Elaine LeMieux and Sara Z in the studio Bim Bom. Work in Progress showing coming up November 12. This weekly investigation produces periodic voice moove classes, performances, and continued research into breath, stillness, voice, and playful exchange.

Rooted in physical investigations of trauma, resilience, and hybrids, our collaborative artworks challenge capitalism both subtlety and overtly. Our dedication to art is a practice of spiritual, fundamental, and collective proportions. Curiosity guides our trajectory, and our work is a disruptive tool to keep digging and opening our senses of belonging together. We disarm and empower our audiences through sound and movement primarily. The scale ranges from 1-1 intimate settings to group public interactions, and the full spectrum in between. Forever a work in progress.
We convene national and international teaching artists with Chicago art makers across genres in the independent and fringe arenas (including dance, butoh, poetry, film, experimental music). We collaborate with artists around the globe to create opportunities for workshops, performances, and conversations about the body, for the body. Butoh Curious / Butoh Chicago.
