In one flower there is a world.   In one moment there is an entirety.

To see Moeno Wakamatsu on stage is to experience an oscillation between solidity and fluidity, to experience a poetry of appearance and disappearance.

MOENO WAKAMATSU, born 1975 in Tokyo, in a house of a Jodoshu buddhist temple in Asakusa. At age 10, her family moved abroad to Canada then to the United States. From age 6 to 17, she was classically trained in piano, and later in pipe organ. After age 18, she moved on to plastic art and architecture and moved to New York City. She encountered dance at the age 19. She studied at the School of Merce Cunningham in New York. Soon after, she extensively became involved in the Feldenkrais method, and became a certified practitioner. In the same period, she became also much drawn to the work of several butoh artists. After graduating from The Cooper Union School of Architecture, she worked as an architect in New York City, while dancing and practicing the Feldenkrais Method. At age 27, she left the field of architecture to only pursue dance theatre as a solo artist. She presents her solo work and conducts workshops internationally. She is based in New York City and in Normandy, France.

" Make me a thing that neither lives nor dies..." (from The Metamorphoses by Ovid) Inspired by The Metamorphoses by Ovid, Project Ovid was first created in 2006 for The Boris Vian Foundation in Paris. The project was a collection of pieces -- "Dryope", "Orpheus," "Proserpina and Death", and "Lotus Sunlight" -- each piece based on a tale from The Metamorphoses.
