Our bodies are not just flesh and blood. They are also institutions with cultures and stories. Our bodies influence how we move, how we think and how we create.
Both Kunqu and Javanese Dance carry with them hundreds of years of history. Their bodies are treasures , shaping the development of various traditional arts in Southeast Asia and Asia.
How are these traditional body vocabularies related to the institutions of the day? How is it related to the theatre of today? How can practitioners learn the treasures of yesterday and turn it into the treasures of today?
In this masterclass, participants will expect a 5-day intensive cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary physical workshop, learning the forms of history, and bridging it into the practice of today, and the future.
Participants will have the opportunity to showcase their discoveries to an audience, on the last day of the workshop.
