21-23 juli (helg)

In this course we'll work with the sharing of physicality and explanation of ideas. The course will focus on how to connect ideas hidden in daily life to creation. How can we extend the idea into physicality? How is a seamlessly changing work of art created? Throughout the workshop days we'll research and expand the possibilities of the body from three perspectives: task, situation and purpose. 

How do you weave relationships in improvisation? We'll relieve the creative process and create inevitability in the movement and in the relationship. By doing so, the relationship is made visible and we'll find a story in it.

Kursledare: Takuya Fujisawa (JP) & Beda Åsbrink (SE)

Takuya Fujisawa is a contemporary movement artist born in Kumamoto City, based in Göteborg, Sweden since 2015. His current work spans Austria, Lithuania, Japan, and Sweden, connecting artists from different countries, sharing and refining various ideas, and bringing them back to their respective countries. Takuya's research on physical language and creativity is based on the theme of "connection / continuation". Takuya's creativity is based on experience as an immigrant. "The difficulty of explaining things to people, the moment I felt I could connect with someone without words, the fun and irony of conversations that work even when misunderstood". He incorporates a cultural anthropological perspective into his work, looking at things from a point of view that is different to the norm, rather than criticizing issues.

Beda Åsbrink co-founded the research platform "CRAFT" with Takuya 2020 and has participated in all projects since.
In research she uses movement to connect to herself, the world and people around her. She is fascinated by the human body and exploring its possibilities as well as using her real life experiences, stories and relationships into movement. "improvisation keeps growing on me. I love how honest it is and how it reveals so much in the dancer, especially when connecting to others"
She has a background in theatre and contemporary dance and she studied at Balettakademien in Gothenburg. Since graduation she has worked with choreographers such as Fernando Melo, Liza Penkova and Nicole Neidert. She won the most inspiring dancer's prize at the International Dance Week in Budapest in 2022.
