SOAK is a festival presenting a stream of AcTS and training in theater, butoh, dance, music, and performance art every spring-summer season. SOAK is molded by LEIMAY, the interdisciplinary ensemble and producing organization behind the acclaimed New York Butoh Festival. SOAK takes place at LEIMAY’s home, CAVE, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
SOAK broadens the perceptions of our artists and audiences with work that is experimental, rigorous, and thought-provoking. The festival showcases finished and in-progress work by international, local, and fellow artists, and blends them together in a concoction that inspires audiences, fuels the artists, and stimulates the community surrounding LEIMAY’s activities.
Performances include work by LEIMAY Fellows Lucy Kerr, Kathleen Kelley, Danielle Russo,Alexa Salamé, Terra Incognita Theater, Timothy Scott, Nicolas Norena, Hannah Gross, and Kat Brown.
In addition, international, local, and LEIMAY memebers performances by Moeno Wakamatsu, Gio Kusannagi, Zack Fuller, Peter Sciscioli, Emily Smith, and Derek DiMartini. During the LEIMAY Block Party, additional acts such as Jan Miko, Mario Galeano, Angeli, and Jack Leahy, will also join us this SOAK for various pop-up and durational performances.
LEIMAY LUDUS during SOAK features LEIMAY LUDUS Summer Intensive with Artistic Director Ximena Garnica, and four LEIMAY LUDUS Labs in voice, eurhythmy, dance, theatre, and butoh with guest teachers Moeno Wakamatsu, Gio Kusanagi, Zack Fuller, and Peter Sciscioli.
