Loby Lam - NL
Loby works as an improvisation practitioner and teacher. He has a background in improv piano (since 1991) and theatre (Founder of the Theatregroup Vreemdwild in 2009)
He organize performances with students from the Art Academy AKI/ ArtEZ Academie and provide performing workshops.
Since 2014, he practice Japanese martial art Aikido (Aikikan dojo NL) and got more inspiration for the CI practice. The benefits from CI he believes are highly inspired from Aikido.
CI shows benefits applicable to his daily life, like being mindful in the changes and to make a deeper connection with life itself and brings oneself more in the present moment.
Through play, people get connected, and they learn in the most effective way through personal experiences.
He set up Kahbam in 2013, a CI group based in Enschede (NL) to combine all the different gathered perspectives of movements and disciplines in order to offer space to share movement experiences.
Connected movements into performance
How do we make a connection through interaction directed towards our centers?
How do we blend in with the given direction, redirect the connected center point to challenge balance?
We are going to explore and play with connected movements and explore different ways providing of support by grounding and expansion of our bodies.
We challenge and take care of our partners by the amount of input, meanwhile being able to catch ourselves at any given moment.
The findings that are internalized in our muscle memories, will be translated into small performances, to exchange inspirations.
During these performances, we will connect the observers with the performers movements. How does the observer allow inspiration and being moved by the performer, and how it effects their own movements in order to become the performer as a reaction.
How does the performer find conclusions and endings to become the observer?
We become the observer and the performer at the same time by interacting connected movements.
