In SoulBody II, participants will deepen their awareness of the mind body connection with the exploration of imagery, development of the witness, and strengthening of the right brain and its link to consciousness. The workshop also aims to develop the body’s center, range of motion, and use of momentum. Wear clothing you can move in.
Cheryl Flaharty is a visionary artist whose work seeks to unveil the mystery of the human spirit. Raised in Hawaii, she received a B.A. in Dance from the University of Hawaii and performed as a principle dancer with Betty Jones’ and Fritz Ludin’s Dances We Dance Company. Flaharty’s choreographic vision has been equally influenced by her work with butoh master Poppo Shiraishi, with whom she performed as a principle dancer in New York from 1985-1990, in his Go Go Boys company. Ms. Flaharty’s experience with these two differing dance forms has brought forth the unique synthesis of Eastern and Western movement and spirituality that her IONA Contemporary Dance Theatre is known for.
- Over the past twenty years, Flaharty has been a leader in the Hawai’i dance community, bringing the Japanese butoh dance form to the islands, creating new audiences for dance, and inspiring countless performers and creators throughout the state. She is the recipient of six Hawaii State Dance Council choreographic awards, the State Foundation on Culture and the Arts’ Individual Artists Fellowship, and the Baciu Award for cutting edge work. http://www.iona360.com/
