M1 CONTACT Festival 2019 - Bones & Muscles Intensive by Miwa Okuno (Beginner/Intermediate)
In sculpture or illustration, there is often an inclination to begin from creating an outline of the skeleton of a body, before adding on the muscular expression, whether it is via the moulding of clay or sketching with a pencil.
Okuno has explored many genres of dance, but she finds the greatest freedom in using a visual arts approach in performance. In this sense, she is free from pursuing any particular method of movement. To her, the human body is largely divided into bones and muscles, and like a sculptor or an illustrator, she regards the body as a canvas on which she can work on a visual piece of art.
Through this 3-day workshop, Okuno will first heighten the participants’ awareness of their bones and muscles. Together with the participants, improvised movement using images and words will be explored through the separation of bones and muscles. This results in a disassembled body, which will be reassembled by the end of the workshop.
Participants are encouraged to attend all 3 days.
