BODYWEATHER is a broadbased training that proposes a practical strategy to the mind and to the body. It is not just for ‘professional dancers’ or ‘performance practitioners’ alone but is an open investigation that can be relevant for anyone interested in exploring the body.
The term and philosophical basis for BODYWEATHER was founded by butoh dancer Min Tanaka and his MAI-JUKU performance group, Japan. Drawing from both eastern and western dance, sports training, martial arts and theatre practice, it a ground training that develops a conscious relation devoid of any specific aesthetic.
As a former dancer with Mai-Juku 1985-91, Tess de Quincey introduced the BODYWEATHER philosophy and methodology into Australia in 1989. BODYWEATHER is the basis of her practice as a performer and choreographer.
