Your conclusion can be one sentence only which summarises your main points. But make sure you have a clear opinion — this is not a discussion essay. But I have a question about personal pronouns. Can we use personal pronouns in our essay. In current scenario , environment remains always in top of headlines as it is setting a danger alarm for every country. At primafacie, nowdays people think that everything should be compromisable for luxury as they are forgetting that they are living in a detrimental risk.
Everyperson in the society has their own individual vehicles which are used for even very small purposes. In addition, for enhancing the technolgy industries are working 24 hours in avery transforming way as they are harming our nature in very critical way. In account of that, they are also cutting trees for the raw materials and promoting deforestation.
Smoke from factories polluting air day by day which effect wild life also. Interesting thing is that he can write complex essay with uncomman vocabulary, grammar structure, strong points What can main reason be for this. Vocab and grammar range are only part of the scoring. Accuracy, punctuation and spelling are also vital. You are marked on main points but you are also marked on your method of developing them, linking them, presenting a clear position etc.
There is much more involved in getting band 7: Both include first advantages and then drawback??? Opinion Essays are about presenting a clear position and explaining it. You can see my clear opinion: I divide the individual and society — one is positive and the other is negative. It is a clear opinion.
Hi Liz, may I ask whether I can argue that these sites are detrimental to both individuals and society? You get band 9 when you use excellent language without errors. This means using appropriate language for the question given.
It is not your essay agreeing, it is you agreeing. Be clear and be direct. Failure to present YOUR opinion will result in a low score. Or do we need to use only one through the entire essay. Always read the instructions — do you need to give both or do you need to choose?
Hi liz, I just wondering for agree and disagree instruction, so is it okay if we agree in half case and disagree in other case, for example your essay. Hi Liz, Could you please reply to this doubt as i also have the same question. They say that the only way to increase recycling is for governments to make it a legal requirement.
Can I write an essay on the necessity of law in the first paragraph and talk about the importance of educating people the benefits of recycling in the second paragraph? Your whole essay must answer the question: Each body paragraph will contain one reason for your opinion.
Always follow the instructions fully. Hi Liz Greetings from Pakistan. I have date of exam 29th April Thanks I am waiting Best Wishes. This website contains over pages of tips, advice, information and practice lessons — start opening pages and learning!
Firstly, I want to thank you for putting up this website. I will be taking my exam this May and I find your website very useful and easy to understand. I know it is a linking word used to contrast but from the paragraph above, is it applicable to use however? But my advice to you is to only use as you know how in the test. During your test, it is not time to be creative or try to use words in an unfamiliar way.
Every mistake you make will be noticed by the examiner. I have a question regarding essays in the academic writing task 2 and examples being used. I recently attended a workshop where the person giving the class said that we can give an example to substantiate our point, even if it is fictional it must be relevant and believable.
You can choose to use examples or not use examples. Some students find it easiest to write paragraphs which contain examples and other students prefer to explain their opinion differently. It makes no difference to your score. Some teachers fail to point out that their techniques are just recommendations often good recommendations , but not actual requirements.
Your website is very useful and had brought about a lot of positive impact on my performance. Concerning the essay above and reorganizing the problem statement in the main paragraph. Kindly educate me more on this. Thank you for the information. I would like to ask something regarding expressions in the introduction part of writing task 2. What do you think of it? If your opinion is asked for, you must give it clearly: I think or In my opinion. Your thesis statement is about presenting your main points or position — it is not about writing the instructions — the examiner has the instructions.
Hi Liz, I am bit confused with opinion essays and agree disagree opinion essay. There is no difference between them. They are all opinion essays. But now also i have some problems in writing. I used simple words and always write in simple sentences. Hello Liz I am giving my test on 18th March. So I need strong advise about the writing task 2. Do we have to touch both agree and disagree point? If it is an opinion essay, you give your opinion only. If it is a discussion essay, you give both sides.
I have advanced writing task 2 lessons to purchase if you need more help: First of all, I would like to say that thanks for making such blog. Definitely, such information is really very helpful for an individual like me to prepare the meticulous details of writing task. Man can be equated with the spider but of a different kind, he weaves his web for himself. It is undeniable fact that technology has proven to be the biggest asset for a human being. However, the equally true point is a man is casting the graves for himself by introducing the newer technologies.
