Body Resonance based on Butoh and Organic Movement
The main focus of this workshop is a conscious research of our body /mind/soul unification, so we can deeply enjoy the intrinsic process of metamorphosis through the spirit of dance.
Through a continuous exploration of our past collective memories, we can strike a vein of abundant creative resources, enriching the essence of our life.
The body is a receptacle of time. Body resonance is a key to opening up the doors of an ever-changing world inside and outside of ourselves, which helps the body to unfold its secrets, holding them up until they shine and tremble.
Everything is in resonance with each other.
Through a dialogue with our body, we can learn to be moved by inner and outer forces, thus realizing we are a part of the Universe.
A dance of metamorphosis inevitably appears.
· release exercises, inspired by Noguchi Taiso (Gymnastics),
Taichi and Yoga
· breathing exercises
· dynamic training for the flow of energy
· Butoh-related work to activate our universal memories
(sensitization, combination of image and movement with
antenna exercises such as figure of 8, water ball, animal, insect,
snake, witch and fairy, the creatures inside us, hanging body,
walking, dialogue with a partner etc)
· structured improvisation, free association
Butoh is a dance of transformation in body and mind which allows to experience the world from different points of view. This perspective can be human or perhaps animal or cosmic in origin. Either way, there is a constant feedback loop between the imagination and the body. As both artist and teacher, I use these perspectives and the layers of body memory to be the channels and catalysts. Through a dialogue with own body one can learn to be moved by both the internal and external forces that exist all around.
