Carlotta Ikeda will be inviting performing artists such as dancers, actors, circus performers and street artists, so opening a door onto her art: Butoh. In this way she hopes to share her experience and, in so doing, develop artistic encounters, encourage fellow artists in their creation, or more simply, exchange while contributing to artistic careers.
The workshop will be held on a fairly regular basis in those cities in France and in Europe where Carlotta Ikeda is touring with the ARIADONE company. Wherever possible Carlotta Ikeda’s International Workshop will be held in the same venues as the artistic projects of the ARIADONE company.
By the end of 2009 it is our aim that the Workshop, though staying mobile, should take up residence in one place (probably in Bordeaux’s area). This residency will make it possible to create shows based on the investigations and encounters made in the workshop, but also allow Carlotta Ikeda, if she wishes, to invite those artists encountered in the course of her travelling workshop to present their works during a performance.
