Oct. 5 to 9, 2020 | 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Mon.-Fri.)
Open to artists of all disciplines / In English
Capacity: 12 people


ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

Butoh (or dance of darkness) is one of the major developments of contemporary dance. It has revolutionized the way people view what dance is or can be. Originating in 1960s Japan, founded by Hijikata Tatsumi, it has created new forms of dance movement and expression. Its powerful images and new approach to dance have stirred the interest and imagination of a growing world audience. Butoh takes its strength from interior movement: the body twists, contracts, extends. Softness, violence, slowness, sensuality, and immobility are all part of butoh. The butoh dancer attempts to bare his inner soul to reveal the suffering and joy of life.


ABOUT THE ARTIST

Paul Ibey is of French, British, and Irish background. His training in Europe includes mime and movement with Adam Darius, contemporary dance at The Place and with Ballet Rambert’s Lucy Burge, Sally Owen, Ruth Silk, Nelson Fernandez, Christopher Bruce, and Robert Cohan of London Contemporary Dance Theatre.


His ballet training has included the Royal Ballet’s Lynn Seymour, Roger Tulley, Tatiana Tchernova, Lazaro Surmeyan, Gelsey Kirkland, and Stanley Williams. He also studied and worked with the world renowned Lindsay Kemp Company. He has choreographed and produced a number of works that combine dance, theatre, and music.


His prime focus has been butoh dance, which he studied with Sankai Juku, Dai Rakuda Kan, Natsu Nakajima, Carlotta Ikeda, Manhong Kang, and butoh founders Kazuo and Yoshito Ohno.


His work has been shown in London, Paris, New York, and throughout Europe and the Middle East. He has taught classes at the Martha Graham School, Northern Ballet Theatre and in Poland, Egypt, Palestine, Albania, Croatia, and Hungary. He also recently performed with Sankai Juku dancers in Japan.
