Physical work: 

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...

Voice work:

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.

Collective work:

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.

Realm of the Sacred Secular 
with Yuko Kaseki and Valerie Renay              6 day Butoh + Voice Performance Workshop
June 5 – 10 at 12-17h
(Workshop Presentation on June 10 at 20h)
Studio 2 / Kunstquartier Bethanien
Mariannenplatz. 2, 10997 Berlin
Fee: 350 Euro (320 Euro paid by May 20)
Registration/ Info:
Please send your motivation letter for application.
This Collaboration workshop with Butoh performer Yuko Kaseki and voice artist Valerie Renay is part of a wider research process of performative rebirth with focus on the relationship between body and voice in a primitive and fundamental way.

By digging into the personal history of our bodies we aim to awaken the genuine and authentic Self and find new expression of physical resonance. By vocalizing forms, sculptures, landscapes and ancestral realities, a sacred space of collective creation can be shaped, in which each individual explores their own identity.
The Exploration of physical and vocal performance as a ritual to re-enforce earthiness, life strength and feminine wisdom in relationship to nature and the urban jungle shapes the frame of a surreal journey from the body to the soul, evoking long forgotten emotions and pulsations.
First part of the Workshop will focus separately on the methods of movement and voice used by the two artists in their performance practice. Gradually the research will be guided to mix the tools and find a common ground and expression language, constructing the “sounding body” and setting the theme for a collective performance, presented at the end of the workshop.

This research format is open for all people who want to investigate and challenge their deeper self and who have curiosity, courage and desire to play with movement and performative expression.

For application we invite interested participants to formulate their personal research objectives and describe their core inquiry of the proposed themes in a motivation letter.

one step beyond the breathing eye
24th - 25th of March 2018
10 am - 6 pm
In the framework of the Educational Learning Program of the Studio : Ilka Theurich, we are glad to present the first of a series of practical workshops on performance art in Hannover
Applications are now accepted until March 15, 2018 - please use the contact formula on this blog.
...a practice-oriented workshop
...for fine artists, performance artists, dancers, singers & students
...and others (after consultation)
This workshop is based on the idea of the breathing eye and questions our interaction with space, time and interaction as a performance artist in complex situations. Yoga masters teach a relaxation and meditation technique, which refers to the idea of „breathing through the eyes". In this workshop, we do not immerse ourselves in the science of chakras, prana, and energy centres, but use the potential of this concept to explore our behaviour within a group performance.
To illustrate this, here a hypothetical question: How would our body react when we emerge temporarily from a tense, confusing and complex situation, to visualize breathing through the eyes? Undoubtedly, we would physically slow down and keep away from seemingly overwhelming emotions and external distractions. Our facial muscles would relax, our heart rate would slow down, and in general, we would "regroup" mental, physical, and emotional situational fragments. Our shaping thought would be able to return to the situation openly and with new approaches to the solution.
