Brief Workshop Content Description
Propelled by the quest to find fluidity in movement, this workshop provides a space for participants to enhance their sensitivity with naname choreography. In this session, we will search for full body awareness and connection between ourselves and the taiko by exploring in depth body mechanics and breaking down techniques to generate a rich sound while moving around the taiko. Through all this, we will enhance our vocabularies and tune into our natural flow to find full dynamic expression within naname choreography.
