PLACE: Foro de Arte y Cultura. Guadalajara, Jalisco
DURATION: 25 h
MANIPULATIONS: = Initiated by Min Tanaka and his colleagues, Manipulations are a principal thread in Body Weather training and research and focus partnered and applied stretching, breathing, alignment, relaxation and how to observe and dialogue between bodies. The core series of seven steps that constitute the original manipulations will be introduced, transmitted and discussed, with collective reflection on new directions and applications.
PROTEAN PROGRESSION: = A protean progression of movements across the floor will develop kinesthetic, motor and sensorial awareness, scale and rhythm studies. These layered torrents will work individually and collectively to unfamiliarize our bodies and recognize them as dynamic, transformative environments, each body observed and welcomed as a total phenomenon in delicious corruption. Building from Body Weather MB training with Sherwood’s specific attention to rhythm, dis/coordination, un-mastery and rapport with the floor, this training asks that we bring our curiosity, our inquisitive body, and prepare to sweat.
