  • Eiko will be leading her signature Delicious Movement Workshop at Movement Research (150 1st Avenue, New York, NY) on November 16 and 17, 2019 from 11:00am-4:00pm both days.

    Delicious Movement Workshops are designed for all people who love to move or who want to love to move with delicious feelings. You don't have to be a dancer to enjoy the experience. The workshops are emphatically noncompetitive and appropriate to all levels of training and ability. Eiko hopes each participant will develop lifelong pleasure in dancing any time, anywhere available to them, whether professionally or in their living room.

    The exercises employ images, body articulation, floor work, and largely slow movement. However, the aim of the workshop is not to teach these. Rather, the participants, through their personal digestion of the material and of the improvisation and nonchalant partnership, which supports it. All are encouraged to acquire personal taste and flexible discipline to suit their own moving body. For many participants, seeing movement intimately and being seen moving are a transformative experience, which brings a new appreciation of how "time is not even and space is not empty."
