Event description

Description

Balance, Wave, Spiral and Soften
workshop with Shinichi Iova-Koga

April 19, 20, 21
Western Sky Studio, Berkeley

Friday, April 19, 4pm-8pm: Balance (on and off its edge)
Saturday, April 20, 10am-1pm: Wave (slow becomes smooth, smooth becomes fast)
Saturday, April 20, 2pm-5pm: Spiral (multiple connections within form)
Sunday, April 21, 1pm-6pm: Soften (the dynamics of release)

Each of the four sessions focuses on a particular quality of motion. We will explore the structural and energetic components of these qualities in detail. Improvisational scores will stem from the physical research.

EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT UNTIL MARCH 19

The winner of 5 San Francisco “Izzie” awards, inkBoat has performed throughout North America, Europe, South Korea and Japan.
