This work’s development began during a Blank Canvas artist residency at The Firkin Crane in Cork, Ireland, August 2014. While serving as a Guest Artist at Mills College (Oakland CA), I continue to explore and develop At the moment of encounter. A Production Residency is scheduled for May 11-17, 2015 at Mills College’s Lisser Theater.

Synopsis: The intrigue lies in how meditatively stillness, working from the internal through to the external, creating a progressive shift of dynamics while playing with the ideas of suspension, repetition, and variations on a movement theme can draw in both performer and witness (audience).

This Week at Movement Research…


 Sunday Process Lab with Mina Nishimura

Sunday June 15 5:00 pm-8:00 pm $5
Movement Research at Eden’s Expressway

In this laboratory, my current research around butoh scores and internal landscape as well as some of my somatic practices around nuanced forms and movements will be shared and practiced with participants. After a brief introduction to butoh and butoh scores, how to use actual butoh scores in your own creation process will be explored and discussed. Drawing and writing are involved in the process of exploration.
