarze Spinne», wie sie auf dem Allweg gespielt wird, holt die klassische Novelle von Jeremias Gotthelf aus dem Jahr 1842 in die Gegenwart und damit in unsere heutige Welt der globalisierten Landwirtschaft und der swissifizierten Volkskultur.

    Die Geschichte «Die schwarze Spinne» ist schweizerisches Kulturgut. In der laufenden Theater-Inszenierung in Ennetmoos steckt aber auch eine gehörige Portion asiatischer Philosophie. Der Bewegungskünstler Shinichi Iova-Koga sorgte für die Choreografie.

    Improvisation TrainingEach step, sound, word or action we generate extends an invitation to those around us. We play with timing and space while connecting to our internal feeling states. We learn to say “yes” to the unknown, allowing the situation to develop its own logic, personality and energy.

    The Con/textured Body, workshop with Dana

    1:00-4:00pm

    Asheville, North Carolina

    BeBe Studios, 20 Commerce Street

     

    Contexture- “the act, process, or manner of weaving parts into a whole” Miriam Webster

    Also an invented assemblage of Con- Latin prefix for “with or thoroughly” plus texture- “the feel, or consistency of a surface or a substance”

    Dana is delighted to be offering this 3 hour class in the same studio in Asheville, North Carolina where she danced as a child.

    Until relatively recently, human movement has evolved within the context of survival and a necessary, deep relationship to the environment. For most of us alive in First World modernity, this original context of movement has disappeared and with it has gone the diversity of environmental textures with which we once regularly engaged. For example, as a culture we seldom consciously relate to the ground, and simultaneously the ground we do most often move upon is flat, paved and even. In this class we will be exploring ways to “contexture” the body. We will be experimenting with ways the body can be unified through relationship to environment, we will explore connection to the ground/earth and we will play with ways to reseed the body with a multiplicity of textures. The movement explorations will be fundamental in nature, meaning that they can be applied to many different contexts- Everyday Life as well as various physical practices and disciplines, including but not limited to Butoh Dance. The primary resources Dana will be drawing from are Body Weather, Qigong and Movement Ecology. To find out more about her body of research and physical practices, entitled Elemental Vessel, go here

    Hosted by the Asheville Butoh Collective

    The Plurifluent Body, Workshop with Dana

    Friday June 14, 6:00-9:00 & Saturday June 15, 10:00-6:00

    Portland Oregon

     

    Basic Movement for Dance

    This workshop asks how we can explore the body landscape through multiple approaches- through form, through felt inner sensation and through work with images.

    Playing both indoors and out, we will research a diversity of movements and examine how doing so can contribute to creative dance making as well as health and mobility in the quotidian realm.

    Go here for more about Dana and the Elemental Vessel work. For more information or to register please write to Mizu Desierto: [email protected]