I fervently agree with the statement that there is a big negative effect on individual and also on the societal front because of social networking sites. There are certain reasons to endorse my opinion which is carried out in the subsequent paragraphs.
The most widespread reason for the negative effect is that it is adversely affecting the career of individual, specifically, children, working professionals, students because these group of individuals has more affinity to take latest updates on websites or making new friends but in a fashion of doing so, they forget the fundamental duties which are to do studies or concentrate on project work as applicable.
Besides this, the rise in the online fraud is also rising exponentially and one of the major reason is the habit of making anonymous friends online through such social world. Hence, they fall into trap or commits such henious crime which makes an inevitable damage on their image.
In other words, people have completely transformed themselves into introvert personality and they stopped aiding people at the time help as they are mostly indulge with the people on networking sites. Therefore, it would not be wrong to say that people have become more callous and selfish. Though, these social websites have made people connected to friends or relatives who live at a distance but the bigger picute of its ill effects cannot be negleted.
Before the problem get deeeply ingrained, we should nip it in the bud. The goverment should take firm steps to ban such social websites. Even better, if people should made aware for the implications of using the facebok, twitter or any such websites. Your introduction alone is around 90 words instead of 40 to I highly suggest you think of getting my opinion essay lesson to learn the right techniques: I have couple of doubts. Do we have to write opposing view in the first paragraph or in the next paragraph??
I would mean that If we write On the one hand, do we write our view or opposing view. No, it is asking you to give your opinion. Your whole essay will explain your opinion.
It is not a discussion essay. In the essay above, it is asking if you agree that Facebook has a negative impact on individuals and society. So, this question contains two aspects to give your opinion about: In recent years children spending more time in computer games and less in sports activities. What do you think this leads to a positive or negative development?
It asks if you think it is positive OR negative. Thank you so much, Liz. I have written for both positive as well as negative. How much will I score for this? See the band score requirements: It will only affect your score for one of the marking criteria — the other three will be unaffected.
I suggest you purchase my advanced lessons to understand everything about essay writing in task 2: Could I answer it by stating the negative impacts on both individuals and society then its advantages on both individuals and society in the 2nd and 3rd body paragraphs? Though it seems it is going to be more complicated if i do it this way. I just want to know if the style used in the model essay above is the only way to do it.
Thank you and I hope to hear from you. You need to state clearly: Do you think it is positive or negative for individuals? Do you think it is positive or negative for society? In my model essay, I said it was positive for individuals but negative for society. Always make your opinion directly and give a clear position. Like fb is good in some aspect and also bad in other.
Explaining this will make my essay discussion one? Is it ok to give diplomatic answers? For discussion essay, we talk about both positive and negative For opinion essay, can we talk about both? In that case, you will explain this specifically. Be specific and be clear. The more focused you are, the higher score you. Go for the one-sided approach. But you will get a lower score if your balanced view becomes a discussion essay without a clear position. I need an advice from u.
Or in easy way, could I put unvalid data on the essay? I think data can make my essay will be great. But my greatest worry is that the examiner will check the data. Sure you can add data to examples if you want. Task 2 is an essay, not a report. You will get a better result using rich language than using numbers. The examiner will not check the data. You are not marked on data in task 2.
Is it possible Liz? I am really struggling with this, I highly appreciate your response. Sure you can have only 4 paragraphs in total. If you need training, see my advanced lessons: Thanks for the dedicated work. Couple of doubts,kindly clear me. Is this sentence correct for task 1? Could the answers start with capital letters for reading and listening.?
In the exam, will the examiner collect the answer sheet after each section gets over? Thanking you in advance, Geetha. Hi liz, i have taken ielts twice, both the times i got a score of 6. First time i got 5 bands in writing and second time 5. I really want to improve my score plz suggest me.
If you have an opinion essay, the entire essay explains why you agree or why you disagree. From beginning to end of the essay. Hello Liz, Hope you are doing good. I have a test on 29th of October. It is requested to please answer as soon as possible. You are asked which outweighs which. In other words, which is more important. So, you are asked to explain your opinion: When do we need to put both sides, advantages and disadvantages? I thought we only need to put the disadvantages when the question asked to what extent do we agree to the negative effect of the social media.
