An intensive theatre-dance workshop with Dutch dancer

Frank van de Ven

Touch has always been a key element in the survey of the dancing body and this 2 day Prague studio workshop gives an overview of van de Ven¹s approach to dance. Touch makes us aware of the world inside and outside of us. To touch is to be touched. We will explore touch and the possible ways it can lead to dance.

„Body Weather is a comprehensive training and performance practice that investigates the intersections of bodies and their environments As a training, Body Weather is of relevance to anyone interested in exploring the body and physical presence and this workshop is suited to dance, theatre and movement practitioners and artists of various Backgrounds.“
Frank van de Ven

The term & philosophical basis for Body Weather was founded in the early 1980's by Butoh dancer Min Tanaka and further developed by Laboratoriem worldwide. Frank van de Ven was a member of Tanaka¹s Maijuku Performance Company in Japan, from 1983-1991. With Katerina Bakatsaki he leads Body Weather Amsterdam, a platform for training and performance. Frank van de Ven has been regulary working at Archa Theatre since 1996.
