"Radial body Radial Space"
10 & 11 June 2023
by Tiziana Longo / Motimaru
In this workshop we approach Japanese Butoh in its methodology and essence.When we look at a Japanese garden in Kyoto, we are astounded. Within such a space there are very few elements, the space is mostly empty and still. Yet if we really observe, listen and contemplate, we might discover in this stillness a living and vibrant breath and in such a vast emptiness, suddenly in front of our eyes, the fullness of our entire existence. If we move from Japan to us and we start observing inside, with a precise bodily method, we enter into our inner forests with unexpected myriads and myriads of trees, plants, flowers, insects, animals, sounds, etc ... we are all full of resources to transform our life into universal poetry and our body into a body of soul. Of not 1000 talkative movements but one from within.
Based in Berlin since 2010, I am a freelance performing artist, choreographer, and teacher. Co-founder of Motimaru Dance Company together with Motoya Kondo.
After completing my Bachelor's degree in Performing Arts at the University of Bologna, I spent five years in Japan. I studied at the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio, danced, and technical assisted Yoshito Ohno, son of Kazuo Ohno, the co-founder of Japanese Butoh dance.
During my time in Japan, I won a 1 seat scholarship as a foreign artist from the Japanese Ministry of Culture to conduct research about Japanese Contemporary dance involving the Hijikata Tatsumi Archive at the Art Center of Tokyo Keio University.
Later I have done fieldwork research on Eastern Dances in Japan, India, Nepal, Bali. In those travels, I experienced the cultural/artistic aspect of dance and also its primitive, social, psychological aspects.
My Spectrum of body-mind research has expanded further to the philosophy of Yoga (Hatha Yoga Teacher Training), Levine's psychology of trauma healing, and the T.R.E. (Trauma/Tension Release Exercise Method Certified Provider).
As a choreographer and dance coach, my work focuses on the movement behind the dance, the dance itself, and its possibilities for expansion. As teacherI have been leading regular classes and intensive, thematic workshops in Berlin and abroad since 2010. Over the past 15 years, she has performed internationally and worked in residencies in more than 30 cities in Europe, Australia, and Japan. I performed at the 2010 Venice Biennale in Italy - selected by and under the direction of Ismael Ivo, at "No Ballet" in Ludwigshafen 2014, at "Lucky Trimmer" International Dance Festival in Berlin 2016, "Dance ga Mittai" Contemporary Dance Festival in Tokyo 2016, "Oulu Dance Festival in Finland 2016, etc...
