Ana Rita Teodoro


Your Teacher Please

© Pi-Cheng Wang

Your teacher, please is a danced-conference where Ana Rita, while student, goes through the butô dance methods that were conveyed to her by Yoshito Ohno in her studio. With the gradual disappearance of the first generation of butô dancers, it’s becoming essential to return to their studios and collect their transmission methods, paying attention to the effects caused in the body and in the presence of the students. By thinking of dance transmission, we look to restore the dynamic processes of butô fabrication, to better retrieve from an aesthetic that looks stuck in time and without a restored poetic background.
