Workshop: Butoh/Voice Intensive with Denise Fujiwara and Gerry Trentham, Fujiwara Dance Inventions

December 1 – 5 & December 8 – 12, 2014
509 Parliament Street, Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre, Studio C

Participants of this intensive two-week program will explore a new frontier of performance training. The program integrates the embodiment practices of the dance-theatre form of Butoh with the embodiment practices of Linklater voice and speech work as a means to increased creative potential, range and precision as performers and performance creators.


The morning session will focus on integrated voice and Butoh practice, while the afternoon will develop these practices through performance, focusing on monologue and scene text, performance presence, physical/vocal improvisation and authentic character.
