tess and linda lrg

For the first time, FRANK VAN DE VEN and TESS DE QUINCEY will teach images from their MAI-JUKU legacy in this upcoming intensive workshop

SATURDAY 3 – SATURDAY 10 MARCH 2012

led by
visiting artist Frank van de Ven (Holland) and Tess de Quincey
at the REX CRAMPHORN STUDIO, THE UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY

This 8-day workshop will share and explore the heritage of images that were an integral part of BodyWeather training and performances within MAI-JUKU, Min Tanaka’s performance group in Japan. Both Frank and Tess were dancers with Mai-Juku from 1984 til 1991. This will be the time either artist will teach these images.

Images were a key choreographic method for the company. Through the construction of precise and varied environments, infinite layers of relationship were explored through the body and the mind, enabling physics to meet poetry. Besides a rigorous introduction to the images and methods of practice, the workshop will also encourage the development of individual images developed by participants for use in contemporary performance.

We plan to include a short performance by participants of the 8-day workshop as part of PLATFORM 4, an evening of performances to be presented at FRASERSTUDIOS on Saturday 10 March which will act as a culmination of this process.
