Event Description

This Guest Teacher Lab is divided into two different modules. Modules can be taken separately or together.

This Guest Teacher Lab is open to dancers, body-rooted performers, physical actors of all levels, ages, and capabilities. Modules will explore the following elements and subjects:

Module I  // Introduction to Butoh “ma” (12 hrs)
May 3, 6pm – 10pm; May 4 & 5, 10am – 2pm

This lab focuses on Tadashi Endo’s Butoh-ma method which aims to make the invisible visible. ”Ma” is a Japanese concept related to “emptiness” and “space in-between.” It suggests an interval and a consciousness of place. Through these sessions, students will explore this unique concept.

Tadashi Endo is not only teaching how to move but also tries to give a deep view in the way of Butoh and its philosophy.  Concentrations of the workshop include:

  • Letting the participants experience slowness.
  • Concentrating on the feet as an important organ of sight and perception.
  • Sensitivity to associated images which should be manifested in movements.
  • Reaching inner emptiness. Out of this calmness, it is possible to gain the intensive and clear expression that is well-known in Butoh, Noh, and the Kabuki.

Module II // Performance Collaboration & Public Presentation (40 hours)
May 8-10, 6pm-10pm, May 11-12 10am-2pm, & May 15-17, 6pm-10pm // Public presentation: May 18-19 12pm-4pm

In this 40-hour module, Tadashi aims to create a new collaborative work, based on the Butoh “ma” theory, together with workshop participants. Participants will be exposed to all aspects of making a piece, which can include costume making and technical preparations, and it will culminate in a public presentation at a selected New York Restoration Project community garden. This performance lab will take place as part of LEIMAY’s presenting series OUTSIGHT presented in partnership with NYRP.

Full Session, Module I & II: $702 (Early Registration) / $936 (After January 1st)
Module I Only: $180 (Early Registration) / $240 (After January 1st)
Module II Only: $600 (Early Registration) / $800 (After January 1st)
