8 day INTENSIVE LABORATORY "INFANT MELEE" with Yuko Kaseki (Berlin) and Valentin Tszin (Moscow)
Oct 30 - Nov 6, Berlin, Studio 44
Concept All kinds of bodily challengers in the realm of the physical, the philosophical, and the professional are invited to take part in this exclusive and experimental movement & performance art laboratory, which will result in the creation of a performance. Valentin Tszin and Yuko Kaseki share their experience in creating performances and thus guide the attendees through an advanced exploration of bodies, movement, stillness, voice, silence, noise, inner and outer objects, interaction, playfulness, and moreover an understanding of light, space and costume design. Participants won't be given a methodology, but will be encouraged to break borders and to find their own authenticity and freedom within the frames of a style, an idea, a group work.The polar difference between Kaseki and Tszin inevitably points at a confrontation of artistic worlds. Paradoxically they succeed in creating extraordinary collaborations. This is their second collaborative workshop.Performance A concrete performance idea will be developed together during the workshop. All participants, as well as Kaseki, Tszin, some invited dancers and special guest, the musician Kazuhisa Uchihashi (guitar, daxophone) will take part in the performances. Content
Valentin Tszin will focus on his method "Theatre of Radical Levels", which is based on a distinct division into five elements: orthodox, relative, illusive, iterative and naive. In contiguity with these five elements of natural artistry there occurs a positive conflict, which liberates the radicalism source of one's levels.
Yuko Kaseki's training is nurtured by Butoh method, blending with Noguchi Taiso and Tai Chi Dao-in. It aims to open an awareness of inner and outer world and to realize the permeable body. Original movement will be encountered in playful, elemental, collaborative improvisations with time and spaces to find ones own unique body, reality, and exposure.

Butoh-based dance workshopwith Özlem Cosen9 − 10 August 2014 ___ENThis workshop particularly addresses those who have the courage to challenge their body and mind. Butoh for me is inner movement, it is expressed differently by each individual and it seeks transformation through inner and outer processes.This workshop wants to facilitate a physical and emotional transformation, personal and communal at the same time. Butoh-based exercises will be employed to lead the way to the unconscious with a possibility to get into unknown depths and conquer physical boundaries. The workshop intends to give particular tools at hand, not only for performing artists, to broaden our physical and also somewhat self-afflicted emotional limitations. We will release what needs to surface through bodily quakes. This inner movement is expressed through every particle of our being, our body, our voice...For further information please feel free to get in touch with me. No previous dance experience necessary.DEBody Quakes - Butoh-basierter Tanz-Workshop Dieser Workshop richtet sich an alle diejenigen, die den Mut haben, ihrem Körper und Geist Anderes abzuverlangen und die Lust haben, sich tiefergehenden, unerwarteten, abstrakten Ausdrucksformen zu stellen.Für mich ist Butoh Bewegung von innen, die von jedem unterschiedlich ausgedrückt wird und die versucht, innere und äußere Prozesse zu transformieren.Dieser Workshop soll eine physische und emotionale Transformation ermöglichen, die persönlich und gemeinschaftlich zugleich ist. Durch Butoh-basierte Übungen möchte ich uns einen Weg zum Unterbewussten ebnen, um so in ungeahnte Tiefen zu tauchen und gleichzeitig physische Grenzen zu sprengen. Mit den Übungen möchte ich uns wichtige Mittel an die Hand geben, um unsere körperlichen und emotionalen Engpässe zu überwinden. Hierbei entstehen sehr persönlich motivierte, intrinsische Bewegungsformen, die jeder individuell entdecken und erleben soll. Diese innere Bewegung wird mit jeder Faser unseres Seins, unseres Körpers, unserer Stimme ausgedrückt.Für weitere Informationen wendet euch gerne an mich. Tanzerfahrung ist nicht erforderlich.___› Für alle Stufen geöffnet. | Workshop open to all levels.

Dance Performance Workshopby Nathalie Fari (atelier obra viva) & guest Teacher: Janin Walter27 − 31 August 2014___In this workshop we want to investigate the current practices and various formats of site specific performances. During five days we want to enable moments of intensity and inquiry by using our everyday life and own body as a material. Therefore, we will explore different areas of Berlin, especially close to Tatwerk in Neukölln and create different forms of narration (scores, stories, or scripts) and action. Our main goal is to reflect and inquire on our understanding of how we can occupy, acquire, use, enliven and interpret a certain space in the city. How can we translate the experiences made in the public space into a performative language or singular action? What are the insights or results of such a kind of artistic production? are central questions for us. This workshop will look at these questions while working on a collaborative performance to be presented in public space on the last day.___› This workshop is open for students and professional artists from different backgrounds who are interested in working with the own body or in performance and site specfic art. Maximum number of participants are 12.

NOT FLAMENCO with Anna Natt & Yalda Younes 21 − 22 June 2014 Not Flamenco, enables participants to extract the aspects of Flamenco closest to its original roots of an avant-garde form of protest and liberation. By approaching this form through a contemporary dance lens, Flamenco is able to become a universal language free from its traditional associations. Participants will be taught how to harness flamenco forms and stylistically reinvent and repurpose them according to their individual expression and artistic interests. Not Flamenco is open to movers of all levels and anyone who is curious to interact with this art form on a personal level and without the weight of tradition. Each session will start with a yoga based warm- up that will center us in our bodies. Once we've activated our awareness we will put on our shoes and begin tapping into the ground, exploring the contradictory yet complementary forces of rooting the feet into the earth while sending the torso towards the sky. ___ DATES Saturday, June 21, 2014 + Sunday, June 22, 2014 14h − 18h PRICES 70/60 ermäßigt INFO www.tatwerk-berlin.de/w_not-flamenco.html

July 17 - 20, 2014, Berlin
TRIUMVIRATE1.jpgThree radical experimenters, dancers and choreographers will make a collaborative workshop for the first time in Berlin.These artists are different in physicality, history, geographical location and nationalities. They will share their own methodology of movement, influenced by Butoh, physical theatre, contemporary dance, performance art and improvisation. And there will appear a brand-new form through blending their ideas in this special workshop. Valentin Tszin will focus on his "Theatre of Radical Levels" method which is based on the distinct division into five elements: orthodox, relative, illusion, iteration and naivety. In contiguity of these five elements of natural artistry there occurs a positive conflict which lets out the source of radicalism of one's "levels".Sung Kuk Kang shows his special existence, movement and dramaturgy. Participants will be encouraged to discover their original dance.Yuko Kaseki's basic training on Butoh method, Noguchi Taiso, Tai Chi Dao-in aims to open awareness of inner and outer world and to realize permeable body. Playful and original movement will be encountered through elemental improvisations with time and spaces.Workshop presentation will be shown on the last day.TatwerkHasenheide 9, Gewerbehof - Aufgang 1, 3.
