22nd-23rd February 2025
Workshop with The Kernel Dance Company
Kune movement

KUNE is a method of movement and training that allows us to improve our knowledge of our body using tools from contemporary dance and martial arts. The aim is to discover, investigate and develop our instinct, awareness and physical abilities.

This method questions the boundaries between disciplines and the relationship between body and mind. Emotions are not ignored or labelled as positive or negative, on the contrary: they are observed and channelled by turning them into tools of expression.

Fighting is multidimensional.
Dancing is multidimensional.
In KUNE, observation and dialogue within the couple work are key elements for self-knowledge.

Objectives and Contents

Expanding people’s capacities and limits through training based on tools taken from dance and martial arts, thus contributing to increase their physical and mental well-being.

KUNE is a workshop that teaches how to break body limits through movement. We use martial arts tools applied to contemporary dance taught by professionals from both disciplines from a horizontal and close approach.

4 STAGES: We use instinct to unlock movement and its emotional connection, deepening the genuine, adaptability and versatility.

THE INSTINCT

In KUNE. Movement Method we use various martial arts tools to work in a very detailed way with the body and emotions; among these disciplines we can highlight Jeet Kune Do and Kali Filipino to approach dislocations, training knives or focus.

LIMITLESS BODIES

Getting close to the limits of the body offers us an infinite number of possibilities, increasing our movement qualities: precision, power, agility, coordination, rhythm, flexibility.

CYCLE WITHOUT CIRCUMFERENCE

Absorb what is useful, discard what is not. Add what is uniquely yours in order to break the pre-established structure and find your own way.

THE VACUUM

After each tool, a space and time for exploration and improvisation is offered with the aim of gathering all the information and transferring it to the body and dance of each person.

Kernel Dance Theatre

The Kernel Dance Theatre company is formed by Junyi Sun, Alma Steiner, and Marina Miguel. We develop our own language by integrating contemporary dance, martial arts, and theater. Kernel (from the German kern or kurna, etymology from the Proto-Germanic language) is a word that means “core, center, or essence of an object or system.” The idiosyncrasy of the company is based on the diversity and plurality of disciplines and origins of the group members. Their work is born with the aim of reflecting and discovering new points of view on current and contemporary issues.
