About the event

"Embodying the Spirit: the body finds its way"

Experience training methods towards a supple body and mind and investigate aesthetics

common to butoh through creative explorations. In this workshop we will celebrate the energy

and textures of Fall, focusing on the wind element and the life cycle of trees. Partner work will

facilitate participants’ individual and collective journeys.

Joan Laage: Joan Laage (Kogut) studied under butoh masters Kazuo Ohno and Yoko Ashikawa and

performed with Ashikawa’s group Gnome in Japan in the late 80s and has enjoyed training with

Atsushi Takenouchi for many years. These experiences, along with her background as a Tai Chi

practitioner and professional gardener, form the basis of her work. Joan has been an adjunct

faculty at Cornish College of The Arts and is featured in Tanya Calamoneri’s Butoh America.
