Jordan Rosin is a physical theatre artist, teacher, and movement coach. Based primarily in butoh, he also draws on yoga, clowning, gymnastics, and martial arts to create choreography and movement with profound and universal resonance.

For The Ume Group, credits include co-creator/performer of FACET (Hollywood Fringe), creator/performer of "Fluid", performer in "SHINKA-evolution", writer/producer of BUTOH ELECTRA (Irondale Center, FringeNYC, Syracuse University) & associate producer of BALDY (FringeNYC, Hollywood Fringe, United Solo). He received his B.F.A. in Drama from Syracuse University and has also trained at the Tepper Center for Careers in Theatre, as well as with numerous independent teachers of butoh. He regularly documents his rehearsal-room discoveries, speaking about the relationship between butoh, gymnastics, and ensemble theatre here on on his video blog, A Sense of Ensemble, www.jordanrosin.com
Jordan's technique as an artist is closely related to his philosophy as a teacher. His collaborative art-making approach is premised on an uncanny ability to cultivate and influence the creative energy of others. He has over 3 years of experience as a practitioner and teacher of butoh dance. In addition, his intensive research in yoga, gymnastics and physical theatre traditions has prepared him well to lead workshops or conduct consultation on a variety of topics.
