As part of this international exchange with BODYWEATHER AMSTERDAM, dancers, artists, artist-academics and academics invite you to participate in an afternoon that explores the outcomes of a 5-day laboratory and masterclass about the body danced by images. Besides physical demonstrations, discussions and talks there will be a selection of short performances, all providing insight into processes underlying image making. So… join us, join us, join us as we unfold experiences together. Frank and Tess share and explore the legacy of images that were an integral part of their BodyWeather training and performances within Min Tanaka’s MAI-JUKU performance group in Japan from 1984 until 1991. They will aslo examine how this relates to contemporary dance and performance practice. The lab also aims to develop a new format for exchange between interdisciplinary practitioners, writers and thinkers, with the latter effectively ‘embedded’ or integrated within the image practice and research.
