Kurs with Tsuki

This class we will be about developing the relationship between the physical and the invisible within the dancer’s body. In the spirit of contemporary butoh, as each person’s body is unique, their way of dancing needs to be unique as well, dancers are encouraged to develop their own method. Therefore the class is thought as a supportive framework in which they can do this, and is open to everybody regardless of their experience. Guidance through movement pathways and qualities will be offered, introducing some elements of imagery and embodiment. We will also nurture awareness through partner work, exercising both exploration and observation, fine sensations and presence. And there will also be each class a longer improvisation to go deeper into the dance work of butoh.


Tsuki trained in classical ballet from age five, graduating from Australian Ballet School in 2008. She has danced with companies and freelance projects in Israel, Melbourne and Berlin from 2009 - 2016. She is now a Ballet and Ashtanga Yoga Teacher, and Performance Artist based in Berlin. She teaches her practice of Ashtanga Moon Yoga in her flat, with community groups, and live streams, and performs solo and collaborative performance projects influenced by her multidisciplinary training. She has performed her collaborative work in Berlins most infamous night clubs and queer parties, including; Tresor, KitKat Club, Suicide Cirucus, Night Embassy, Maze Club, Trash Era at Wilde Renate, KaKe Club, as well as Ackerstadt Palast Theatre with Amalgam Solo Festival. She has performed two seasons of 'Body Play' with Chaim Gebber Open Scene at Pfefferberg Theater and was guest performing artist for 'Sayonara Nukes Berlin' annual protest event at Oranienburger Tor. Ballet and Yoga give her and her students rigor and repetition, allowing for a deeper personal research of contemporary dance practice. Her recent performance work in Berlin has been influenced by her foundational teachers in Butoh and Physical Theatre; Tony Yap and Yumi Umiumare in Melbourne, Australia; Valentn Tszin and Yuko Kaseki in Berlin, Germany. Butoh uses the body itself as a resource for new material and movement research, finding the dance within, movement in stillness. It is this very contrast with Ballet and Yoga, which uses specific forms and movements, which inspires a physical dialogue between her practices. She is presently in artist residence at Scope Berlin in Moabit. There she has presented 'I'm Your Bitch' in November 2019 and is currently organizing 'EnterOne I All Will Be Revealed...' to be shared over May/June 2020.