If you have a balanced view, then you explain details of your view which might include ideas from each side used to present your opinion. Or you can choose one side and explain why you support only that side. You decide your own opinion. You will be marked on how you present your opinion and the relevancy of your view, not what your opinion is.
Is it important to give examples in both body paragraphs in task 2? I always give one example in body 1. It is your choice how to support your ideas. Giving examples is one way and you decide how often to do that. Just wanting to demonstrate a personal or rather cliche strategy for achieving good scores in each section. Writing — bE ultra clear on what side u choose to be for the argument —- it should be clear and conclude with the same single minded answer..
Speaking — throw good vocabs …. Brilliant results and great tips! Think about sharing your results and tips on this page: Is complex writing and cool vocabulary are the only things that can help me in getting 9 band score. You write your opinion and nothing more. It does not ask you discuss both sides. If you agree, then your whole essay explains why. If you disagree, your whole essay explains that. There are school of thought that impact of news media is a negative development.
In my opinon , it enlightens and widen the horizon in a positive way. Hi Liz, Thanks for this useful sample. I have a very basic query regarding task 2. Will it not count towards reducing the score? This means you decide what examples to use or you can decide not to use examples.
There are many different ways to illustrate and explain a point rather than giving direct examples. I just want to clarify something about the essay.
Furthermore,is it possible if impacts on the individuals and societies can be wrapped up into one body paragraph then on the next body paragraph is another argument for those two? You need to read the introduction more carefully. Here is the opinion: You can see that it is balanced approach which claims that it is positive for individuals but negative for communities. I have taken test 4 times. My vocabulary is definitely good. But Still I am not able to get good score in writing. I read a lot.
I can write complex sentences. But when I Try to write an essay. I am really not sure what my problem is. At times my essays looks silly.

I just wanted to inquire about how to structure my response when i am about to write a band 9 essay.
Thank you in advance for your response. Absolutely not if you want band 9. You must use natural language, not phrases and sentences you have learned from an academic writing website or book. Never learn sentences to put in your essay. Each essay is written uniquely depending on the topic. I strongly suggest you get at least one of my advanced lessons in writing task 2 so you understand not only the techniques but what IELTS is all about in terms of how it functions as a language test: In my opinion and through my reading of this issue i strongly disagree and i want change this idea.
However, social proggrame maybe lead to lose our brain function. To get a good score you will need to reduce your grammar and vocabulary errors which are currently at band 5.
First of all take my salam. You can have four or five body paragraphs. I suggest you get my advanced lessons if you need to understand further: My vocabulary is not so good. So what would you suggest me?

If you need more help, see my advanced writing task 2 lessons: Also read the band score descriptions page because it contains tips for improving: I do believe that I had discussed both views in the essay with the use of good vocabulary and provided valid examples.
Would this significantly lower my score band? Hi Liz, Thank you very much for all your efforts in answering our queries.
One of my friends have referred your website. I have gone through some of the modules so far and I feel it is very informative indeed.
Especially the reading part!! Looking forward for your updates. See my advanced writing task 2 lessons: See the Opinion Essay Tutorial. All the best Liz. First of all, I hope that you are having a blast on your time off. Secondly, thank you so much for answering all our queries! You are heaven sent! I am assuming the reason you use past perfect tense throughout the whole essay is because the topic is in past perfect tense. It is still happening, right? Hi, i need to know how to success in my ielts exam in writing task 2.
Can you please give me some tips and techniques? Hi Liz some times I confuse in detect the topic in opinion essay, for example in this question: Due to the development and rapid expansion of supermarkets in some countries, many small, local business are unable to compete. Some people think that the closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities. I have confused if the topic is inability of local business to compete and other information is supporting or it is closure of local business will bring about the death of local communities , so how can I identify the main topic in such question?
Do I have to write a title heading? And Thank you so much from videos on Youtube to this website! This confused me a lot. Is paraphrasing the question as introduction is a must? What if I find it easier to have a hook for my introduction rather than paraphrasing the question, will it be wrong? Hi Liz, In conclusion,you gave solution to this opinion. Is it necessary to give solution in agree disagree essay?
