From the ninja's handbook:
“ The impact starting at a minuscule point and then reverberating into the entire organism, creating a vibration but also a distribution of shock, saving all bone, tissue and inner organs from harm when what could have been a devastating blow has been broken into a multitude of smaller shocks that are entirely harmless in and of themselves.
This is achieved by first tensing all muscles and through careful control, letting all tension go in perfect waves from the impact's epicentre and out into the body. This is done throughout in a matter of nanoseconds, only possible for the true master.”
This video is one of the tools for an open-source physical-theatre project by Jens Bäckvall and Christian Adelhorst Rossil. Every day in 2012, we will create a small movement or other idea for the stage with a minimum length of 10 seconds. This will be filmed and uploaded. The uploads are not meant as finished material, but are sketches for possible further work. Every video and the things done in them are open-source, meaning that anyone may copy, use or be inspired by the videos and movements and use them in any way they want to. All that we ask is that you mention our names in any flyers etc. if you use it. Also, we ask you to comment on the material, either through writing or creating and filming material of your own. Anything you upload will also become open-source and a part of the project. In the beginning of 2013, we will create a performance, based on and using some or all of the material that we, and others, have created.
