IN STUDIO: DENISE FUJIWARA (TOR) — Butoh and the Art of the Soloist

Nov. 8 to 12, 2021 — 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Mon.-Fri.)
Language of instruction: English 

In this workshop, we will explore the art of the soloist.  What is it that makes an exceptional soloist compelling to watch?  How do we practice this art?  Through the contemporary Japanese dance-theatre practice of Butoh, we will work from vivid internal conditions expressed through intense physicality to train the body and imagination, to reveal the dance’s inner life of authenticity, depth and paradox, and to express one’s humanity in all of its irrationality, ugliness, beauty and mirth. READ MORE HERE >
