In the world of dance and performance, there is a fascinating approach that delves into the intersection between the body and its surroundings. This approach is called Body Weather, or body climatology, and is a comprehensive training and performance practice that has inspired movement artists around the world. On this journey of self-discovery through body and space is the featured teacher of this course, Andrés Corchero.
Body Weather is much more than just a movement technique; it is a deep exploration of body memory, individual movement patterns and the relationship between mind and body.
In this workshop that we host at Moveo Centre on the 1st and 2nd of March 2024, participants have the opportunity to fully review the body and movement in different and changing environments, and the internal rhythms that influence the way we move. No previous experience is required, making it an accessible starting point for anyone wishing to embark on this exciting journey.

During his trip, he danced with the Mai-Juku company, directed by Min Tanaka, from 1986 to 1995. This trip gave him the opportunity to immerse himself in the richness of butoh dance and learn from the best.
