Lashbrook performs with an “electric” and “life-giving” connection (The Fringe Review, John Hinton).
Mayumi Lashbrook is a mixed race Japanese Canadian settler from Tkaronto who seeks to expose, challenge, and rectify systems of oppression by creating innovative, introspective and inclusive dance theatre. Her primary practises span performance, choreography, education and Artistic Direction. She performs as a way to find connection, commonality and vulnerability in others. Mayumi graduated from University X’s Theatre Performance Dance program, on the Dean’s list (previously known as Ryerson University). She is the Co-Artistic Director of Aeris Körper, a facilitator of Dreamwalker Dance’s Conscious Bodies methodology and the Communications and Outreach Manager for the Canadian Dance Assembly. Most recently she received choreographic mentorship from Peggy Baker, was resident in the L’AiR Arts (Paris, France) intercultural artistic exchange, and was a commissioned choreographer in CanAsian’s GRIT: Short Dances with dramaturgy from Nina Lee Aquino. Her different roles are all encompassing and overlapping. This enables her to approach projects and communities with openness, curiosity, excellence, and with deep satisfaction.
