Description:
About Project Wandering Scholars is an interdisciplinary symposium about contemporary culture, art, media and scholarship that focuses on acts of “walking” and “wandering” as strategies of thought and expression.

LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Kota Yamazaki


Type:
Workshop

Dates:
Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:00 - Sun Jun 08, 2014

Location:
Brooklyn, New York
United States of America

Description:
In this single session, students will explore the unknown possibilities of butoh through Kota Yamazaki’s approach to butoh and his Fluid Technique. Butoh’s approach to space and time is almost opposite from Western dance forms.

Students will be encouraged to develop an awareness of what is occurring both inwardly and outwardly. ...

Through choreographed structures we will place an external geometry inside the performer’s body and explore a deep investigation in presence and intentionality. Through improvisation we will strip away the need to show, to present and to perform so ...

who asks what when and why? The creation of a performance work demands different kinds of dramaturgical questions for the artist to consider: What are these questions? Who asks them? When and why? Together we will explore what form and import these questions might take, as we draw reference from Roland Barthesʼ essay “The Death of the Author”, as well as from an in depth conversation with SOAK artist Julia Crockett about her own artistic ...

Location:
Brooklyn, New York

“The basis of my dance is an attempt to make visible what already exists in the environment but was hitherto invisible and without meaning.” In dance, if we position ourselves to perceive the environment directly, the environment itself will manifest in our body as presence, physicality, and movement. When the mind and body are in a status of acute listening, we can approach an expression of the true-self. This LEIMAY Ludus Training Lab will focus ...
