Hanako Hoshimi-Caines is engaged with dance, performance-making 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 embodied, transformative and involves time and intimacy with things. Hanako has performed for/collaborated with Stephen Thompson and Andrew Tay, Maria Kefirova, Louise-Michel Jackson, Katie Ward, Jacob Wren, Adam Kinner, Frédérick Gravel, Tanya Lukin-Linklater, José Navas and, through the Cullberg Ballet (Stockholm), with Benoît Lachambre, Deborah Hay, William Forsythe and Jefta Van Dinther. Her independent and collaborative works have been shown in Canada and internationally. Her latest work titled Radio III, in collaboration with Zoë Poluch and Elisa Harkins, premiered at the MAI (Montréal, arts interculturels) in June 2019.
