Butoh Workshop in New York: LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer SU-EN

  • Location:
    CAVE, 58 Grand Street , Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY, New York, 11249, US

This LEIMAY Ludus Lab will introduce the SU-EN Butoh Method, which aims to create a dancing and a performing body. The body is de-constructed and re-defined. The challenges of body and space present new possibilities. The SU-EN Butoh Method introduces Body Materials as both a very demanding challenge for developing a butoh body and as highly artistic tools for stage performance and choreographic structures. This method does not aim to examine therapeutic processes or self-exploration. No previous dance training is necessary but participants need to be in good physical and mental health.

Dates: October 28th – October 30th
Times: 6pm – 9pm
Price: $130 Non-Member / $126 Conectom Member / $117 Program Member plus processing fee.

SU-EN’s work is based on the Hijikata/Ashikawa Method, which was developed further in the TOMOE SHIZUNE & HAKUTOBO group. SU-EN was a founder member of the student group GNOME for five years, where Yoko Ashikawa choreographed, and trained as an apprentice under Tomoe Shizune. She is the artistic director and choreographer of SU-EN Butoh Company, based in Sweden.
