Description: ‘Strong postures, breathing techniques and flowing asana sequences will be used as a starting point to prepare the body and mind for structured improvisations.
Participants will be guided through Kathinka’s choreographic process that examines the role of the choreographer in improvisation through the incorporation of verbal and non-verbal instructions that inform the overall structure and content of the work. The choreographer becomes an active participant within the performance event – the ‘visible choreographer’.
