Lullaby

If you are afraid of something or you are not sure
but you want to go further
do not worry, do not be afraid,
I am here, I am watching and listening to you.
To open the door, you need the warm eyes
of each other and the courage for your body.

WORKSHOPS 2017

HISAKO HORIKAWA DANCE WORKSHOP
BODY WEATHER

---about body sensation

inner and outer

the body in between the space---


Are we living with body?
The body is not one.
Many parts are alive and organizing each other at the same time. The body can suggest us something where we will go.
We strain our ear into the body, into the object, into the air...
Listen, feel and receive the motivation of the body and trust them.
Before moving, the sensation is there. We are a part of the nature and a part of the world. We are in between.

This year we will do the workshop at Piñuecar again. We can continue for 8 days. I hope that we can work deeper more and find something new. Please enjoy the process.
Since 2012, this workshop in Madrid went to outside of Madrid in the nature. Every time how we can meet the nature and land, each time it was really adventurous. The workshop itself, we are very slow way to develop. But how we can spend time together and how we found each other body and space, it is very nice to see and very important process. Half of the people come back and continue every year. And that made the space to work very warm. And slowly the body start to change. Maybe this is without knowing. We can not forget we are a part of nature, we can not control even our body too. You will re-meet your own body through the other people's eyes and with communication. H. H.

TALLERES 2017

TALLER DE DANZA BODY WEATHER
CON HISAKO HORIKAWA
---sobre la sensación del cuerpo
dentro y fuera
y el cuerpo en el espacio---

¿Vivimos con el cuerpo?
El cuerpo no es solo uno.
Hay muchas partes que están vivas y se organizan entre ellas.
El cuerpo nos puede sugerir a dónde nos llevará.
Aguzamos el oído hacia el interior del cuerpo, el interior del objeto,
el interior del aire...
Escucha, siente y recibe la motivación del cuerpo y confía.
Antes del movimiento está la sensación.
Somos parte de la naturaleza y parte del mundo.
Estamos en el medio.

Este año volveremos a hacer el taller en Piñuecar durante ocho días. Espero que podamos trabajar más profundamente y encontrar algo nuevo. Quiero que disfrutéis del proceso.
Desde el año 2012, llevamos haciendo los talleres en Madrid y en la naturaleza. Cada vez es una verdadera aventura la forma en la que nos encontramos con la naturaleza y con la tierra. El propio taller se desarrolla de forma muy lenta. Pero es muy bonito observar cómo pasamos tiempo juntos y cómo nos encontramos con el cuerpo del otro y con el espacio. Es un proceso muy importante. La mitad del grupo vuelve cada año. Y eso hace que el espacio de trabajo sea muy cálido. Y, poco a poco, el cuerpo empieza a cambiar. Quizá no nos demos cuenta. No podemos olvidar que somos parte de la naturaleza, no podemos ni siquiera controlar nuestro cuerpo. Nos reencontraremos con nuestro propio cuerpo a través de la mirada de los otros y a través de la comunicación entre nosotros. H. H.

Diario de Ávila - entrevista

Diario de Ávila newspaper interview to Hisako Horikawa

What have you found in Hoyocasero that there is not in somewhere else? And how did you get to know Hoyocasero?

I heard about Hoyocasero from Maria Serna who is organized the workshop 3 years ago. Since I came to Madrid for the workshop, I would like to do the workshop in the nature. So she met Carlos to know Hoyocasero and she went there. So anyway we say we try to do that.
Then we went there for the workshop 3 years ago, it was so beautiful stone mountain we all are attracted by that. And also village was so beautiful, we can see the old life.
In Japan I was also living and farming for 13 years in the small village. There I learn a lot from the nature there and from the village people.
And this is alive for the dance still.
It is important to feel the nature and life for the dance.

How did the village people received you?

I do not know exactly how people feel our way. But something I feel they are also enjoy to see us in the village, I hope.
But for example last year people came to us to invited to eat. Also we enjoy with them in a bar together to talk.

Do you think the people know their bodies? Do they live in harmony with their bodies? Do they know their possibilities?

The body is also one of nature, body is also like the weather, everyday change. So everybody has this body. The body itself is alive and organizing by themselves. We listen this body how we can go.
We have to accept the body and we will think, start from the body.
I want to understand something with my body, not just with my brain.

What is Body Weather?

Everybody has a body, but we still do not know many things about the body. But the life in the village old way of life is naturally people know something about the body, I believe.
They know the nature, they had many sensations with nature with their body, more than city people.
That is very important to think about future for our life. We sould really go back or take again real nature with our life to use the body.

How would you define your dance?

My dance is improvised with the space.
I got some thing inspiration from the space or place, then I will think about how I can dance together in there and also with people.

Is your dance different depending on the place you dance?

Of course it is all different depend on the place, costume and music too.
But big theme will be the same, we are always in between something. We are a part of nature, part of world.
We are alive here.

What sensations do you have when you dance in Hoyocasero?

Through the stone and through the leaves, through the road, through the sky, through the mountain I can feel the memory of the people life.
Not only in Hoyocasero, like our common life memory fron the old days.

Can you explain a little bit about your performance this year?

Last year I danced solo, because I wanted to say thanks for the village people how we can work there beautiful.
Through the performance I feel people in Hoyocasero more close to me. People's feeling came into my body.
So after the performance I feel that I should do something together with workshop members, so then the workshop members and village people will be good meeting together more.
Maybe strange movement will happen, and sometimes not so understandable, but it is all right, please just feel it. Then you can enjoy something.
We are all standing under the sky on the earth.