The problem with me is that when I practice for speaking test in front of mirror or someone else, ideas and sentences generated in my mind but unable to pick proper word sometimes. This creats a long pause. You will need to develop your English until you are familiar with speaking English and have a range of vocabulary readily available to use. The only thing you can do is practice, practice and practice. Go through all common topics again and again until your answers come quicker and more naturally.
How could i give you so you can read and give me band for that. I will be very thank full to you. Hii I have a question for u. Can u plzz tell me that is it really important to wear formal clothes for speaking??.
Is it rwally gonna effect my bands?? It is just an average beginning to an essay which is normal to use. Hi Liz, I was wondering what your opinion is about extreme claims. In legal and academic writing, these types of claims are taught to be avoided as a result i. If you have an extreme view, you use strong language.
In opinion essays or any essay that requires you to present a view, you choose how to phrase your ideas. Can you please explain me about this particular topic: Compare the advantages and disadvantages of three of the following as media for communicating information. State which you consider to be the most effective.
Does it mean I have to choose three of the above mentioned and compare its advantages? I am a bit confused. Thank in advance for you consideration. Yes, you need to choose three from the list and explain the advs and disadvs compared to the others.
For example, TV has the advantage of being visual and therefore has more impact than the radio. Please see the lesson about writing an introduction on the main writing task 2 page. All my tips and lessons are contained there. Can you see the red bar on this website? All the words link to main pages — just click them. Both are used nowadays: Here, the question was to what extent did you agree with the given statement.
And it seems you used the balanced approach in your thesis statement, which is fine, because, you went on to support the statement till the end of your eassy. Now, under your agree disagree eassy model, you totally agree with the statement and went on to support your statement, which is understable and clear.
But, cant we use this balanced approach in the agree or disagree eassy type? Any opinion essay can have a balanced view. Some issues incline more towards one side than balanced views. Writing task 1 has no conclusion. Please read my lessons on the main pages because these questions have already been answered and explained.
If your word count is too low, you will receive a lower score. You need to wait and see. Hi Liz, The comment said is the number of words for those who targeting for band 6,7 and above.
What are the acceptable amount of words that is acceptable, the instruction says at least Please review all my lessons and tips on essay writing. Here is the page about essay length: Let me share my confusion about the essay. Thus, the point is discuss only negative impacts not the positive sides of them. On the contrary of that, we see the author gives her views in favour of SNS. Could we consider such answer as a proper one to the task? Please make sure you understand this before you do your test.
Yes, this is band 9. I appreciate good proof readers. My typing is not good. If I simplify it it says: I always see it used when you present an opposite opinion or you want to broaden the subject. Am I missing something? Hi, I would like to know if for an opinion essay like one above do we have to write counter arguments. And if it says to what extend do you agree or disagree do can we present both sides and take one stand or can we take 2 stands. The instructions do not ask you to discuss both sides.
It asks what you think and nothing more. Just follow the instructions. Hello Liz, hope you are a having a good day. Can you please explain me, which is correct or if i am wrong or mistaken about it. It is not a new main point or a new idea.
It is a final comment which is a suggestion. This topic is about the positive and negative effects of social media, my comment is a suggestion for the future — not a new main point.

Governments should provide housing for those who cannot afford. To what extent do you agree? Hi Liz Why you are discussing both positive and negative sides in opinion essay? Can you do that? Because the essay question is about negative impacts of two different things: So, I think it is positive for individuals and negative for society. This is clear positive and answers the essay question fully. Hi Liz, …But, if your english is not that strong, then i think it is best to go with one side of the statement-that is, by agreeing totally or disagreeing completely, what do you think?
You can still get a high score with a one-sided approach. Dear Liz , We are all so grateful to all your precious tips and recommendations. Please check my introduction for this topic and guide me for my possible mistakes. Regarding the growing dominance of the social networking as a modern way for human relationships , it could be seen as a controversial issue whether they are useful for both individuals and society or destructive.
This essay aims to elaborate various sights towards this argument and demonstrate a clear position. Please read this notice at the top of my blog which has been there for many months: Thank you so much for your beneficial website.
I have taken IELTS exams several times, however, I could not achieve a bad score of over 6 in all of them in writing, providing that my score in speaking was 7. My English teachers believe that my writing level is high and I have should scored 7 and above. The problem you face is your level of English. Your English contains too many mistakes to get band score 7. You must develop your English if you wish for a higher score. I am concerned about the proverbs and famous sayings that are sometimes part of statement given to us.
