BIMBY Body Un/Knowledge Weekend

BIMBY Body Un/Knowledge Weekend

BIMBY Body Un/Knowledge Weekend 2020 – February 7, 8, 9

 
A convergence of bodies telling stories of people, place and culture through movement, performance and artistic inquiry.

BIMBY Body Un/Knowledge Weekend is the nest for a festival. It is the initial coming together of locals and international artists and creatives who work through and with the body. Two days of performances, workshops, sharing of practice and conversations that make space for participating in dialogues and encounters around questions of what does it mean to perform the knowledge of our bodies in public and private space?
Whether or not people are dancers or movers their lives are expressed through their bodies and the bodies of knowledge they produce. Bodies carry narratives, tell stories, enact politics, enforce, open up, and change possibilities for ways of being together. We are making spaces for exchanges between people with different practices, her-stories and backgrounds.
This weekend looks to crack glimpses into the past and urgent future through our physical vehicles and to begin to imagine more and more spaces for exploration of bodied knowledges.

Practice Sharing with Noha Ramadan

An opportunity for a small number of participants (limited spaces) to come into the work space of artist, Noha Ramadan, to engage in her creative process. Express your interest by emailing: info@wemove.studio

Noha is an Egyptian-Australian choreographer based in Amsterdam. She approaches dance as somatic thinking and choreography as a set of relations and processes. Her work is underscored by a love for language, fiction and structural experimentation, testing the relationships between between meaning and its collapse.  In 2017 Noha co-founded Jacuzzi, a collective artist-run space in Amsterdam focused on dance and visual arts. She holds a Master of Choreography from DAS and has presented her work in various contexts in Europe and Australia including FLAM/Arti et Amicitiae, Frascati, nGbK, HAU, Carriage Works.

Facilitator

Talulah Gough 

 

Talulah grew up doing ballet in country towns all around NSW, and went on to obtain her BA in Dance in Sydney. She pursued performance opportunities while teaching hundreds of kids and adults all over Sydney for twelve years.

After the birth of her second son, Talulah developed severe arthritis and was unable to dance for several years. She healed herself, and slowly returned to dance through improvisation, finding a deeper joy in dance along the way. Now a mother of four, Talulah has refined and focused on what she truly loves in dance. She shares this love and joy in her daily improvisations @making_sacred, collaboration with other dancers, community dance installations and teaching adult contemporary classes.

We are super thrilled to have Tiana back in Mullumbimby sharing a series of 3 workshops that will deepen your connection to your body and your bones. 

 

These two hour classes will focus on alignment and movement research coming from specificity of boney connections as well as using imagination to find new physical pathways. We will warm ourselves up doing some deep alignment practices inspired by Klein Technique and Alexander Technique and then begin bringing them into the space using imagery and awareness to become soft, elastic and playful in our relationship to our bodies and space. We will encounter ourselves dancing through tasks and directives that allow us to become curious about different places to move from and how we begin to make choices in our discoveries in space.

Please bring comfortable clothing, an open mind and your body, of course.

No dance knowledge is necessary only the desire to expand and explore physical territories.

Trained extensively in movement research, somatic practices, yoga and release technique among many other styles of dance, Tiana is currently completing the Klein Technique Teacher Training Certification. Tiana has taught movement research at Jacuzzi, Amsterdam and in Australia.
 
Tiana deeply questions how, and from where, to digest and negotiate with care the predicament of life in 2018 and the future, how to locate ourselves in space/s, and how could aligning oneself or positioning oneself be a tool for activism. Tiana is engaged in the never ending study of the body, dance and the complex field of politics that surround these artistic and everyday systems. As a choreographer and dancer Tiana makes and tours dance works as well as working with and/or performing for Cristina Kristal Rizzo (IT), Oneka von Schrader, Giulio D’Anna (NL/IT), Juli Reinhartz (DE), Theater Thikwa (DE), Jeremy Wade and Benjamin Kamino.
