While in residence at DiverseWorks for the development of his new performance project, Direct Path to Detour, Portland, Oregon-based choreographer Takahiro Yamamoto will present a free public workshop.
Tuesday, February 14, 1 – 2:30 pm
Asia Society Texas, Edward Rudge Allen III Education Center
1370 Southmore Blvd, Houston, TX 77004
No movement experience is necessary. Free, but advance RSVP is required by emailing Taylor Hoblitzell, email@example.com.
This workshop introduces breathing exercises and light improvisational movement practice, techniques that Yamamoto has been investigating for Direct Path to Detour. At the end, group discussion will be held to explore participants’ physical experiences in relationship to their personal backgrounds. According to Yamamoto, the idea of ‘post memory’ will be discussed – delving into the interconnectivity of things that we don’t know, things that we physically experience, and things that we don’t articulate.