Your website is super helpful and informative for those of us who aim for a high band score in the IELTS. Thank you for taking your time to publish all these sample essays! In fact, it is good that you are still talking when the examiner stops you at 2 mins. It shows that you have strong fluency to give a long answer.
A long essay also means you might include more grammar and vocabulary errors which will also lower your score. Hello I have a couple of questions: Always check where the full stop is. Note that you have to produce a legitimate ID or ticket. All concerns asked in the first part have to do with subjects you recognize with.
All Children should study a foreign language in school starting in the earliest grade. To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement? Give reasons for your answers and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience. Learning foreign language at primary class has long been a debatable issue among parents and educational experts. In my opinion, i agree that children, who learn a language other than their mother tongue, will have more opportunities in life.
However, imposing such policy in an educational system can have certain drawbacks. Children, who study a foreign language in primary class, will benefit from this effort later when they grow up, as it will open their doors for foreign universities. For example, in Mauritius, parents encourage their children to learn German language, so that later, they can be granted a seat in reputable German Universities, which required reasonable knowledge of German language. In addition, Pedagogue and other educational experts argue that learning foreign language at an early age is much more effective than in the adolescence period.
On the other hand, it is common knowledge that not all children possess the same intellectual abilities for learning grammar and vocabularies of a new language, exposed to them. The mother-tongue of Mauritian children is creole language. Various teachers have observed that Candidates, at primary level, tend to use creole vocabularies in their French essays. Moreover, certain countries may face an increase in their educational budget expenditure, as additional staffs dispensing foreign language education , will have to be recruited.
To conclude, I believe that studying a foreign language should be optional rather compulsory. The advantages of learning foreign language should be explained to parents so that the latter can make an informed decisions on foreign language studies for their children. Please read my notice: Thank you for this post It was really helpful!
Where I can find more information about academic writing? Thank you very much for the great help you have provided by your nice samples. I gave Ielts exam and I have 4. It is not possible to learn sentences and put them into your essay. The examiner is trained to spot learned phrases and they will not be accepted.
To get band score 6, you must have band score 6 English. This is ultimately a language test, you must have the level of English suitable to the score you want to achieve. My recommendation is to improve your level of English so you can write complex sentences without too many errors. Learn ideas to apply but not fixed sentences. Does it mean to answer each point given in the task?
It is about answering the issues in the essay question. There might be one or two. See here for more information: A similar page can be found in writing task 1. Hi liz I wrote your essay And I realised that how much mistakes that I made in the past, now I will try to make ideas for essay. But I need your help to improve me. What are the current and the long term effects? I believe my grammar and spelling are not bad but my writing band came as 6.
For other components L It might be due to the language you used and the way you used your ideas. And you need to aim for accuracy in language rather than aiming to impress the examiner which usually leads to more mistakes. Thank you Liz madam for helping people by sharing your ideas.
I have noted all your inputs from your videos. I am confident I will take 6. I am also siting on 30th May. If you do not mind, we can share our Writing with each other. This would help to both of us, as we can have different writing style and ideas. Will you please share your writing ideas and technique to me.
All my tips and lessons are found on this page: You will find a similar page for writing task 1 in that section on the red navigation bar. Thank you once again. Try to aim for accuracy in your English to reduce errors.
And remember that having a clear meaning is more important than complex language if your English is not too strong. Hi Liz I noticed in you essay that, you have not endorsed your ides with examples. Is it not important to support ideas with examples? Now I googled you, hopefully I get my desired marks that is 7. Examples are just one way of supporting an idea. You decide the best way to support your ideas. Should we use two reasons with example each or two reasons and one example.
And if we do not give any realistic example then will it affect the bands. Two weeks from now, I am sitting for the exams. This would be really helpful! You give as few or as many examples as you want. Vocabulary should be appropriate. You should aim for accuracy rather than just trying to impress. Throughout the lessons you kept smiling.
Thanks for lovely smile and priceless tutorials I really appreciate, if you analyze one of my essay. Due to work I get very less time to practice and this would be extremely precious for me. Sorry but I recently stopped all feedback on writing, except for once a month. Dear Liz, Thank you for your wonder insights and training videos. I am sure they have added value to my understanding. You are never asked to give a balanced opinion. You can be asked to give an opinion and it is your decision whether to go for a balanced approach or one-sided.
