Japanese playwright/director/choreographer Toshiki Okada, founder of the red-hot theater company chelfitsch, leads an intensive workshop for choreographers, dancers and physical theater artists. Okada, whose award-winning play Five Days in March was presented at Japan Society last year to much buzz, has become the most talked-about theater artist in Japan and Europe for his use of “super-real” dialogue accompanied by a choreography made up of exaggerated everyday gestures of fidgets and twitches. Okada’s workshop opens up the possibility of theater and dance vocabulary to include these quotidian movements, and to go beyond “real” to find the hyper-real.
Max 15 people.* Performance or directing experience required.
$38/$28 Japan Society members
