more than naked In this workshop we will engage in nudity, being naked and becoming naked on stage. Nudity not as provocation but as a necessity for the physical research. What kind of movement material is possible with the naked body, compared to the dressed body? Which kind of vehemency and fragility are generated by a naked body? Which kind of illustration, exposition and exhibition is produced? We will work with the mass of the body, with flesh, skin and the bone structure. The flesh will be moved in different ways, the bone structure implodes and explodes, the skin surfaces transpose. It is a search for dance originating from the material "body". We restage the naked body without losing the tangible of nudity. "Nudity often is a tool for my artistic work. I will work very physically with the participants, very devoted and precisely. I will introduce my approaches, such as seeing skin as another layer underneath the clothes or my occupation with the baroque era and its urge for opulence and poses as impulses for movement material."
