Embodiment/Butoh

Using principles of Butoh, the Japanese postmodern dance-theatre practice, we transcend form and steps to discover dance that is specific, embodied and that cultivates creativity.

Denise Fujiwara recently won the Toronto Arts Foundation Award for International Achievement in Dance.  Her work as a dance artist has developed over 30 years of intensive practice, performance and study.  Her mentor in Butoh is Tokyo master, Natsu Nakajima.  Fujiwara practices a Butoh that cultivates curiosity, the imagination, awareness, presence and deeply embodied movement.  Her most recent work, EUNOIA, premiered in Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage, was nominated for three Dora Awards and named in NOW Magazines Top 5 Dances of 2014.  She leads workshops and master classes across Canada and abroad.  www.fujiwaradance.com
