Mari Osanai’s workshops focus on Noguchi Taiso combined with the influences of her early training in Tai Chi, Western dance methods, traditional folk dance in Aomori, Japan (her birthplace), and the connection between one’s thoughts and sensation of weight. Osanai’s approach to movement research and exploration begins with a heightened awareness of gravity’s influence on the body and the body’s connection with the center of the earth. Exercises in the workshop train the body to embrace its weight and heighten its sensitivity to move from its most relaxed and receptive state. Starting with images, such as washing the body with water, air, sunlight, workshop participants will discover the body’s vital energies rooted in its inherent hydrodynamics. Movement and form result as participants ingest imagery inside their bodies and allow the changes to shift the body’s interior.

Mari Osanai was born in Aomori (north top of main Island in Japan) Japan. She was trained in Classical Ballet and Modern dance at an early age and later studied jazz dance Tai Chi and Noguchi Taiso.

Noguchi Taiso and its philosophy and theory had a great influence on her creations. Her unique and complex movements are created interweaving these techniques as well as taking classes with Mr. Hironobu Oikawa.
