TANK 2017 – image • dance • think research lab



A manual of images from BODYWEATHER
The University of Sydney

led by Frank van de Ven & Tess de Quincey

Explore how images arise in and around us, and how the body can be danced by these images and by the imagination!

We’re delighted to announce this new masterclass in a series that has developed over previous exciting laboratories 2011-2015 in Sydney and Melbourne. It is a very special opportunity to work with leading BodyWeather practitioners Frank van de Ven (Amsterdam) and Tess de Quincey (Sydney), who share the legacy of their training within MAI-JUKU, Min Tananka’s performance group in Japan.

Through the construction of precise and varied environments, infinite layers of relationship are explored through the body and the mind, enabling physics to meet poetry.

Besides a rigorous introduction to this method of practice and a rich variety of images, the workshop will encourage the development of images by each participant for use in contemporary performance.

The process will culminate in a public symposium which will highlight links between performance practice and theory.
