It's time to plan your vacations, isn't it?!

Why not to spend it in the countryside, living in an ancient house (former watermill) and enjoying the grace of movement and dance, sharing wonderful moments with the associates, caring both your body and soul, under the delicate guidence of Yumiko Yoshioka?

Yumiko Yoshioka's Summer Workshop 
Body Resonance, based on Butoh and Organic Movement

18-25 July, Wroclaw, Poland

Open to everybody interested in Butoh, dance and exploration of body and soul


The main focus of this workshop is a conscious research of our body/mind/soul unification, so we can deeply enjoy the intrinsic process of metamorphosis through the spirit of dance.

Through a continuous exploration of our past collective memories, we can strike a vein of abundant creative resources, enriching the essence of our life. 
The body is a receptacle of time.
Body resonance is a key to opening up the doors of an ever-changing world inside and outside of ourselves, which helps the body to unfold its secrets, holding them up until they shine and tremble. 
Everything is in resonance with each other.
Through a dialogue with our body, we can learn to be moved by inner and outer forces, thus realizing we are a part of the Universe.
A dance of metamorphosis inevitably appears.

Content

26-29 March, Berlin | Error and Intensity in the workshop of Michiyasu Furutani, accompanied by live music/Adam Goodwin& contrabass.


The "error" doesn't exist on the stage... and if exists, intensity - is something that is missing in the error, or it can't even be an error when it holds intensity.
How Error exists on the stage? What is Intensity on the stage?
We shall take not the paved road, but go into the dense forest next to the road, in our research of intensity and its individuality.

Butoh is an expressive avant-garde dance/performance art created in the 1950-1960s in Japan. Known for its unconventional nature Butoh addresses to the entire body.

Studio 142 | Mariannenplatz 2 | Kunstquartier Bethanien | 10997 Berlin

Open to all levels. No Butoh experience required. Just curiousity and error.

The number of participants is limited.
Payment: 160 Euro.
Registration: org(at)butohchannel.com

Butoh is an expressive contemporary dance created by Tatsumi Hijakata then developed together with Kazuo Ohno, in Japan in the 1950-1960s, known for its unconventional nature it addresses to the entire body.

African dance strives to provide a great reconciliation of the mind and body, thought and instinct, by freeing the gestures and letting go in the rhythm.

The spiritual journey of Butoh and African dance - Afro-Butoh, is a process that leads us to search deep in ourselves, within our being, to discover and explore our latent qualities in the development of our personality - physically, intellectually, socially, spiritually.

Tebby W.T. RAMASIKE, a South African choreographer, dancer, dance teacher & researcher and cultural activist,  founder of  TeBogO Dance – TBO (dance ensemble), a member of World Dance Alliance -Europe and UNESCO's International Dance Council (CID). Full bio

In the frames of Butoh Festival Berlin

Workshop platform 

22-23 November 2014

It’s a challenge for those who passionately pursue the highest reward – the metamorphosis to a “danced body”. 

2 intense days, 12 hours, 6 teachers… and myriads of worlds and realities to live through your body, mind and soul. Shifting from one  guide to another, tense to loose, finally to be lost in who we are and to find the dance without dancer.

November 22

10:00-12:00  “SKIN … LIFE … SOUL!” Afro-Butoh with Tebby Ramasike (South Africa)  

Tebby gives a workshop just a week before at Butoh festival in Barcelona. So in addition to Afro-Butoh he brings us sunny spanish vibes and warm greetings from our friends in Barcelona. Wonderful!

12:30-14:30  “Take a Butohk” with Michiyasu Furutani (Japan)

15:20-17:20  “Body in Pages” with Yuko Kaseki (Japan)

November 23

10:00-12:00  “Body quakes” with Özlem Cosen (Germany)

12:30-14:30  “Nothingness in the Now” with Marina Epp (Germany)

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.


Application
Please send a short motivation letter, your CV and if available photo or video link of your artistic work to
info@cokaseki.com.

Fee: 380 euro / 360 euro paid until October 15

Conditions
The high intensity of the workshop requires strong wills and physical abilities of the participants. By the participation each person commits to the responsibility on providing steady engagement in all activities for the creation of the performance.

The laboratory will be based on several techniques from Jerzy Grotowski investigation and developed by Pere Sais and the research group Ars Performance Lab.

-Presence, watchful atention and perception channels.

-Circulation of the atention.

-Night vigils.

-Archaic forms of movement.

-Vibratory chants.
-Exercises "corporals".

Note:

The work will be developed in and out of the house, through the countryside. The program may be changed because of the weather or the specific dynamic of the group.

Limited number of participants: 8 persons.

Price: 180 € (food and residency included, transportation apart) We organize cars from Barcelona for those who travel from there (the cost of the trip Barcelona-Caseres and vice versa is around 16-20€)
