Movement Workshop, Music Talk/Demonstration, Music Concert

Subtropics and Tigertail present this French duo for a 3-day residency at Subtropics' venue Audiotheque.

On Monday, May 22, 3:00-7:00 PM, Myriam Gourfink presents a workshop titled Choreographic Composition through Yoga. For the past two decades, Gourfink's choreograhic compositional process has entwined principles of breathing and meditation yoga practice. Her dance is guided by the flowing elasticity of breathing movements, allowing the performer time to genuinely feel these movements. This heightened awareness of breath – cellular breathing – allows the subtle transfer of weight, inch by inch, maintaining balance without tension.
Space is limited. Call Tigertail at 305 324 4337 to RSVP.

This workshop will propose an immersive environment in which Gourfink will be sharing her cerebral and corporeal practice based on energy yoga techniques – Tibetan Buddhist tantric practices (Tilopa-Naropa-Marpa) – and will invite participants to explore the compositional frameworks generated through them. Devising the right conditions to connect the cerebral and the corporeal has become a major focus in her practice. In order to establish these subtle connections between doing and thinking, she developed open scores which invite participants to actively participate in choreographic composition. Supported by composer Kasper T Toeplitz's sound scores and Laban notation will allow participants to further delve into the practice.

On Tuesday, May 23, at 8:00 PM, Kasper Toeplitz will curate The Listening Club, Subtropics' regular music examination series. Toeplitz's program is titled A Change in Paradigm: New Noise in Europe. The program will explore noise in the new, experimental, and avant-garde music of recent Europe.

On Wednesday, May 24, at 8:00 PM, Kasper Toeplitz will perform Amas, a piece for live electronics. This 70-minute-long work – conceived for a dance by Myriam Gourfink – is about "blurriness of the senses." Amas will receive its US premiere at Audiotheque in celebration of its new release on Pogus Records.

The U.S. Tour of Myriam Gourfink and Kasper Toeplitz is supported by
the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States, and Institut français (Paris)
