Miyoko Urayama / born in Tokyo / living in Essen, Germany
As a performer, dancer and director, I experiment with all kinds of movements, objects, sounds and spaces, using elements of physical theatre and movement techniques of Japanese Butoh dance. Frequently, I transform everyday human behaviour into choreographed, physical actions to tell stories or create atmospheres, oscillating between the abstract and the concrete, infusing serious topics with humor to provide a wide range of experiences.
