Yumiko has brought her very unique teaching to us many times in person, and this is her third online class for us during pandemic. We all look forward to the days when she will come again in person. For this set of classes we explore a new idea, won’t you join us?

What is onomatopoeia? (the sound that is the movement, for example, yura yura , puka puka, Aun, papipupepo….)

The word onomatopoeia comes from the combination of two Greek words, one meaning ‘name’ and the other meaning ‘I’ make. So, literally, onomatopoeia means the name (or sound) I make. For example, splat! or boing! Both these words are onomatopoeic and they mean nothing more than what they sound like.

These sounds become both playful and useful tools to deepen and cultivate our body and sensorial awareness.

Belonging to a third generation of Butoh artists, Yumiko has developed a personal style of bodywork called Body Resonance, which integrates Butoh practice with features of Noguchi Taiso gymnastics and various other Asian training methods to help prepare the body to receive and transmit dance and inspirations. Body Resonance starts from the idea that the world, including our body and soul, consists of vibrational waves that create constant resonances like echoes. When we tune our body to that frequency, we receive images, feelings and sensations accordingly. For this to happen, we need first to shake off unnecessary tension. In effect, we make a white canvas of our body to paint new color on it. I teach this as neutralization, encouraging a close-to-zero state, scouring off rust and polishing antenna to catch waves from profound layers of the body. The transformations and concentrations of dancing break up the eggshell of form. They melt down the armor of our ego, allowing resonant memories to emerge from our cells that are floating in the primal liquid of time.

Yumiko Yoshioka pushes against the ground with the balls of her feet, facing us in a red tunic, with her head to the side, eyes and mouth open, and her braid pointing downward. Her arms dangle with gravity. Her shadow is a high contrast and behind her is a spray painted cement wall, with bright colors and basic shapes of blue, brown, and red.

Yumiko Yoshioka. A face with a hand like a claw above it. Her torso in front of a brick wall, in a black tuxedo jacket, bright pink/red lips, her chin and cheekbones jutting up and forward, slightly cross-eyed, she has a look of defiance, a bit smug, with a tight smile.
