The Engendering Project: Casting Shadows
Directed by Joan Laage (Kogut Butoh), The Engendering Project: Casting Shadows emerged out of investigating how gender fluidity and transformation have continued to shape the artist's work over the past two decades. Joan's collaborators are Kaoru Okumura (video and photography) and an electric string trio directed by Jackie An with Doris Bartha and Emily Price. The Engendering Project is supported in part by the CityArtist Projects 2013, City of Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs. (Ticket)

A founding member of DAIPANbutoh Collective and new faculty at Cornish College, Joan is known as a NW butoh pioneer. After studying with masters Kazuo Ohno and Yoko Ashikawa in Tokyo in the late 80s and performing with Ashikawa's group Gnome, she settled in Seattle and founded Dappin' Butoh in 1990. While living in Poland she took the performance name of Kogut (rooster). In May 2011, she was featured at the butoh symposium at UCLA. Joan performed at the New York, Chicago, Portland, Boulder, Seattle and Paris butoh festivals. With a Ph.D. in Dance & Related Arts (Texas Woman's University, 1993), her dissertation focuses on the body in butoh. Joan is featured in Sondra Fraleigh's books  Dancing into Darkness: Butoh, Zen, and Japan and Butoh: Metamorphic Dance and Global Alchemy. She frequently creates site-specific work for the Seattle Japanese Garden where she is a docent. The year of 2013 includes a 4Culture Historical Site-Specific event titled The Suitcases Project at Snoqualmie Depot.
