About the Workshop
The New Year is a timely occasion to investigate transformation. Butoh is an enquiry into curiosity, the imagination and transformation. Our questions can provoke us to dance as manifestations of detailed and singular vitality.
Denise Fujiwara is a recipient of the Toronto Arts Foundation Award for International Achievement in Dance. Her work as a dance artist has developed over 40 years of intensive practice, performance and study. Her mentor in Butoh is Tokyo master, Natsu Nakajima whose work she toured internationally for 12 years. Fujiwara practices a Butoh that cultivates curiosity, the imagination, awareness, presence and deeply embodied movement. EUNOIA, a work created using the integrated Voice and Butoh practice developed with Gerry Trentham was nominated for three Dora Awards, was named one of NOW’s Top 5 Dance Shows of 2014, and has begun touring. She leads workshops and master classes across Canada and abroad.
