Thematic rope climbing workshop presented at three locations in Kihokuchou, Mie prefecture. Seven days spent looking at fundamental concepts for movement and technique presented by seven teachers, each of whom held on to similar concepts to the previous day throughout their session. Rather than giving students the finshed cake they were given raw ingredients each day, eggs, flour, milk...chickens, wheat, cows...DNA structures, Seed Banks. Drumming ever so gently toward fundamentals has left us all with beautiful sensations, students and teachers alike. Thank you to everybody who made this interesting and very special week happen. Some cake was eaten too..
