Sumi Komo: Artistic Director/ Komo Danceworks, Alexander Technique Teacher/Trainer, Austin
Sumi Komo
Sumi Komo graduated from Sarah Lawrence college with a BA in Dance and Philosophy and then went to NYC to train with Merce Cunningham, Carolyn Brown, Albert Reid.
After teaching and performing in England and Wales for 10 years, Ms. Komo returned to Boulder, Colorado where she taught at Naropa University and the University of Colorado as well as developing workshops for the Colorado Dance Festival on Alexander Technique and dance. For the last 3 decades she has found ways in both performance and teaching to interweave dance, movement, meditation and martial arts to create subtlety and sensitivity to moment to moment awareness. Ms. Komo is currently the director of the ATMA (R) Centre where she teaches the Alexander technique privately and runs a Three Year Internationally approved training program for teachers of the Alexander technique.
Don't want to forget, when Sumi danced stage right through the early sections it was an extra layer that gave the dance in progress a sense of wholeness. Of course it also pointed straight to your solo at the end, so it was a good tie-together. That dance also framed the rest of the dance onstage, and gave it a sense of Sumi being the narrator, or telling the myth/dance as it happened, or imagining it.
Sumi teaches Cunningham technique and Indeterminancy... She trained and danced in NYC with Merce Cunningham and members of the Cunningham lineage. She has an MA in Dance from the University of Oregon and her thesis work was on the process of improvisation as it opens us to creativity and therapeutic benefit. Most recently she has had the wonderful opportunity to be inspired and mentored by Deborah HAy whose innovative methods of dance performance and practice have opened a door for Sumi to encounter a much more honest and awake dance creativity and performance.
In February of 2012 Sumi and 3 other dance performance artists, who were in SDCP 2011 with Deborah Hay in Findhorn Scotland will be performing adaptations of Deborah Hay's choreography I Think Not in Austin at Mercury Hall, sponsored by Dance Umbrella.

Her focus is on awareness of the harmonious and graceful weaving of these various practices through the heart of movement. She originally trained and danced professionally in New York City with Merce Cunningham, Carolyn Brown and others in the Cunningham lineage. An accident led her to explore movement/dance from an inner awareness sensation and perception through subtle unraveling's of the body being. She integrates dance with Yoga, T'ai Chi Chuan, Alexander Technique and Zen meditation training. She has developed a movement form that calls forth the core of stillness into movement, meditation, and light in motion.
