Shinichi Iova-Koga Talks about His Workshop

19 Jun

Next Sunday (the 26th) from 2-5pm, FURYFactory presents a workshop with the great Shinichi Iova-Koga of inkBoat.  We asked Mr. Iova-Koga to give us a taste of what’s to come.

 

About Shinichi Iova-Koga

Shinichi Iova-Koga examines, dissects and intentionally blurs the line between various media to uproot and communicate stories contained within the body. He founded inkBoat in 1998 and has been recognized with 3 “Izzie” awards, 1 “Goldie,” and a “Top 25” in Dance Magazine.  Shinichi has engaged in long term and extensive work with Yuko Kaseki, Cassie Terman, Yumiko Yoshioka, Do Theatre and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum.  Single project collaborations include work with Ko Murobushi, AXIS Dance Company, Minako Seki, Degenerate Art Ensemble, ODC Dance Company, ROVA Saxophone Quartet and Anna Halprin.

In December 2011, he and Dohee Lee are featured in a new inkBoat production at ODC Theater.  Shinichi is currently an Artist in Residence at ODC Theater, SF, teaches dance at Mills College in Oakland, and is the father of Zoë and husband to Dana.
