Motion Qualia is a movement method that Kudo created.
By dis-engaging with own equilibrium, your brain senses that you are getting in an off-balance mode. Your brain immediately reacts to move your body, in order to bring you back to a safe place. Motion Qualia, uses this reflex to connect, to the movement. With this approach, you can broaden the range and height of movement. Of course, there is an abundance of approaches to the floor and there is a need for floor techniques. The purpose is that these natural beings, create inevitability in every movement.


Satoshi Kudo is a Japanese dancer and a choreographer based in Stockholm, Sweden. After his professional experience in Tokyo and New York, he moved his base to Stockholm since 1998. He has worked for Ohad Naharin, Eastman/Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Claire Parsons, Danish Dance Theatre, and others. He has also worked as assistant choreographer and rehearsal director for Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui from 2006 to 2013 and for The Royal Swedish Ballet including Mats Ek, Johan Inger, Alexander Ekman and Sharon Eyal in 2015 and 2017. Kudo started his choreographic career since 2003. The work contains a physical approach with “Motion Qualia”, a method Kudo created. This method provokes one’s amygdala that affects not only physical but it does one’s emotional expression.
