Delicious Movement in Tokyo 2017

10th Jun–24th Jun, 2017

“Delicious Movement in Tokyo” invites NY-based artist Eiko Otake this June (10th, 17th and 24th) to lead a series of workshops at Tokyo University. Participants, drawn from various professions and walks of life, will contemplate themes such as time and space, self and others through interdisciplinary discourse. We do so not only through readings and discussions in seminars modeled after American liberal arts classrooms, but through movement labs that involve the whole body for a richly holistic learning process. Move, see, feel, talk, listen, think, read, write—connect.

Delicious Movement is looking for 20 participants (all ages, occupations, and backgrounds). In the selection process, preference will be given to those who can attend all the sessions, as well as those in the education field. You do not need any dance experience—anyone willing to move is welcome. Apply here.

Born and raised in Japan, Eiko Otake is a New York-based, movement-based interdisciplinary artist and performer. As a duet Eiko & Koma, they were honored with two New York Dance and Performance Awards, two Guggenheim fellowships (1984), a MacArthur Fellowship (1996), the Samuel H. Scripps American Dance Festival Award (2004), the first United States Artists Fellowship (2006), and more.
