Body Weather Workshop Amsterdam
5- day intensive
with Katerina Bakatsaki and/ or Frank van de Ven
Body Weather is a comprehensive training and performance practice that
investigates the intersections of bodies and their environments. Bodies are not
conceived as fixed and separate entities but are - just like the weather -
constantly changing through an infinite and complex system of processes
occurring in- and outside of these bodies.
This introductory workshop proposes a re-examination of the habitual body
and it's accompanying mental structures as a means of indicating and reflecting
upon possible areas of change in the perception and the actual state of our own
body and that of others.
As a training, Body Weather is of relevance to anyone interested in
exploring the body and physical presence and can be aligned to various dance
and theatre practices.
The daily training-routine consists of:
An energetic, dynamic and rhythmic movement work-out that observes the
kinaesthetic sensitivity and co-ordination potential of the body-in-motion
while developing strength, endurance, flexibility and grounding.
Structured and paced work with partners, concerned with breathing, stretching,
alignment and the notion of ‘relaxation’.
A wide forum of explorations including work on segmentation, different
speeds within the body and the notion of time, sensory investigation, spatial
awareness inside and outside the body, image-to-movement work.
Emphasis is given on observation and feedback as a means to objectify
experience and to sharpen and articulate the perception of bodies.
The term and
philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early
1980's by dancer Min Tanaka and further developed by Laboratories worldwide.
Bakatsaki and van de Ven were members of Min Tanaka’s Maijuku Performance
Company in Japan, from 1983-1991. Since 1993 they lead Body Weather Amsterdam,
a platform for Training and Performance Research.
