I will, you will, we will. Will it?

Soi3, a collaborative duo, started a dialogue confronting their views on performance in 2009. They work collaboratively with creatives coming from backgrounds of dance as well as other mediums, looking for mutual influences between fields of work. They have been consistently exhibiting in group and solo shows internationally, participated to artist residency programs in Europe and US, and are currently active producing work and teaching their individual research    nomadically. Tashi is an Amsterdam based performance artist/choreographer/theatre maker. He studied Contemporary Arts (BA) at Nottingham Trent University (1997-2001 Nottingham UK), Dance and Choreography as a guest student at School for New Dance Development (2002-2003 Amsterdam NL) and Performance Research at DasArts (2004-2007 Amsterdam NL). After his first Butoh experiences in 1997 with Kazuo Ohno and Kim Itoh in Japan, Iwaoka practiced Butoh based bodywork for over 10 years. Currently he is practising Budo, Japanese martial arts, and working on finding the nucleus of human expression and connection in relation to other movement skills he has learnt. He has shown his work in several countries in Europe. Iwaoka is a founding member of Ehkä-production, an international collective of independent performance and dance makers, based in Turku, Finland.
