ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This is a class based on Noguchi Taiso and Butoh.

In this class, we do not convey any fixed form or technique, but the principles that form the basis of movement (spiral, wave, gravity, emotion, etc.) as well as imagination. We will focus on everyday movements like standing and walking, as well as on emotional forms of expression. We will establish a basis that will enable us to exchange conventional patterns of movement for fresh approaches that will help us to move more easily. 

We'll start each day with Noguchi Taiso exercises to bring the body to “zero form”, understanding the structure of our bodies, and becoming the structure of our bodies. We'll proceed to practice Butoh with the introduction of imagery, improvisation, structured improvisation, etc..

This workshop aims to help rethink current movement patterns, find and embody new movement patterns and movement styles, become movements, reevaluate what dance is, and its relationship with life, and to search and maybe find our own individual “voice” and “practice”. No prior experience in “dance” is needed; only curiosity. It will not be physically intense but rather based on finding our own limits (for professional dancers, this is an invitation to reevaluate what is intense or not). This workshop includes physical practice and theory.


ABOUT THE ARTIST

Born in Tehran, Mohammadreza Akrami is a dance artist based in Montreal. His eagerness toward episteme leads him to study Physics, Dramatic literature and practicing martial arts such as Wing Chun, Escrima and Chi Qong. His experience in performance art spans from choreographing, dancing, acting, singing, and to pure performances. He has worked on butoh, flying low, passing through, and rituals and its music as roots of performance art.
