Maho Suiso Ogawa at DPA 11/16~18

ブルックリンにある、Domestic Performance Agency(DPA) という、" パフォーマンスがどう日常に存在しうるか " という実験をするためのスタジオにて、NYで初めてのフルイブニングイベントを行うことになりました。DPAについては、発起人であるAthenaとMovement Research が行ったインタビューに詳しく載っていますのでこちらをご参照ください。私は6月からDPAにて創作活動を行っていまして、この場所や環境にインスパイアされ、以前の作品にない要素を色々と試みています。


I’m going to present my first solo evening-length event at Domestic Performance Agency(DPA) in Brooklyn NY. 
DPA is a very unique environment conceived by dance artist / cook Athena Kokoronis: you can read the concept of DPT in the interview on Movement Research Website:
I have been working at DPA since June and was inspired a lot from this place.  I hope to see you at one of these events!!! 



The Way of Drinking Hot Water 

At the next performance happening at the DPA, Maho Suiso Ogawa will present her choreographic material, “The Way of Drinking Hot Water”. In “The Way of Drinking Hot Water” Suiso will pull together elements of ritual and sensorial textures to accompany her usage of the Minimum Movement Catalog. Minimum Movement Catalog is a database of 112 movements which Suiso has created and continues to compile through the years. In it, she notes the fine or hard to see movement components within a larger gesture. Hope you will join us for one of these shows.

Maho "Suiso" Ogawa is a New York based movement artist originally from Japan. 


After studying ballet, traditional Japanese dance, Butoh, and graduating from Wako University, She came to the U.S. in 2011. Her works have been shown in various venues in Tokyo, Seoul, and New York: Raft in Tokyo, Korea & Japan Dance Festival in Seoul, Whenever Wherever Festival in Tokyo,  Za Koenji in Tokyo, Dance New Amsterdam Theater in NY, Soak Festival at Cave in NY, The CURRENT SESSIONS at Wild Project in NY, Spring Movement at the Center for Performance Research in NY, New York University Grey Gallery in NY. She’s given many choreography workshops with performance residencies. Ogawa’s work was presented by the Whenever Wherever Dance Festival in 2010, 2011 & 2013 in Tokyo. For example, the work “GRID on GRID” (2010) was presented on the stairs in front of Asahi Art Square building in Tokyo, and  “Grid with fingers and arms” (2011) was live streamed over the internet as well as performed at Morishita Studio in Tokyo.  In 2013 the Tokyo Culture Creation Project invited her to research and create a piece about the human body’s behavior. The work, “Behavior Patterns for the 23rd Century”, supported by a Tokyo Metropolitan Government grant, was composed of people’s subconscious movement patterns in daily life. Her movement database “Minimum Movement Catalog(MMC)” was published in an on-line magazine “Conectom”, published by LEIMAY in 2013, and its theater version was presented at the Soak Festival(NY), The CURRENT SESSIONS(NY), Spring Movement(NY), and Whenever Wherever Dance Festival(Tokyo).
