LEIMAY Ludus Lab with butoh dancer Moeno Wakamatsu
“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 on physical and mental training to sharpen awareness, sensitivity, and concentration. How can the body be moved, not by self-volition, but by the properties of time, space, and matter? How to sense and embody the subtleties of density, weight, temperature, light/darkness, textures, and currents of time and space. How to clearly externalize and to direct felt sensations and desires as an expression.

About butoh dancer Moeno Wakamatsu:
Born 1975 in Tokyo Japan. She is a dancer, a Feldenkrais practitioner, and an architect. After her younger years in New York City where she studied at The Cooper Union School of Architecture, she gradually extended her work in the US and Europe as a solo performer.
Her work exists outside of the art of ideas or concepts, and aims for direct communication in intensified time and space. A manifestation of an expression that is beyond physical movement, her work often perplexes ordinary dance categorization.
“I wish to suspend within the moment where inner desire meets outer phenomena.”
