Embodiment and Presence // Haruko Nishimura
August 2 / 3:15-5:15pm
This class will explore what it means to be moved through deep listening and the guidance of sound and specific imagery. We let go of our individual will to manifest shapes and surrender to the richness of the present. My training is rooted in butoh dance, physical theater, improvisation and music. We will practice tuning into what the space, our body’s subtle energies and our physical memories can move through us. We will practice both playfulness as well as pushing ourselves to our edge.We will hone our embodiment and observation, bearing witness to each other’s discoveries. In addition to dancers and performers, creative and curious people from all walks of life are welcome including those with no movement experience.
