SOAK 2016 LEIMAY LUDUS Lab with butoh teacher Zack Fuller
Hunting Body Wisdom with butoh teacher Zack Fuller
June 12, 3-7pm, $46
This LUDUS Lab is focused on creating possibilities for improvisation and the development of an omni-centered body. It utilizes elements of Grotowski work and Min Tanaka’s Body Weather workshops. Class begins with a warm-up that is both vigorous and relaxing, moving into focused explorations emphasizing the balance between structure and impulse. The remainder of the lab involves slow movement combined with partnering exercises, physical actions from daily life, and visualization as a means of engaging the body’s inner stream. Appropriate for dancers, movers, improvisers, actors, people interested in butoh, or anyone seeking a physical experience. No previous dance training is necessary.
This lab is part of SOAK 2016, a festival molded by LEIMAY, the interdisciplinary ensemble and producing organization behind the acclaimed New York Butoh Festival.
