The local festival runs Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 25-28, with three performances and two workshops.
Yumiko Yoshioka performs at BeBe Theatre on Thursday and Friday, April 7-8, at 7:30 p.m. Plus, she’ll lead two workshops there on Saturday and Sunday, April 9-10, from 1-5 p.m., before local performers display Asheville’s take on butoh.
“It’s new work, old work, old-work revisited, but overall it’s about being an artist now, and expressing that through movement,” says Kathy Leiner, a founding member of Moving Women, an Asheville-based contemporary dance company. “It’s about seeing women at different points in their creative experiences.”
This is dance as poetry and metaphor. Like poetry, it makes the familiar strange and the strange familiar.
