Intensity & Reduction
Thursday, 04.05.17, 15:45-18:15
The workshop’s emphasis is to develop original movement through body awareness, sensitivity, and also discover hidden dynamic energy. Physical training is based on Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi Dao-yin and Butoh methodology. We practice for the whole body to be permeable and awake deeper layers of sensitivity. The workshop offers the possibility to seek and experience in solo, duet and group improvisations with image, element, space, and relationship. Through intensity and reduction everyone can dive deeply into stillness/movement and translate it into individual manifestations.
