Maho is working as one of the Associated Artists at the Culture Push for 2023 and beyond.
She questions these themes through researching, conversations, and creating with Culture Push.
What is participation in the context of performance?
What is the space between ritual and performance?
What does the tea ceremony mean now as an art form and a ritual?
Differences and similarities between private and public in Japanese and other cultures
Rediscovering Asian culture in the US and Reclaiming the complexity of cultural influence, etc. etc.
Cleaning as act of Care 大掃除という名のパフォーマンスリチュアル
Please join our [Emptying Ritual]
12/16/2022 at 7:30 pm (EST) 日本時間17日朝9時at DPA @d_media_p_mom_a live and I.G.live, Sake to follow at DPA,
Inspired by the Japanese custom of end-of-year cleaning, we'll find tangible and intangible things we don't necessarily need anymore and clear them together.
It's a celebration of our changing moments and emptying space for the new journey.
It’s a cleaning ritual, so if you wish, clean your desired space with us via Instagram live while we perform the cleaning ritual. Also, it’ll be nice to imagine what you wish to release at the end of 2022 (creating your “emptying wishlist”), instead of wanting something as usual wishlist.
We invite you at DPA, garden level (dm me for the address) or DPA Instagram @d_media_p_mom_a

Maho Ogawa performs in Athena Kokoronis's work with wonderful artists on June 9 2018 at Dance and Process at The Kitchen.
This event features new works and is the culmination of a ten-week group process of sharing work and feedback. Facilitated by Moriah Evans and Yve Laris Cohen, and featuring work by Lauren Bakst, NIC Kay, Athena Kokoronis, and Angie Pittman.
Initiated in 1995, Dance and Process is The Kitchen's longest running series. Dance and Process stages an interrogation of methods of choreographic and dance practice, whereby artists challenge default structures in their own work and the field at large.
June 8, 8pm: Lauren Bakst and NIC Kay
June 9, 6pm: Athena Kokoronis and Angie Pittman
Tickets: $15 General ($12 for Members) for a single performance. $20 for both.
On the afternoon of June 9, between 3 and 6pm, join Athena Kokoronis of Domestic Performance Agency and guests for cooking, food sampling, and shopping from an array of Domestic Performance Agency items including the launch of DPA's first cookbook published in collaboration with Yonkers International Press. FREE.
Starting in 2013, Minimum Movement Catalog (www.suisoco.com/choreography/minimum-movement-catalog/) currently consists of 83 movement instructions, an ongoing study that archives the simplest movements of the human body and compares them in different media and structures. This movement-based research aims to reveal clarity in mechanisms and systems of body movements with the goal of finding objective methods of executing movement.

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。
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).
