Adam Koan returns to Asheville to guide a 3 hour workshop on the theme of ground and floor resonance. We will go through a series of exercises involving low level movement and/or a personal connection with earth/ground. The ground will be our inspiration, our ally. Sound/drone accompaniment by Fyodor Shackelton.
Adam Koan is an international butoh performer and facilitator who started out with classical dance and branched out to Butoh. He gained the bulk of his Butoh experience through the Subbody School of Butoh in Dharamsala, India under Rhizome Lee (2013, 2014, 2017), but has also been exposed to a number of other known butoh masters throughout the world.
