To live we need energy.
Radiant energy from the sun is the source of the power of the earth’s life activities.
We eat foods, which we digest and decompose into energy inside the body, for activities like moving, working, and communicating with people/society. We spread our energy and simultaneously receive energy from outside. With heat/ energy we move and are moved. Can we become conscious of energy/ heat transmission processes such as conduction, convection, radiation or evaporation between performers and spectators? And can we actively exert this in everyday life? What would be the effect?
6 day intensive experience of physical work and improvisation tools, based on performative perspectives and butoh techniques. Around the theme of continuous presence and energy exchange, the workshop aims to give a taste of Yuko Kaseki’s approach to constructing improvisation and generating power of expression.
Fee: 360 Euro (320 euro paid by June 16)
