Yumiko Yoshioka: Body Resonance
Come Enjoy an Evening of Yumiko Yoshioka's choreography.
Yumiko Yoshioka studied and performed with Butohs founders Hijikata and Ohno, and was both an original member of Ariaadine, Japans first female butoh company, and a participant in the first performance of butoh outside of Japan in Paris 1978. Using the cultural fricition between East and West as a creative engine for her work, Yumiko became a leader of the burgeioning European butoh scene, ultimately settling in Berlin, Germany in 1988. Ms. Yoshioka is currenly a resident artist at the internationally renowned Scholss Broellin (Castle of Broellin) theater research center. As both performer and choreographer, Yumikos work explores the possibility of metamorphosis and transformation in performance by activating primal memory through physical movement.
