Workshop : " Performance : le corps à l'oeuvre" - 17 au 25 juin 2017

Comment by LUCKY TRIMMER e.V. on February 8, 2017 at 10:34am


As part of LUCKY TRIMMER 25th edition, Simone Sistarelli will host the workshop POPPING FOR PARKINSON’S. In his classes Sistarelli uses the Popping dance technique as an innovative therapeutic tool towards improving the physical condition of people affected by Parkinson’s disease. The workshop, held on April 14th & 15th and free of charge, embraces our LUCKY motto Dance is for everyone! and showcases that everyone despite motion disorders can benefit from dancing.

Workshop Description
The key concept of the Popping for Parkinson’s classes is to use the Popping dance techniques as an innovative therapeutic tool towards improving the physical condition of people affected by Parkinson’s disease. Popping is a form of urban dance originating in California in the late 1970s, involving rhythmic contractions of the dancer's muscles to accent the beat.
It is the first time that Popping has been used as a tool for medical purposes and the feedback until now has been very positive: Participants not only see improvement in their natural movement capacities, but also gain confidence, feel less socially isolated and have fun. The workshop is open to people of all ages suffering from Parkinson, caretakers, family members, friends, dance practitioners/teachers or scientists who wish to gain insights into the Dance for Parkinson work.

About Simone Sistarelli
Italian born and currently living in London, Simone Sistarelli is a professional dancer, teacher, composer and accompanist for dance classes. He has a BA degree in Contemporary Dance from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and more than 10 years of experience in Hip Hop styles/techniques.

Studio 2/ Kunstquartier Bethanien
Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin

Fee: 230 euro (Payment until January 10 for 200 euro)

Origin of you is full of miracle.
Dig and cultivate body as frontier, to find out untouched field of emotions, memories and sensations...
Research each detail of body parts, to divide and reconnect.
Observe habit of movement in socialized function, and challenge for breaking through comfortable zone.
Disorder is a way of creativity, to find new visions of physical systems.

The workshop’s emphasis is develop original movement through body awareness, sensitivity, and also discover hidden dynamic energy.

Physical training is based on Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi Dao-yin and Butoh methodology. We practice for the whole body to be permeable and awake deeper layers of sensitivity. Find the center of our body (Tanden) which is our energy source. Listening honestly to the variants of inner and develop this in relation to the outer. 

The workshop offers the possibility to seek and experience in solo, duet and group improvisations with image, element, space, and relationship. Through intensity and reduction everyone can dive deeply into stillness/movement and translate it into individual manifestations. It is important for each person to find own unique body, physical reality and exposure of existence.

YUKO KASEKI (JP / DE) is director of company cokaseki, choreographer, Butoh dancer, performer, improviser and teacher, based in Berlin. She performs in solo and ensemble pieces and improvisations throughout Europe, Russia, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Uruguay, Argentine, Australia, India and the USA. These works are physical performances that incorporate Butoh, performance arts, object design, texts and soundscapes. International collaborations include inkBoat (SF), Tableau Stations (SF), CAVE (NY), Poema Theatre (Moscow), Salad Theater (Seoul) and more. She is also a key collaborator with mixed ability artists including Theater Thikwa (Berlin), Roland Walter (Berlin), Sung Kuk Kang (Seoul). Recent her works are physical statement reflected by social aspect and diverse lives.

The workshop offers an intensive frame of acting research in the areas of: intention, impulse and contact of action, qualities of movement, body and space relation, rhythm and break of rhythm, materials and resistance of movement, physical and emotional unbalance, archetypes and inner movements, line of emotions and map of relations between characters.
It investigates the flow state in the physical and emotional training of the actor, as well as the dramaturgy of movement and space.
Eventually, it aspires to provide the participants with the necessary tools of physical, emotional and character training that lead from physical awareness to actor’s presence.

Comment by Butoh on July 20, 2016 at 2:54pm


Butoh is an avant-garde form of dance theatre emerged in post-war Japan at a time of great change amid unrest and upheaval.

Natsu Nakajima is one of the oldest female Butoh dancers, Tatsumi Hijikata's first female dancer, a founding member of Butoh movement in Tokyo since the 1960s. In September she gives a series of workshops and butoh lectures in Berlin, Hague and Barcelona.


The workshop is open to all levels

Combining Hijikata’s choreographic methods with the improvisation intelligence taught by Kazuo Ohno, as well as the long choreographic and performance expertise of Nakajima herself, this workshop will prepare you for sensitive improvisation work, choreographic aptitude, and performance integrity.