Or you are asked to discuss both sides and give your opinion, in which case you discuss both sides and also give your opinion. Always follow the instructions. This is asking if you agree OR disagree. So, choose your opinion and explain it in the essay — no other information is required. A balanced view does not discuss both sides, it presents a specific opinion. You can still get band score 9 choosing one side. This essay shows a balanced approach which does not discuss both sides, it gives a specific opinion.
Just agree with one side if that is easier for you. Any approach can get a high score. You just need to present a very clear position which is supported throughout your essay with main ideas well developed. What do you think about the effect at present and in future? If you wrote your essay about a decreasing population it will affect you score for Task Response which relates to your ideas and answer.
You could get a low score for that criterion. However, you might still do well in the other three criterion which could help. You must wait and see your result.
Please read the rules for posting writing: This page is found at the top of this blog. For both listening and reading, the key is to follow the questions and find answers. You should not try to understand everything you hear or read — only find answers. Always listen and read for paraphrases and have clear techniques for each question type: It is not a good idea to learn in a rush because you will make mistakes with either meaning or how to use the word appropriately.
Good luck with your test. My question is if we write two paragraphs of only negative impacts caused by social networking sites ,will that be ok and relevant?
Or discussing the positive side is required too? This asks for your opinion so you just write your opinion. Some thought that candidates should not use difficult vocabularies because of they think: Examiner could not understand the meaning… Do you think that is right? You should use appropriate vocabulary.
The problem with high level vocab is that most students using high level vocab do not have high level English. This means they end up making so many mistakes with the words that they get a low score due to high density of errors.
Taking anytime over the history, scientific inventions and new technologies were always a game changer for the time. Consequently they influenced and changed human life to a great extent.
The historic inventions of telephone, radio and electric bulb can be taken for instance. The day they were invented, it brought a difference to the far imaginations of personal and public communication services and the very concept of lighting up houses and streets to a safe and convenient day-like light. Unarguably, these by gone time technologies and discoveries formed the stepping stones to modern developments and inventions.
However, the growth of technologies of our era has made an enviable progress through the diligent researches and emphases in science and related fields and it still goes on. The proliferating fields such as Artificial Intelligence, space exploration and Information and Communication Technology are, a few of the end products of technological evolution and their scope and influence can neither be evaluated nor predicted in limits.
Nevertheless, this fast growth and impact of the new generation innovations are so vast and multitudinous that we frequently fail to realize them in our busy life style. This can be clearly understood by the instance of OS or application updates we receive and install for our smart gadgets in every fortnight or monthly basis.
To conclude, in my opinion inventions and technologies have always been there, making our life easier and better and it is quite irrelevant comparing which era they belong to.
What is more important is we should learn to appreciate and contribute to these monumental developments that are significantly changing and improvising our life and the world we live.

And there is a list of things Antony is looking forward to this summer in Out magazine. Remixed by Fennesz, with artwork by Stephen O'Malley. Antony has participated in an article about artists' perceptions of Cocorosie published on Stereogum today. Antony wrote an article memorializing the passing of Kazuo Ohno, which has been printed in the Guardian today.
Ohno performing in Kazuo Ohno, who has died aged , was one of the pioneers of butoh, Japan's striking contribution to contemporary dance. Butoh, which incorporated elements of existentialism, surrealism, German expressionism, kabuki theatre and eastern spiritual thought, was a reaction in part to the horrors of the second world war. In , Ohno had been drafted into the Japanese army as an intelligence officer. He spent nine years in China and New Guinea, and was held for two years as a prisoner of war.
Ohno presented his first solo performance, Jellyfish Dance, in Tokyo in The performance was thought to be a meditation on the burials at sea that he had observed on board a vessel bearing captives to be repatriated to Japan.
The young artist Tatsumi Hijikata was hypnotised by Ohno's performance that night, and their destinies became entwined. With Ohno as his muse, Hijikata spent the next several years developing Ankoku Butoh-ha — "the dance of utter darkness". Using memories of maternal love and the archetype of the divine child as the basis for much of his tender expression, Ohno frequently reduced his audience to tears.
