Takeya’s basic method attempts to awake one’s own nature and thus trace its origins. The basic training consists of (re)connecting yourself and outer world through her “Core Breathing Technique”. It is to deepen one’s perceptive ability in sensing an invisible inner energy in the body. In addition, the participants are going to explore their own presence, articulation, releasing and tensing, offensiveness and defensiveness, reaction and action, instant selection and decision, timing, personal history, sharing something, face, attitude, gesture, words and voice.

This attempt requires a great deal of imagination to visualize the fantasy and the human body as a tool ‘to fly’. Participants learn how to handle the body that can fly. We fly in a loop of mechanized body in geometric movements. We fly by imitating a certain kind of bird etc. We make each one’s particular case on many levels with the desire to achieve impossible abilities – Let’s fly.

Special Class

Schrei X8 – The Vocalic Body » Intermediate
Scheduled for autumn 2023. Dates will be announced in due course.

This workshop aims to build up own expression resources by learning Takeya’s unique method of unification of voice and body using her circular breathing technique, and also to build up instrumentalisation of the emotions in the body, leading to the creation of own compositions of vocalic screams: It forces on the activation of one’s own powers and development of primal motives, which are transformed into each one’s own performance, while imitating the barks, howls and roars of nature’s creatures and striving for variations of the voice work of charismatic artists such as Yoko Ono, Diamanda Galas, Marina Abramović etc…
