    Universe 9, Hergiswil, Switzerland

    2-Month Winter Training with inkBoat

    Led by Shinichi and Dana Iova-Koga, this will be a unique training opportunity, a chance to train, develop and articulate your abilities, awareness and possibilities as a human, mover or performer. Participants are invited to make significant and lasting improvements to mobility, perception and compositional awareness.

    Participants will train 5 days a week (Saturday and Sunday off), 5 hours per day from December 9 to February 5 in a studio at the base of Mt. Pilatus, at Lake Luzern in Switzerland.
    We hone internal sensibilities and physical expression. We work with physical/psychological risk and embodied images to redraw and refine the body map. This training requires a strong commitment of body/mind and time.

    9:00 - 17:00

    NATURES Festival, Barcelona

    Dance on LandFor all bodies who wish to create artful play between raw, earthy elements to personal expression and development

    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. In this intensive workshop, led by Shinichi Iova-Koga, develop your sensorial mind and creative responsiveness through rigorous physical and improvisational training rooted in Noguchi Taiso, Action Theater, Dao Yin, Aikido and Qigong exercises. Immerse yourself in diverse environments to study both the patterns inherent in these environments as well as the responses your body. Then return to the dance studio to analyze and digest the experiences of the body in the wild.
    POSTPONED due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for updates.

    The Storm in My House (CANCELLED due to COVID-19.)

    Friday May 22, 8:00 PM Saturday May 23, 3:00 PM

    San Francisco International Arts Festival, Cowell Theater

    The Storm in My House

    The Storm in My House excavates the perceived lines between peoples, lands and values. We cannot know the outcome. We question and embody what can be done to survive, live in a home, be kind, play and embrace the changes that will come. We also ask for grace as we face the storm. Inside the performance you will find the song maker, the twisted dancer, the listener and the interplay of darkness and the light that defines it. There is despair. There is hope. Performed by Shinichi Iova-Koga, Kamerin McDonald and Suki O’Kane. Lighting by Allen Willner. Sets and Props by Frank Lee.
    CANCELLED due to COVID-19. Stay tuned for a video version of the performance.

    Action Theater with Shinichi (CANCELLED due to COVID-19.)

    10:00 - 16:00

    Western Sky Studio, Berkeley, CA

    Masterclass with ShinichiEach 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. To craft this life, 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.
    CANCELLED due to COVID-19.

    Butoh – Deconstruct the Darkness

    10:00 - 12:30

    ImPulsTanz, Vienna
    ARSENAL E

    ButohNever fixed in culture or time, Butoh remains a personal investigation. Examine bodily actions through the filters of image (i.e.: your feet have melted), condition (i.e.: become rigid then soften) and ethos (i.e.: your body is not your own). The training will encourage physical and mental receptivity as well as precise physical engagement. Build a coherent body ready to embrace the chaotic stream of the subconscious.

    Seki Method Workshop by Minako Seki

    10:00

    Universe 9, Hergiswil

    Through imagination we can connect consciousness with unconsciousness, as well as micro cosmos with macro cosmos. Imagination is our creative impulse and our motor for artistic expression.
    During the workshop we use the power of imagination as a main source, to evoke our senses and create natural quality in the physical principles of movement. MORE
