Body Weather Training and Performance Workshop
Berlin 21-25 May 2012
with Frank van de Ven (BW Amsterdam)

Part A 10.00 - 13.30 Body Weather training
Body Weather is a comprehensive training and performance practice that investigates the
intersections of bodies and their environments. Bodies are not conceived as fixed and separate
entities but are - just like the weather - constantly changing through an infinite and complex system
of processes occurring in- and outside of these bodies. As a training, Body Weather is of relevance
to anyone interested in exploring the body and physical presence and this workshop is suited to
dance, theatre and movement practitioners and artists of various backgrounds.
The term & philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early 1980's by dancer Min
Tanaka and further developed by Laboratories worldwide. Frank van de Ven was a member of
Tanaka’s Maijuku Performance Company in Japan, from 1983-1991. With Katerina Bakatsaki he
leads Body Weather Amsterdam, a platform for training and performance. For more info on

Part B 14.00 -17.00 Solo Performance Development

| resonance | relating to sound, space and time
improvisation workshop for dance artists

Workshop: 3 hrs.  :::: 15:00 -18:00

| resonance | is based on practices that enable heightened states of sensory perception. The workshop shares methods for reverberating mindfully with other dancers during duet and ensemble improvisation. We will focus on listening, sensing, and acting from sound, movement, and memory impulses. We will explore expansions and contractions of energy and sound in our bodies and in the space. We will trace the pathways that movement material takes between outside and inside: input - filtering - output - sending. Rather than reacting to other bodies, we will cultivate a stance that allows us to observe, consider, and respond with as much of our selves as possible.
The group will explore questions like: How do we transmit messages that perpetuate in different forms through the space instead of dying out? How do we translate or morph messages into different media like writing, drawing, or assessing? How can we use vibration, reflection, sounding, panning, resounding, writing, and remembering to create a resonating body?

Workshop is free.
donations are greatly appreciated.

| resonance | movement + sound

Performance: 1 hr ::::  19:00

| resonance | is a structured improvisation that involves participants from workshop and invited sound artists responding to and influencing movement + sound in various groupings and patterns. Sound artists will use sine waves, and panning and phasing techniques, to move sound in space creating a physical sonic environment. The movement artists will respond to sound, and each other, and will in return influence the sound, perpetuating the cycle.

Performance is free.
donations are greatly appreciated.
