MOENO WAKAMATSU, born 1975 in Tokyo, in a house of a Jodoshu buddhist temple in Asakusa. At age 10, her family moved abroad to Canada then to the United States. From age 6 to 17, she was classically trained in piano, and later in pipe organ. After age 18, she moved on to plastic art and architecture. She installed herself in New York City. She encountered dance at the age 19. She studied at the School of Merce Cunningham in New York. Soon after, she extensively became involved in the Feldenkrais Method, and became a certified practitioner. In the same period, she became also much drawn to the work of several specific buto artists. After graduating from The Cooper Union School of Architecture, she worked as an architect in New York City, while dancing and practicing the Feldenkrais Method. At age 27, she left the field of architecture to only pursue dance theater as a solo artist.
She presents her solo work and conducts workshops internationally. She is based in New York City and in Normandy France.
Her work exists outside of the art of ideas or concepts, and aims for direct communication in intensified time and space. A manifestation of an expression that is beyond physical movement, her work often perplexes ordinary dance categorization.
‘I wish to suspend within the moment where inner desire meets outer phenomena.’ (Moeno Wakamatsu)
