LUDUS is the regular practice of the LEIMAY Ensemble. It explores methods to physically condition the body and develop a sensitivity to the “in-between space. LEIMAY LUDUS seeks to stimulate imagination, enrich creativity, and expand notions of body, space, and time by challenging euro-centric dance and performance training frameworks. LEIMAY LUDUS is based on principles developed by LEIMAY’s Artistic Co-Director Ximena Garnica through nearly two decades of her study of Butoh, Noguchi Taiso, and Experimental Theater.
In our LUDUS practice, we cultivate an ambiguous body and in-between-space, and the force which surfaces dismantles our notions of self and belonging, dissolves social norms and systems of beliefs, and compels us to connect more deeply to one another. In our creative process, projects and works, we do not detach the object of art from the community it is born out of. We are invested in the entanglement from which culture and art emerge, and value relationality, collaboration, and resource sharing as primary to our praxis.
