This is the trailer for the lecture-performance series, THE DANCING BODY TO BE FREE FOR ITSELF: The Biomechanics for Dancers and Movers – an educational project supported by TAIKE (the Finnish arts promotion center). And the very first event will be held in the southeast of Finland in August 2022. More details are to come.
Wooguru Kw is a dancer for the body of his own – to be functional, responsive, and free for itself – yet in ways defined by functional limits set by physical and physiological alterations that came with a traumatic head injury at 20.
His dancing all began with his own body and its inherent rhythmicality – abruptly disrupted by injuries, yet still adaptable and resilient for its regular functioning: the foundation for biomechanical integrity to be restored and properly maintained.
His experience of extensive rehabilitation from a series of injuries and neurological complications has been gradually translated into a unique set of empirical knowledge – further examined and explored with biomechanical information and research over the past 20 years.
He now lives with his wife in Finland, where they dance freely with nature.
