Body as a Material

This course conducted by Ima Iduozee explores the different layers and structures of the body. Course activities aim to discover unfamiliar yet precise bodily states. The short course is an introduction to the methods that Iduozee uses in his choreographic work, such as body alienation and trained observation. The themes are approached through improvisation and controlled motion series. The aim of the course is to provide tools for the exploration of new bodily techniques and full physical expression.

The course is instructed in Finnish and English.
