W-12 / Seki Method
In the frame of Winter Tanz 2016/17
Coming from the irrational mind to the intuitive.
An important content of this workshop is the work with body memory. If we have confidence in our bodies and take the power of imagination, we can make the subconscious available for our dance, movement and our own expression. The irrational will help the body to unexpected movements, the irrational is fast and surprising. It's like a leap in the dark. We practice to be working at the moment to find out the possibilities of the moment and to explore the dimensions of space. The Seki Method works with the TanDen, centre of the body, and origin of energy and movement. It is based on simple essential principles of nature and physics and its transformation into the dancing body.
