Creating Character Through Movement
By raising awareness of the physical possibilities in the body this workshop will encourage finding richer and more meaningful personal movement. Employing various processes used in dance theater practices, we will search where movement starts and push the limits of where it can go.

Azusa has been a member of Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch since 2000. She was born in Japan, studied ballet in Japan, USA, Canada, Mexico, and Cuba. In 1994 she studied at North Carolina School Of The Arts. After dancing in several companies she went to Folkwang Hochschule in Essen, Germany.

This workshop is a part of
International Dance Dialogues (IDD)
Created and Curated by Janet Panetta
International Dance Dialogues (IDD) is a program designed to address the need for New York’s developing dance artists to have meaningful interchange with their counterparts and potential mentors from Eastern and Western Europe. While New York artists are able to see the performances of larger companies like Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal, our artists are rarely able to interact with the creators and performers from these companies in an intimate setting. In addition, lesser-known yet prize-winning and critically-acclaimed European artists do not come to New York to perform due to lack of name recognition, funding and suitable venues; again, access to these artists is very rare for New York dancers and choreographers. IDD provides a venue where substantive professional exchange and even friendships develop, so that significant and often ongoing connections are created.
