A torrent of AcTS and Training
May 21-June 29, 2014

SOAK is a festival presenting a torrent of acts and workshops in theater, butoh, dance, and performance art every spring over four weeks in May and June. SOAK is molded by LEIMAY, the interdisciplinary ensemble and producing organization behind the acclaimed New York Butoh Festival. SOAK takes place at LEIMAY’s home, CAVE, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

SOAK broadens the perceptions of our artists and audiences with work that is experimental, rigorous, and thought-provoking. The festival showcases finished and in-progress work by international, local and resident artists and blends them together in a concoction that inspires audiences, fuels the artists, and stimulates the community surrounding LEIMAY’s activities.

LEIMAY Ludus Training sessions happening during SOAK feature a three part LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh master Ko Murobushi, a LEIMAY Ludus Summer Intensive with Artistic Director Ximena Garnica, and seven LEIMAY Ludus Labs in theater, dance, butoh and dramaturgy with guest teachers and masters Polina Klimovitskaya, Elke Luyten, Kota Yamazaki, Moeno Wakamatsu, Rebecca Brooks, and Susan Mar Landau, and Mario Biagini.

SOAK performances include work by legendary butoh master Ko Murobushi, butoh dancers Moeno Wakamatsu, Kota Yamazaki, and Mina Nishimura, guest local artists Elke Luyten & Kira Alker, Massimiliano Balduzzi, Masanori Asahara, Racoco Productions, and Michael Bodel, Angeli, and Andrea Jones, and new and in progress work by artists and members of LEIMAY’s Black Studio Share program: Rebecca Brooks, Carlye Eckert, Jeremy Goren, Sophia Treanor, Anabella Lenzu, Kika Espejo, Julia Crockett, and Terra Incognita.

In addition to our workshops and performances, we will also be selling raffle tickets as part of our annual Lucky Cookie Time fundraiser. Prizes include:
