This course contemplates metaphorical nakedness through interdisciplinary discourse. Taught by NYC-based artist Eiko Otake, of Eiko & Koma, students will examine how being or becoming a mover reflects and alters each person’s relationships with the environment, with history, and with other beings. Students will participate in movement explorations; watch films; read volumes of essays and literature; write journal entries; attend mandatory out-of-class activities; and create final projects with a paper. Topics of study and discussion include Eiko & Koma’s aesthetic and inspirations, atomic bomb literature, and post-war Japan. No dance/movement experience necessary, but willingness to explore and share is a must.
