b12 workshop in BERLIN / July 12-17, 2023
BODYTALK (6 day workshop)
VIM VIGOR : shannon gillen / jason cianciulli
we are interested in physical communication and find that our capacity for aliveness is heightened through interaction. for us, partnering is dialogue. it is happening to you. it is happening because of you. in this workshop we will dive into the physical implications of partnering, but also the character and world building inherent in tethering the self to everything else. solo, duet and theatrical material will be enlivened in a constellation of context, subtext, feelings, proximity, physics and timing. we will begin things each day through a combination of set material that requires adaptive and improvisational reaction. reading other people will become essential as we look for opportune moments to transfer energy, judge distances, find balance and ride trajectories through space. we will play with how we feel and what this means. we will figure out what is happening when we speak as we are moving with scripted and unscripted language. we will perform for one another in the messy wonder of workshop space where nothing is polished and spontaneity breeds surprise and delight. together we will build relationships with the personas we embody, the worlds we conjure, and the other bodies in our midst. we are in this together.
