(DIS)positioned

Performance Project

Is the body a product of society or does the body construct our social life and roles in society? In this laboratory we will approach the body as a repository and at the same time as a joint frame of social experiences, routines, production and patterns.

(DIS)positioned is a performance project that will take place over the course of three months. Inspired by the ideas of Pierre Bourdieu and his concept of the Habitus, we will research positions in social space through our bodies. How are social structures written in our bodies and therefore our minds? What structures inhabit us without our minds and souls realizing it? Is there a way to become aware of them? Can we position ourselves away from our daily lives, habits, opinions, beliefs and power systems? Can we decondition and recondition body patterns that have become part of our personality?

We are aware that our bodies are the products of society, but we want to create a deeper consciousness by adding the performative view and regarding the body as a generator of society through performance in daily life.

We want to experiment with reading in bodies, shaping bodies, rewriting on bodies, emptying bodies, training bodies, building connections between bodies and spaces, and much more.

The starting point for our performative research will be a physical training based on repetitions, principles and improvisations and the establishment of a shared perception among the group. From there we want to experiment with loops and moments of disruption to find our own corporal metaphors or embody the body/mind structures of others to explore ideas on a deeper level.

The group classes will be held once a week, and there will be weekly research assignments for participants to get into a more practical research mode, one related to everyday life. The project will culminate in a final presentation at the end of January.

SUZUKI UND VIEWPOINTS Workshop

Einführung in die Trainingstechniken Suzuki und Viewpoints
Für Performer, Schauspieler und Tänzer

mit Marta Rosa und Martin Carnevali

4 − 5 Oktober 2014 


SUZUKI
Das "Suzuki-Method Actor's Training" ist eine vom japanischen Regisseur Tadashi Suzuki und seiner Kompanie entwickelte Trainingstechnik, die auf klaren körperlichen Ausdruck, Tonus und Ausdauer abzielt.
Die Arbeitstechnik nutzt Formen aus dem No-und Kabuki-Theater, Martial Arts und klassischem Ballett, um dem Darsteller ständige körperliche und geistige Verfügbarkeit und Hingabe zu seiner darstellerischen Aufgabe zu ermöglichen. Auch als "Grammatik der Füße" bekannt, trainiert Suzuki in den einzelnen Formen (formalisierte Bewegungsabläufe, Gänge, Stampfen, skulpturale Bewegungsformen) vor allem den Kontakt des Künstlers mit dem Boden und einen nach außen gerichteten Fokus.

VIEWPOINTS
Viewpoints ist ein Wahrnehmungstraining und eine Improvisationstechnik, die die zwei wesentlichen Parameter, mit denen darstellende Künstler umgehen müssen − Zeit und Raum − aufschlüsselt und benennt und in ein Arbeitssystem überführt.
Die Technik ermöglicht dem einzelnen Künstler, vor allem aber einem Ensemble, nach gemeinsamen konkreten − und vor allem: konkret benennbaren Kriterien zu handeln. Schauspieler und Tänzer bekommen ein jederzeit verfügbares Instrumentarium zur Hand, das sich an äußeren Gegebenheiten orientiert und es dem Künstler ermöglicht, sich ununterbrochen zu seiner Umgebung ins Verhältnis zu setzen. Er trainiert dadurch nicht nur seine Wahrnehmung, sondern auch Flexibilität, Handlungs- und Kooperationsbereitschaft, sowie klaren körperlichen Ausdruck. Ursprünglich aus dem postmodernen Tanz stammend, hat die amerikanische Theatermacherin Anne Bogart Viewpoints für die Arbeit mit Schauspielern weiterentwickelt. 
Die beiden komplementären Techniken trainieren die Präsenz des Darstellers und seine Verbundenheit mit dem Augenblick und dem Ensemble.

Marta Rosa und Martin Carnevali
Sind Schauspieler. Sie haben mit Phillip Zarrilli, Ozfrank und Anne Bogart und der SITI Company gearbeitet.
* Martin Carnevali ist der Übersetzer von Anne Bogarts "The Viewpoints Book", das in Kürze auf Deutsch erscheinen wird.

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.

The workshop will focus in the exploration of the primary potentiality of the performer as a human being in action and it will be articulated in different elements/structures of work:


-Watching.
-"Dancing with the topography": walk/course around the country side/environment and adaptation to the ground

-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.

Place: Ca la Cultura, Caseres.

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€)

BODY QUAKES

Butoh-based dance workshop
with Özlem Cosen

9 − 10 August 2014 

___

EN

This 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.


DE

Body 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.

PERFORMANCE PRACTICES IN PUBLIC SPACE

Dance Performance Workshop
by Nathalie Fari (atelier obra viva) & guest Teacher: Janin Walter

27 − 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.

DATES
27 − 31 August 2014
12:00 − 18:00
› Total: 30 hours

PRICES
230€   |   Normal registration
10% discount for students, unemployed and early registration until 15.08.2014

Motimaru Dance Company
" Form of soul"
Butoh & body-mind-space metamorphosis
2 days intensive Workshop
Dates, Location, Price:
5th& 6th July 2014 ( 13:00- 19:00)
Studio 142 ( Kunstquartier Bethanien, Mariannenplatz 2, 1st floor, Room 142, 10997 Berlin)
€ 100


"Kara-da" means in Japanese body. " Kara" means emptiness and " da" means existence. This is how the Japanese considered what the body is, or ...who we really are. Here it is not talking only about Japanese culture, but the universal reality of the existence.
What we are looking for is a form which is not bound by traditions that is losing reality in this rapidly changing time, nor some stylized genre, but one which is liberate and connected to our own real being. Form of soul.
The main seed of the research comes from Kazuo Ohno dance studio- lessons form Yoshito Ohno. In their works we have found not the styles ( white painting, grotesqueness, etc) but the way to explore the universal reality of our body-mind- space through dance, and to embody everything such as paintings, sculptures, music, and any existence into dance.
The workshop does not intend to spread " butoh" or some certain style, but to devote it to contemporary arts and invite the participants to learn an essential approach to body-mind-space and create their own dance, art, life.

After the 2days workshop in Berlin, there will be Sound Harmonization guided by Tivitavi Roberto Papini from 20:00 5th July.

And 7th, 8th July, 2014 "Sounds of the body, Signs of the heart"
Butoh, Sensitive Dance & Voice workshop by Kea Tonetti, voice and live music by Tivitavi Roberto Papini

Re‐awaken your dance and liberate your voice in an authentic manner, allowing their truth to manifest in the moment, from the body, from the soul and from the heart. The encounter between voice and butoh dance is something that is both highly surreal and expressive, which can help you to surpass the limits of what you know, transporting you to a new world of self-­‐understanding and of rebirth, where emotions can no longer be codified, blending into each other, as do forms and sounds. In this oneiric and parallel world, everything is possible: the Spirits of Nature materialize and speak -­‐ emotions and internal pulsations take form and sing. Practices from Sensitive dance®, Hara yoga and Butoh allow us to consciously interact with our body and our breath, nurturing our own sense of grounding to operate on the plane of terrestrial energy, re-­‐awakening a dance of sensations. Opening our perception of space and time, we nourish our presence in the moment, allowing the dance and the voice to manifest from the silent emptyness that permeates everything, thus giving form to the invisible. Evoking internal images and landscapes, we will re-­‐awaken emotions, pulsations and antique memories; incorporating the energies of Nature, we give them voice, and dancing the emotions, we allow them to sing. Opening ourselves to active listening and feeling, we allow ourselves to dance and sing, living entirely in the moment, so that forms and sounds may become the expression of our soul.
