Butoh is an image-based movement exploration. It asks what can a body do and what is a body? It draws us to the question of who we really are?
Each class will begin with a Noguchi gymnastic-based mind-body workout, followed by image explorations, breathing energy exercises, and then choreographic structures. The 10 weeks will culminate in a student recital. Read more... What is Butoh?
Under the artistic direction of Tanya Calamoneri Ph.D, Company SoGoNo employs an innovative vocabulary that draws from Japanese Butoh dance, Ruth Zaporah’s Action Theater, and contemporary dance-theater. Movement ranges from wild and boldly expressive to quiet and intricate. The characters are typically archetypal, referencing fairytales and dream symbolism. SoGoNo has performed in New York, Seattle, Chicago and Kyoto, including Brooklyn Museum, Irondale, Ontological, 3LD Art & Technology, Culture Project Women Center Stage and Lincoln Center Out of Doors.
