HKICF 2019: GAVIN WEBBER - MASTER WORKSHOP: BEYOND GONE
This is a workshop about why we move and how we connect. It will focus on internal states that drive action with the proposal that through movement we transcend our own self-perception and judgement, freeing the body and the mind.
In the workshop we will be working on the origin of the dancing body beyond aesthetics. What motivates us (and by that I mean all of us, not just dancers) to move? Where does the desire come from and how is it communicated?
During the choreographic and performance workshop, we will traverse many movement and theatre forms and amalgamate many techniques, including Chi Gong, contemporary dance, floor work, and improvisation, searching for an ‘inner state’ that allows us to redefine how we communicate our presence as performers and in turn examines how we define ourselves in our lives.
