Dancing Ecology: A Butoh Workshop
6:30-8:30 p.m., Oct. 10, 2017 in DGL 210
How can dance practices help us negotiate and investigate our relationship to our environment? This workshop will open with a brief lecture introduction to butoh and then will involve various physical warmups and exercises to explore that question. No dance experience is required, but do come prepared to move. Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in (no jeans) and bring some sturdy closed-toe shoes in case we go outside.
Dr. Rosemary Candelario, Assistant Professor of Dance, is a scholar and artist specializing in butoh, a avant-garde dance form that developed in Japan in the 1960s and that has since spread around the world. She has studied, taught, and performed butoh across the United States and around the world. She is the author of Flowers Cracking Concrete: Eiko & Koma's Asian/American Choreographies (Wesleyan University Press 2016) and the co-editor of the Routledge Companion to Butoh Performance (Routledge, forthcoming 2018).
