General description of the workshop:
100,000 years ago, when Homo sapiens emerged on this planet, the first human art emerged in the dark cave, where eyes cannot see. What they were seeing with the eyes of the body-mind is the depth of our unconscious. Times change, but this must be a fundamental principle of human art. Our everyday life passes, eating, working, or dancing, within a limited cage, burying rich nature within us. educations, traditions, or even learning dance could mold various forms of cages. Free improvisation could also end up struggling in the same cage.
But when we observe forests carefully, so many varieties of forms and qualities of plants, flowers, stones, winds, and sounds astonish us.
This workshop is an invitation for diving into the unknown forest of our body-mind, discovering unlimited movements and qualities within us, and transforming the personal journey into universal poems.
POTSU POTSU… GASA GASA… SARA SARA…. GUNYO GUNYO…. PICHU PICHU….
All sounds have their own quality and texture. Different humidity, rough or smooth, thin or bold, expanding or shrinking… And the same is true for our body and mind.
In this module we will explore the universe of different sounds. Perceiving sounds not only with ears but with skins and whole body. Not only listening but touching them, embodying their qualities and accordingly unlocking different qualities in the mind.
As a violinist plays different notes, body and mind becomes limitless instruments of the sky and the earth.
