'Body Meets Imagination'
The term & philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early 1980’s by dancer Min Tanaka and further developed by Laboratories worldwide. Frank van de Ven was a member of
Tanaka’s Maijuku Performance Company in Japan, from 1983-1991.
Body Weather is a comprehensive approach to training and performance that investigates the intersections of bodies and their environments. Bodies are conceived not as fixed and separate entities but as constantly changing - just like the weather.
As a training, Body Weather is of relevance to anyone interested in exploring the body and physical presence and this workshop is suited to dance, theatre & movement practitioners and artists of varied backgrounds.
In the afternoons we will focus on the nature and function of ‘images’ and their embodiment. Frank will share and explore some of the legacy of images that were an integral part of his Body Weather training and performances within the Maijuku performance group in Japan as well as encouraging the development of individual images generated by participants for use in contemporary performance.
