Further information about the workshops:
Daniel and Sakura consider the form and composition of our ongoing interactions with our environment as “danced composition”. This workshop proposes scores/structures for communicating your movement desires and images into a clear time and space.
Practical tools for researching your functional movement and reflexes provide a technical base. Specific exercises look at the details inside of ordinary movement: walking, standing, crawling, reaching, lying in stillness, seeing, rolling to our side, running, pushing, eating, drinking and so on.
The work can be applied directly to performance and is open to anyone who is interested in movement as a language for communication.
