Our bodies are not just flesh and blood. They are also institutions with cultures and stories. Our bodies influence how we move, how we think and how we create, and most importantly how we perceive the world.
How are these traditional and contemporary body vocabularies related to the institutions of the day? How is it related to the theatre of today? How can practitioners learn the treasures of yesterday and turn it into the treasures of today?
What do these masters have in common, how are they different? How will these histories on the masters speak to each other? How will they speak to you?
