How Imagination Works. Valeska-Gert-Gastprofessur Toshiki Okada


For Toshiki Okada, director, author, founder and director of the chelfitch Company, Tokyo, imagination is at the heart of making theatre: “I see imagination on stage as a kind of choreographer; it is very often a genius at finding crazy movements you cannot create through theoretical thinking.” He will initially work with the students on observing how they can be affected by imagination and how it moves their bodies, and then develop this further using language and by making movements more interesting.
