Yuko Kaseki is director, choreographer, Butoh dancer, performance artist, improviser and teacher, based in Berlin.
The workshop’s emphasis is to develop original movement through body awareness, sensitivity, and also discover hidden dynamic energy. Warm up with various physical training methods such as Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi Dao-yin, Butoh methodology, for permeability and awakening deeper layers of motion/emotion of the body. Direct physical connection with others and spaces will stimulate and enhance physical imagination and help accumulate a vocabulary of movement. Finding the core of our body (Tanden), which is our energy source, listening honestly to the variants of inner and develop this in relation to the outer would will be an ongoing focuspoint. Participants are encouraged to discover authentic movement of own Self from a deeper sense, through playful Improvisation with imagination of elements, essence of quality, gravity, scale, dimension, directionality... searching balance between both extremes of tense and release, silence and chaos, strong existence with disappearance...
Singing: “Expiration of air with the vocal cords drawn close so as to vibrate audibly”
Voice is a manifestation of energy that can be heard and perceived by touch through its vibration even by deaf people.
I will be working with voice, and sound as a way to awaken the senses, helping discovering new realm of communication. The simple voice exercises will encourage people to connect deeply with themselves on a physical level through the sensation of the vibration they create, discovering new ways to interact with their surroundings and other people, in an open, relaxed and confident manner.
The individual training of voice and body, combining the various elements of our research process will finally resonate and incorporate the internal and external experiences into the sounding body.
Practical activities of play and observation, improvisation and feedback with each other but also self-reflective awareness training will enhance and expand our understanding of the individual and collective body. Tools like repetition, reduced simplicity, erosion and investigation, erasing improvisation and coming back to original questions, isolation and bricolage of new material will help us to inherit the energy of movement and find back to the fundamental and grounded state of being.
Exploring the relationship of opposites like body silence / inside screaming, frantic movement / calm breath, shifitng between habitual expression and core resonance we aim to reveal an original self identity. Continuing the process of exposing this authenticity through performative methods we will try to construct a collective and universal identitiy in space, to create new performative form the magic moments of quotidian reality in the realm of the sacred secular.
