Hanako Hoshimi-Caines is a choreographer and dancer based in Montréal. She is committed to an emo-critical engagement to dance, choreography and philosophy as a way to see, feel and love better. And what she means by love is an ambiguous kind of knowledge that is necessarily embodied, transformative and involves time and intimacy with things.
Her solo and collaborative works have been shown in performance and music festivals as well as theaters in Canada, Germany, Sweden and Bulgaria. She has performed extensively with a number of artists such as Stephen Thompson and Andrew Tay, Maria Kefirova, Katie Ward, La 2eme Porte à gauche, Jacob Wren, Adam Kinner, Frédérick Gravel, Tanya Lukin-Linklater, José Navas, Louise-Michel Jackson and with the Cullberg Ballet (Stockholm) with Benoît Lachambre, Deborah Hay, William Forsythe (Human Writes), Tilman O’Donnell, Alexander Ekman and Jefta Van Dinther. She is currently finishing up a philosophy degree at Concordia University with a penchant for feminist ethics and performativity.
