Performance

We present three solos created and performed by Eduardo Fukushima, choreographer, dancer and teacher based in Sao Paolo since 2004. His works have been presented in Brazil, Portugal, Argentina, Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, England, Italy, Cyprus and Taiwan. In 2012 he appeared at the World Event Young Artists Festival in Nottingham (UK). In 2012 and 2013 he was selected to take part as a protégé (student) on the programme of the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative and worked with Lin Hwai-min, artistic director of the Cloud Gate Dance Theatre in Taiwan.

Since 2005 he has practiced Oriental body techniques such as seitai-ho from Japan and chi-kung from China. He has also studied classical ballet, Brazilian dance, capoeira angola, release technique, contact improvisation, Indian dance and artistic gymnastics.

Homen torto (Crooked Man)

Homen torto is an uncomfortable piece, a non-symmetrical dance that suggests a weak body with the vigour of a strong one. It insists on bringing together opposites such as hardness and softness, weakness and strength, being close and far from the audience, balance and imbalance, fluid and fitful movements, the inside and the outside of the body.

Crooked Man was created following a yearlong mentorship with Cloud Gate Dance founder Lin Hwai-min as part of the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative. In this performance, Eduardo is accompanied by live electronic music created specially by Tom Monteiro to accompany the movement.

“Fukushima’s mesmerizingly odd solo dance performance… will not be forgotten in a hurry.” (Financial Times)
