The One Continuous

Chen-Wei Lee

“Change is constant, so is non-change, as change and non-change form an inseparable duality.” "Change is the basic way of existence. Existence itself is flow and tranformation." - I CHING "Change", in I CHING chinese philosophy this is the core of the nature system, I'm captivated by this concept. I would like to explore the effectiveness of nature and it's systems in relation with movement development and decrement. The ancient method of I CHING explains the laws of nature, circulation of life. I want to apply and explore these ideas within my research, in particular looking at how the body and it's movement can be the translator for these theories.

Company Showing | Friday 6 Dec | 16.00

As part of Chen-Wei Lee’s residency she will be offering Gaga classes Monday 2 – Thursday 5 December.

Gaga is the movement language developed by Ohad Naharin throughout many years. The language of Gaga originated from the belief in the healing, dynamic, ever-changing power of movement.

Gaga/people classes offer a creative framework for participants to connect to their bodies and imaginations, increase their physical awareness, improve their flexibility and stamina, and experience the pleasure of movement in a welcoming, accepting atmosphere.

Teachers guide the participants using a series of evocative instructions that build one on top of the other. Rather than copying a particular movement, each participant in the class actively explores these instructions, discovering how he or she can interpret the information and perform the task at hand.

Participants should wear comfortable clothes and be prepared to dance barefoot or in socks.
