Online and Live at Universe 9 in Hergiswil, Switzerland

Workshop: Butoh - Deconstruct the Darkness14:00 - 16:30
Never fixed in culture or time, this dance remains a personal investigation.
Allow images to change your body or your action. Transform your condition until you perceive your programming. Deconstruct your habits. Develop energy-efficient and fluid movement. Intensively examine yourself through new frames. The training will encourage physical and mental receptivity as well as precise physical engagement.
Butoh dance belongs to mystery. Walk, crawl, roll, spiral, extend, contract, transform the dance.
Workshop: Dao Yin17:45 - 19:45
Dao Yin practices focus on the interconnected nature of sinews, muscle and bone. The training opens and stretches the channels of the body to develop a more resilient, strong and healthy web of tissue. The solar plexus and lower abdomen initiate the movement of limbs. Conversely, the movement or condition of limbs can affect the internal areas of the torso. Spiral motion and extension will open the joints and tissues, allowing energy to travel more efficiently through the body.
