“Air Ways”
by Pat Toh

Outline: This workshop draws attention to air as agency of movement. Participants will be guided to engage with the breath and to draw the interconnection between one’s internal space and the external environment. Working with deep listening and sensations of humming resonance, we will expand our sensory awareness of breath moving through the body and its intricate effects on the psyche. The movement and experience of the breath will be tracked and notated through drawing which will serve as artefacts to provide access to the agency of the researched atmosphere, where we can use it to reflect and deepen the inquiry to the dynamic interactions between outer environment on the inner worlds.

Duration: 70 minutes
Requirement: Paper and pen, a space where you can make some noise
*20 places are available for those who open to movers of all experience, until completed

“Moving out of the Body from History”
by Zhen Yang

The first part is the perception of body technology traces, through the perception of “slowly movements” imagination, we can awaken the link relationship between the inside and outside of the body and understand the trace and logic of body training. The second part is the recombination and expression of body history. Through the change of history and the experience of context, the traces left by the individual, I hope that participants will describe their experience in the way of guidance and dialogue, so as to produce effective dialogue. In the workshop of body performance, we can understand the relationship between body and senses step by step, so as to make structural expression.
