Embodying Critical Situation:
In this workshop, we are exploring the fundamentals of Indian Martial Arts (Kalari Payattu) principles through movement art practice focused on Improvisation and composition. We work on fundamentals like breath, speed and energy, involving the core structure of the body influenced by different methods of kalari payattu and other martial arts combined,

The practice is about identifying our way of expressing in certain situations like a moment of confrontation, dealing, accepting and mainly reacting. Inventing a score to create an incident and let the body react and mind follows and another way around. Using senses to provoke emotions created through incidents. Identifying the space filled with accumulated information through movement and research.

We experience reaction through various tasks and scores, to disengage mind from body and observing the reaction of the body, recollecting or replaying the incident and to identify it with a new perspective, the new is nothing but a combination of various memories played in different time and space which is changing and passing every moment. Bringing feeling and letting the body occupy and transfer, letting it pass in order to give space for the next incident. Running from incident to incident, going through the different emotional state, identifying the presence and absence, and identifying the state of mind and body through these different emotional state.
