Fusioni Improv.Fest 2018 > workshop with Yoshiko Chuma
Shifting Concepts: from Poem to Body

Where: Studio Blu, Via Cadorna 18, Sesto Fiorentino (FI), Italy

When: 22, 23 and 24 June 2018

Yoshiko Chuma, Artistic Director of the award winning company The School of Hard Knocks (New York City), will guide participants in a 3-day workshop about the transformation of conceptual ideas into physical movement vocabulary. The investigation process of transformation from intellectual concepts to physical movements will be an exercise for both the brain and the body. During the 3 days, the participants will work with Ms Chuma, in a combination of demonstration and participatory exercises.
Chuma will also present action exercises with props. We will use our own words, images and experiences to create movement.
Dance is a monologue, by using the activities of flow and resistance we may create dance that delivers a delicate and powerful message. Poets speak a kind of monologue composed of abstract dance movements. Dance is poem. The 3 day workshop will end with a small private presentation with the participants.Note from Yoshiko: “Through adoration and frustration, political and non political subject matter, strengths and weaknesses, we will come together to facilitate this workshop. We will share the accumulation of the work. We will move a lot. We will talk a lot. We will eat a lot.”
