Pivotal Moves, driven by forefoot movements

(1)The technical emphasis is on the forefoot movements that play as the base of support; the right foot is primarily anchored on the spot to facilitate the pivotal moves shown on the video. The kinetic energy, which drives the rotational and dragging moves of the left leg, is produced by and transmitted from the interaction between the right foot and the contact surface. The upper body mostly remains relaxed; however, abdominal muscles continuously regulate respiratory movements which initiate all types of movements, including the pivotal moves mentioned above.

(2)The excerpt from the ABSENCE OF SOUND: the Cold War history and its legacy, reinterpreted to pose a fundamental question: how are the ruling principles of the system intensified during the Cold War era still valid and restricting freedom of movement?

THE RESPIRATORY UNDULATION AND ITS RHYTHMICALITY

THE RESPIRATORY UNDULATION AND ITS RHYTHMICALITY
The oscillatory cycle of respiration elicits two contrasting mechanical movements: expansion and compression; these actions are paired to form the constituent pattern that constantly repeats in a complementary manner that facilitates and regulates all types of kinetic movements. Thus, this elastic quality universally appears in a sequence of movements at various intensities and speeds; in doing so, what can be recognized as rhythmic flows physiologically arises in the body.
Rhythm can be defined as a phrase of physical movements, materially expressed with the combination of the strong and the weak elements. Furthermore, the biomechanical rhythmicality can be deliberately magnified and utilized for addressing expressive needs by interacting with musical instruments which are devised to convert touches into sounds.

NYTKE Festival 2019 in Tampere, Finland

NYTKE festival is the contemporary dance festival, which took place on July 15-20, 2019 in Tampere, Finland. The workshops of the FREE FLOW: physicality toward musicality were delivered in two formats: (1)Professionally trained group (2)Open Level. Plus, the showcase for a duet piece with Nelly Hakkarainen was held on the last day of the festival at Tanssiteatteri MD. The following are the pictures taken by Raf Mielczarek and Matti Kilponen (chilpura on Instagram).

WORKSHOP ON BIOMECHANICS

Patterned Movement is the term referring to the sets of the elementary moves: breathing, crawling, standing, walking, running, and jumping. Those are foundational and critical for the execution of complex motor tasks; however, the significance of the basic tends to be neglected as techniques are mastered to be used and performed at professional levels. Technically speaking, respiratory regulation, postural control, and contralateral movements are the notions that specify the essential principles of the biomechanics of human movements, which regulate and sustain the body in a concerted manner.

The workshop that took place at ARTWEEN STUDIO in Seoul, S.Korea on July 7, 2019, was to remind experienced performing artists <bboys, contemporary dancers, mime artists> of the fundamentals of movements, universal to the human body, regardless of style and discipline.
