Body Weather workshop with Frank van de Ven (BW Amsterdam)

From touch and manipulation to performance and dance.

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.

The term & philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early 1980s 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.

Besides a thorough introduction to Body Weather work, this 6 day Auckland workshop will focus on touch. Touch has always been a key element in the survey of the dancing body. Touch makes us aware of the world inside and outside of us. To touch is to be touched. We will explore touch and the possible ways it can lead to dance. Work in the studio will be alternated by hikes and trips through the surrounding landscape.

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 performance artists of various backgrounds.
