“Misunderstandable Dance”
by Saori Hala

Outline: This WS is a part of the process of Saori’s project [The choreography for Tele-beings].
During the entire WS, she would only share vocal instruction that I would give you. The instruction is about 10 min. Please follow the instruction very precisely but with your own interpretation. No matter how different each movement is. Misunderstanding is welcome.

She would repeat the 10 min vocal instruction for 3 times to have you to choreograph instantly.
At the end of the WS, we are going to dance all together with a blind unison.

This try-out was inspired by Japanese body education.
In Japan, there’s a cultural custom of radio exercises. Instructions for exercises are broadcast on the radio and listeners follow along. There are also recordings which allow listeners to do the exercises at any time or place. It’s already composed and choreographed.

As a Japanese person, doing radio exercises brings back fond memories from childhood. However, it’s obvious there was a political consideration when it was developed in the 1950s. The historical context of unison and socialism is also well known in the dance community.

In this WS, she would like to share the experience of how we could be open to interpreting the environment with the distractions by using an existing format.

20 places are available for dancers and non-dancers, until completed

Duration: 60 minutes

Requirements: No sound recording.
