I was also lucky enough to spend the week working with Isabel Lewis in her Ballistic Body workshop
This workshop attempts to imagine a field of training for the future dancer…
We will strive to find a new mode of performative expression, which is not clearly derivative of performance art, nor of theatre, nor of contemporary dance while perhaps touching aspects of all of these modes of performance.
Ballistic Body is an intervention in a space with people and ideas. This workshop is concerned with training the senses in a way that the body can be responsive in a performative situation. I try my best to steer away from proposing an aesthetic or physical ideal and try, rather, to emphasise attention to each individuals physical history with all of its influences: cultural, learned, accidental, or otherwise.
