The esteemed solo dance artist Moeno Wakamatsu returns to SOAK!
[This place is everywhere, every place is nowhere. In time eternity, this time is no time. Shadow rise in rose-colored eternity.] I met my shadow and it said to me…. To be Here, To be Everywhere, To Be Nowhere. Circulation of Being and Nothingness.
Zack Fuller/Stupid Wisdom
Manifestations of Zone
Stupid Wisdom is the moniker for Fuller’s collaborations with long-time cohort, Jonathan Vincent, where body and instrument is one and the same, where dance and music act as a holistic being, not separate entities. Manifestations of Zone, is a lethal infanta, an imaginary friend of the duo who appears in various forms.
Song of the body, dance of the sound: an acoustic punk butoh love song to a baby demon goddess.
A body can resonate
With roots in song forms and improvised movement structures, Sciscioli explores the capacity for vibration generated in one body to stir, compel and communicate with others, and structurally moves from darkness to light. This solo continues Sciscioli’s experimental exploration of a relationship between moving and vocalizing in performance.
RSVPs are now OPEN! Please register your attendance HERE.
Moeno Wakamatsu is a Japanese solo dance artist residing in the countryside of France. Originally an architect, she is also a Feldenkrais practitioner for over 15 years. Her work exists outside the arts of ideas or concepts, and aims for direct communication in intensified time and space. An expression that is beyond physical movements, her work often challenges definition of what is dance.
Zack Fuller’s dances have been presented at CAVE’s New York Butoh Festival, Plan B in Tokyo, Mobius in Boston, The Dance Hakushu Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, St. Thomas College in Thrissur (India), and elsewhere. They frequently involve collaboration with cutting edge musicians such as Keiji Haino, Tatsuya Nakatani, Kat Hernandez, and his longtime collaborator Jonathan Vincent. He is strongly influenced by his experience participating in theatrical research with Ryszard Cieslak, the leading actor of Jerzy Grotowski’s Polish Laboratory Theater in the late eighties. From 1997-2001 he performed throughout Europe, Japan, and the U.S. in works by the renowned dancer/farmer Min Tanaka, including the U.S. tour of Poe Project and the European tour of the Goya series.
