THEATRE HORIZON presents New Directors' Movement
SUPER PHYSICAL WORKSHOP WITH MAKOTO MATSUSHIMA
 

2017.04.10 - 04.14
HKICC Lee Shau Kee School of Creativity

 

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

The Theme of this workshop is "HOW TO MOVE WITH REALITY : FUNKTIONEN."
Makoto Matsushima invites participants to consider movement and its functions. How does a performer increase the awareness of behaviour simply by restricting the number of functions of a movement? These functions (funktionen) include:
1. Material
2. To observe
3. To interpret
4. To mediate
5. To operate
Material is not a function but it interacts with the other functions.
The instructor may combine these functions freely to help participants to create.
There are five sessions in this workshop with a total of 15 hours. Participants are advised to wear sport-appropriate clothes and no shoes in the workshop.

MAKOTO MATSUSHIMA (The Instructor)

Makoto Matsushima is a graduate of the Nihon University College of Art. He launched his stage career with the Japanese dance theatre company Pappa TARAHUMARA while he was still a student, and has won critical acclaim for his performances both in television and on stage. From1995, Matsushima began creating his own pieces, working both as choreographer and dancer. In 1997, he performed in Zuni Icosahedron’s production Invisible Cities. He has toured Aia, Europe, and the U.S. with Pappa TARAHUMARA, and participated in its Hong Kong production of Spring Day (Haruhiru) in 1998. The following year, he choreographed and performed in Thunder and Lightning, a production by Edward Lam Dance Theatre, for the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Matsushima has been the artist-in-residence at Zuni Icosahedron, and collaborated with many Hong Kong’s local artists in addition to giving solo performances of his works. He is also active in the areas of set design and fine-art works. He was Professor at Korea National University of Arts in 2008 and later in 2010.

Makoto will appear in Theatre Horizon's latest production of the trilogy, ‘Century-old Dreams of a Fishing Harbour Episode II Nightmares’ as guest performer.
 

NEW DIRECTORS' MOVEMENT

Experienced teachers of various disciplines from different countries will be invited to conduct performance workshops to provide the participating young artists nutrients for their creation. These workshops welcome the community to join, letting local professional theatre artists and people interested in performance research, a great opportunity to work with the world's diverse training in theatre.
