We are now a container of 9, training five days a week in contact improvisation, butoh, contemporary dance, acrobatics, singing and physical theatre … on stilts. I am being introduced to new concepts and skills. Having had little previous teaching in butoh, I am finding this the most challenging of the training.
The participants are of various levels of skill, I have been able to gain valuable experience in teaching acrobatic stilts to these performers; skills that I will pass on when back in the UK.
We have one more week of training before the schedule changes to building a stilt performance.