Natsu Nakajima will teach also the background of Butoh conceptions and ideas.


1) Physical Exercise

- General exercise

- KATSUGEN activity (living vital force activity) by Noguchi Method

- body & vocalization

- playing game

2) Basic Butoh

- being nothing

- walking

3)Vocabulary (how to combine theatrical action & dancing movement)

- rhythm (time) and space

4) Various energy qualities

5) Transformation

6) Improvisation

7) Butoh-fu (Butoh Notation) from Hijikata’s work: how to use Butoh-fu and to combine with Hijikata's method and Kazuo Ohno's method.


Natsu Nakajima (b. 1943 Sakhalin, Japan) has been one of the most prominent figures in Butoh dance since its foundation in Tokyo in the 1960s, and one of its foremost pioneers abroad. Training under both Hijikata Tatsumi and Kazuo Ohno, Nakajima went on to establish her own dance company, Muteki-sha, in 1969, with whom she has been performing and choreographing internationally since the early 1980s.

In addition to her performance and choreographic work, Nakajima has over thirty years of experience as a teacher, and has been one of the forerunners of dance for the disabled in Japan.

ANIMAL INSTINCT – Progressive Movement Training

Movement Reaserch & Contact Improvisation Workshop –


Tanzfabrik Kreuzberg, Berlin, November 25-27, 2016

COST: Early bird 140€ (money transfer until October 14, 2016), thereafter 175€

REGISTRATION: For registration details and workshop questions please contact me by e-mail at




ANIMAL INSTINCT is an ongoing movement research. The core of this practice is to gain freedom in motion. By moving away from any ideology, style, form or aesthetic, we can reexamine our physical abilities with fresh eyes. The work refers to information from various movement disciplines (biomechanics, martial arts, somatic practices, contemporary dance & contact improvisation) and offers a wide spectrum of tools to study our body, to understand movement and communicate physically.

ANIMAL INSTINCT offers natural movement patterns to create rich duets based on improvisation. This workshop will help developing the bodily-kinesthetic intelligence to provide dancers with the agility and coordination to complete the movements successfully. We will work on partnering exercises to expand our personal movement vocabulary and our ability to physically communicate in a duet.

Dancing with Ghosts | Butoh Workshop with Vangeline and Yael Gaathon

18 - 19 June 2016, Berlin, Germany

Vangeline, founder of New York Butoh Institute, and Yael Gaathon, artistic director of the Butoh company Blue Cliff, give an intensive Butoh workshop and performance program “Dancing with Ghosts”
The workshop is open to all interested in exploration and movement, no prior experience in Butoh or dance is needed. 

Dancing with ghosts, playing with demons, singing with angels. Through a deep connection to ourselves we enter into a different realm, a world between worlds where the air changes and time disappears. We set off on a journey to find our own dance - our own ghosts, our own demons, our own angels. 

More info on event page

YAEL GAATHON, based in Aarhus Denmark, is the artistic director of the Butoh company Blue Cliff. She has been working with Butoh for over 20 years choreographing, performing and teaching. She views Butoh as an extreme form of sincerity, both in presence and in creation. It is the soul that dances, revealing itself and sharing intimacy and darkness, joy and weakness. 
Her style of butoh is also strongly influenced by Zen, which she has been practicing since 1997. Today Yael Gaathon choreographs, directs, performs and teaches Butoh and theater, working among others with National Theater School (DK) and the Danish Actors Association.

VANGELINE is an award-winning Butoh dancer, and choreographer. She is the Founder and Artistic Director of The VangelineTheater Inc, and the New York Butoh Institute. Vangeline Theater is an all-female dance company that is committed to moving butoh forward in the 21st century. Vangeline's work has been heralded in publications such as the New York Times (“captivating”), Los AngelesTimes, (“moves with the clockwork deliberation of a practiced Japanese Butoh artist”) and LA Weekly to name a few. Time OUT Chicago named Vangeline's, "one of the best Dance Visits of 2011." 
Vangeline is the founder of the 9-year running, award-winning program “Dream a Dream Project", which brings Butoh dance to incarcerated men and women at prisons across New York City. 

In her workshops Vangeline provides an opportunity to explore and move deeply into an embodied process, awakening lost parts of the human being, exploring all human qualities to transform our dance, our daily life and offer creative energy to the community.
Participants start a spiritual and energetic journey to express, heal and transform hidden aspects of themselves. The work incorporates Butoh, guided imagery, bio-energetics, core energetics, creative movement, improvisation, release techniques, elements of Noguchi gymnastics.
