HISAKO HORIKAWA DANCE WORKSHOP
---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.
