After a first laboratory session last fall at Workspacebrussels led by Paris based BMC practitioner Tamara Milla Vigo, this second laboratory will again depart from Body Mind Centering techniques as a way to explore the body and to research movement. Tamara will lead the first 4 days of the workshop, starting from the simplest structure – the cell – and leading to more complex organs and tissues. Anatomical drawings, partnering and group exercises, as well as guided individual working sessions will all be used as tools to explore the complexity of the body. This time around we will have a special focus on the voice as a way to access and activate the different organs and tissues.
During the second week, we will continue working with the voice more technically: singer Stine Janvin Motland from Norway will give vocal sessions in the mornings and we will use the afternoons to continue working on the material and approaches explored during the first week. Rather than staying at a purely research level, the workshop will shift from internal to external, using some time each day to test the performativity of the material being explored. To this end we will work with audio based scores, dictated improvisations and approaches to setting phrase material. Part of a creation process for a new project in 2014, the goal of the workshop is to look at ways of composing both musically and choreographically starting from the structures of the body itself.
