"Root and Stem – perpetual momentum"
3 - 7 December 2018 at 10 - 15h
“It is not so much where my motivation comes from but rather how it manages to survive.” ― Louise Bourgeois
Life is improvisation, every moment is new.
We need water and air, ground and sky, tools and handcrafts, imagination and pragmatism, spontaneity and planning, structure and chaotic freedom.
Sometimes we need to use everything we have and at the same time let go of all that we have.
Surviving is a serious game, where one will find new ways of life.
Surprise yourself, what can appear inside you… waiting, what can arrive around you…
Play to find the unknown fruit.
This workshop is open for all people who want to investigate and challenge their deeper self and who have curiosity, courage
and desire to explore movement and expression through the performative body.
DOCK11, Kastanienallee 79, 10435 Berlin, Saal 3
WS in December - 280 Euro (260 Euro paid by Nov 11)

Following Yuko Kaseki’s continuous research with various physical training methods such as Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi Dao-yin, Butoh methodology,
Dance Improvisation and Live Art, the workshop is aiming to develop original movement through body awareness, sensitivity, and also discover hidden dynamic energy.
Finding the core of our body (Tanden), which is our energy source, listening honestly to the variants of the Inner- and develop this in relation to the Outer-world,
will be an ongoing focus point. Direct physical connection with the others and the space will stimulate and enhance physical imagination and help accumulate a vocabulary of movement and practical action.
Participants are encouraged to discover authentic movement of own Self from a deeper sense, through playful Improvisation with imagination of elements,
essence of quality, gravity, scale, dimension, directionality... searching balance between both extremes of tense and release, silence and chaos, strong presence and disappearance...
sharing personal experience of survival in the shape of movement becomes the main ingredient of a collective dance improvisation
