Christine Kono was born in California in 1946. From 1987 to 1994 she was ballet mistress at Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, and later on she worked for Joachim Schlömer in Weimar and Basel. She continues to work with Tanztheater Wuppertal, Ballet Preljocaj, Dance-On Ensemble/ Diehl + Ritter, Hollins University Roanoke,Va., USA, Centre National de la Danse Paris.
Kono is strongly influenced by the movement research based on the awakening of the spinal energy. In this workshop, she will begin with simple exercises to stimulate this spinal energy. With the alertness which ensues from this energy, the basic principles of movement (space, dynamic, time) will be explored. The participants will examine how the use of the spine gives their actions both depth and resonance.
