Body Weather – Body Landscape. Body Weather is a comprehensive training and performance practice that investigates the intersections of bodies and their environments. Bodies are not conceived of as fixed entities but as constantly changing through an infinite and complex system of processes occurring in and outside of these bodies. Taking Body Weather into the landscape the aim is to explore and develop consciousness of the body as an ever-evolving landscape within a greater surrounding landscape.
Frank van de Ven is a dancer and choreographer who spent his formative years in Japan working with Min Tanaka and the Maijuku Performance Company. In 1993, with Katerina Bakatsaki, he founded Body Weather Amsterdam, a platform for training and performance.
