Three radical experimenters, dancers and choreographers, Valentin Tszin (Moscow), Sung Kuk Kang (Seoul) and Yuko Kaseki (Tokyo/Berlin) will make a collaborative workshop for the first time in Berlin.
These artists are different in physicality, history, geographical location and nationalities. They will share their own methodology of movement, influenced by Butoh, physical theatre, contemporary dance, performance art and improvisation. And there will appear a brand-new form through blending their ideas in this special workshop.
Valentin Tszin will focus on his "Theatre of Radical Levels" method which is based on the distinct division into five elements: orthodox, relative, illusion, iteration and naivety. In contiguity of these five elements of natural artistry there occurs a positive conflict which lets out the source of radicalism of one's "levels".
Sung Kuk Kang shows his special existence, movement and dramaturgy. Participants will be encouraged to discover their original dance.
Yuko Kaseki's basic training on Butoh method, Noguchi Taiso, Tai Chi Dao-in aims to open awareness of inner and outer world and to realize permeable body. Playful and original movement will be encountered through elemental improvisations with time and spaces.
Workshop presentation will be shown on the last day.
July 17-18, 12-18 h + July 19-20, 14-20 h
Fee: 240 euro (220 euro if paid until June 20)
