Make Visible with Moeno Wakamatsu
June 10-12, 10am-2pm, $140

 

This LUDUS Lab strips down dance to the very basic essentials. What is the dance when one removes everything that is unnecessary? Often dancers perform to show what they "do" or to express their ideas/concepts/feelings. Take those away, then they are left empty and exposed: this is the place we begin. If one dares to stand naked and open to the world, to the audience, to one's own self, then the body, the consciousness, the audience, and the environment all become as one single phenomenon. As one phenomenon, the body will begin "to be moved" without one's own will, as if by some other forces. An unknown will becomes visible. This lab introduces concrete physical approach towards this way of dancing, through various physical, sensory, imagery exercises and guidance.
