Gio Kusanagi was trained with Eurythmy (developed by Rudolf Steiner) by Akira Kasai and Jolanda Frischknecht. Eurythmy is a movement art that attempts to embody the vibrations of various elements, such as, color, spoken language, music, soul gestures, & planets. During the first half, participants will learn the movements that correspond to vowels and consonants in Speech Eurythmy, followed by their short presentation in pairs by exercising the learned skills. In the second half, participants will learn the Color Eurythmy, followed by a guided meditation to access their core , which will then be translated into original color paintings. The lab will culminate with the participant’s active self-expression through the dances of inner colors.
Gio Kusanagi is native of Japan and studied Butoh with Moe Yamamoto, Toru Iwashita, Kunisuke Kamiryo, Yoshito Ohno, Yukio Waguri, Seisaku & Yuri, Ko Muroboshi, & Kayo Mikami, and was an Artist in Residence at Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance in 2012, along with various other commissioned works.