Traversing the stage in a hypnotic reverie, he would gesture skyward with his long, curling hands. He was a masterful and exacting improviser, and performed in schools, gardens and hospitals, as well as avant-garde institutions around the world.
Ohno was born in Hakodate, Hokkaido; his father was a fisherman and his mother a musician. A gifted athlete, he attended Japan Athletic College, in Tokyo. Soon after, he began to study with the modern-dance pioneers Baku Ishii and Takaya Eguchi. Upon completion of his studies, Ohno began teaching physical education in a private Christian school in Yokohama. Under the influence of the school's headteacher, he converted to the Baptist faith in Its influence would later become apparent in his work.
He married Chie Nakagawa in ; they would have two sons, Yoshito and Yukito. From onwards, Hijikata directed a host of solo performances featuring Ohno. The first, Divine, was a tribute to the dying transvestite prostitute from Jean Genet's subversive novel Our Lady of the Flowers. From the beginning, Ohno was yin to Hijikata's yang.
While some butoh dancers later came to embody an almost impenetrable stoicism, and others grotesque horror, Ohno expressed something more ethereal, feminine and ecstatic in his reveries. Ohno shed all social constructs in pursuit of essence, believing that "form comes by itself" wherever there is spiritual presence. His revelations of love, pain and ghostly innocence were conveyed with the intuition of a great elder. The production won the Dance Critics' Circle award in Japan.
As a teenager in , I stumbled across an image of Ohno on a peeling poster in the streets of Angers in north-west France. Captivated by this mysterious portrait, I placed the picture above my bed, where it has remained to this day. As I discovered more about the artist and his work, Ohno's dance and philosophy became a source of great inspiration to me. In , I featured a portrait of him on the cover of my album The Crying Light. Earlier this year, I visited the Kazuo Ohno dance studio in Yokohama, established some 60 years ago, and collaborated with Yoshito on a performance celebrating his father's life and work.
At Ohno's bedside, I witnessed a surprising vitality and sensed an almost invisible movement reverberating through his elderly frame. As he lay there, his window open to reveal a cherry blossom tree and a view of Mount Fuji, I realised that Ohno had developed a creative process that was a byproduct of his spiritual practice. Yoshito told me during my visit to the studio that they aspired to total freedom in their dance, and that it emerged from a place of universal love.
His st birthday was marked by the Japan Society with a butoh festival including performances by Yoshito and an array of younger dancers. Ohno's appearances grew less frequent as he became increasingly immobile, although he continued to make gestures from his wheelchair, interacting with some invisible spirit with his hands. Once hospitalised, he continued to dance with his eyes and, at the last, with his breath. He is survived by Yoshito and Yukito, and by his brother and two sisters.
Chie died in He was my hero and my teacher. I feel so honored to have had the opportunity to meet him and get a little closer to his family and his work earlier this year when we visited the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio in Japan.
I thank him for awakening a sense of a child inside me. I will dream of him forever, and I will search for his footsteps in the dust of life before me. I wish only for his flourishing joy. Seven generation sustainability is an ecological concept that urges the current generation of humans to live sustainably and work for the benefit of the seventh generation into the future.
Where are you taking them? What will they have? Lyons O An Iroquois Perspective. Ecological Issues in Native American History. Gays Jailed in Malawi. Here's 2 young people from Malawi who went to jail yesterday for up to 14 years in a "hard labour work camp" convicted of "unnatural acts and gross indecency.
That one on the right especially looks like some kind of angel. Across Africa it seems the right wing are seeking to kill, jail and discriminate gay and transgender people. They are calling for the execution of gay people in Uganda. The right wing in the US has done the same thing; the Republicans often glide into office on a manipulative platform rallying against gays and reproductive rights, only then to turn their influence to serve the corporations once they are in power.
This is a classic way that right wing parties appeal to the working class, enacting fake morality sweeps across their countries. The fundamentalist Islamics recently did it in Baghdad, executing scores of young gay people in the last year to purge the "American influence" and win the favor of naive constituents.
And the rights of women are always just a step behind the rights of faggots. The way a culture embraces its gay and transgender children is one of the greatest litmus tests of the psychic and spiritual health of that society. From last years archives. David Tibet of Current 93 is staging 2 major concerts in celebration of his 50th Birthday in London this may.
