Method of Valentin Tszin is based on 4 components:
Work with the physical body.
Warm-up exercises (joints, muscles, skeleton); exercises to strengthen the body centre, feeling of the periphery and their interactions; strengthening and relaxation, balance.
Techniques: combination of taekwondo, butoh and rhythmics.
Work with the conscious body.
Exercises of refusal of actions. Research of body polyphony: numerous variants of behaviour in the same situation. Sensation of individual patterns. Biomechanics. Metronome.
Based on drama and acting theatre techniques and Meyerhold’s biomechanics.
Work with the bodies in a group.
Improvisation on a given topic. Research of boundaries of oneself and the other. Construction and deconstruction of hierarchy of bodies in space. Modelling simple and complex schemes “presence – perception”.
We will use the theory of contemporary philosophers and sociologists.
Work with composition and dramaturgy.
Theory about existing strategies of creation of a public action (performance). Depending on the course, we will develop solo and/or group actions.
Basic keys: Stanislavsky, Meyerhold, Artaud, Hijikata, Brecht
<-Valentin Tszin. Body Alienation->
"Alienation", so Valentin Tszin marks his artistic method of not only creation of a performance, but also the philosophical approach to understanding of oneself in the contemporary world and its discourses.
"Alien", it’s not a metaphor on a person who escaped from real civilization into non-real dimension of his art, on the contrary, it’s a meeting of a human being with a human being, in a situation of one-on-one in real time and space of action. Moreover, this is interaction of present and perceived in the dynamics of the birth of the third, the "Other", perhaps someone else in the future.
VALENTIN TSZIN is a Russian choreographer, dancer and actor. Founder of PoemaTheatre (St. Petersburg / Moscow) and Butoh Village (Moscow) and co-founder of Butoh Channel Berlin.
Valentin has presented his work nationally and internationally in the Ukraine, Germany, the Netherlands, Japan, Colombia, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, France, Scotland, Poland, Russia and Greece.
Since the beginning of 2015 Valentin lives in Berlin. Currently he is a student of a Master’s Program HZT-Berlin (UDK).
Being a part of the neo-liberal European context of contemporary philosophy and art, Valentin wonders again about the artist as an out-personal space of the world and his impact on the construction of the future post-machine world.
