From the deep roots to the flowers of contemporary art:
Butoh, theater, contemporary dance, voice and performance

This course will be divided into three main modules:

1. Open to the Universe

Dedicated to the Butoh by Kasuo Ono, this module will work among its main themes: Life, death, flower and bird. The circulation of life in the body, in dance, in the environment, in time and in space. Touch the deepest of yourself and open the essence of your dance for life just as a flower opens to the universe.

For all levels. No prior knowledge or technique is required. Open to all interested in knowing, introducing, practicing, exercising and improving their personal and / or artistic expression. For dancers, actors, performers as well as body therapists and others interested in developing self knowledge and perfection through dance.

2. Dancing Archetypal Gods

Dedicated to the Butoh by Tasumi Hijikata, this module will present some forms and choreographies created and inspired by the father of Butoh dance. To develop his dances and choreographies, Hijikata studied classical forms of Eastern statues and represented them in their technique and their own aesthetics. During the four encounters, you will learn some of these forms as well as others that the Brazilian director, Will Lopes, has been researching in the Afro-Indian mythology of his culture.

Open to dancers, actors, performers as well as therapists, body artists and other interested parties.

3. Butoh Group Performance

In this module we will review the main fundamentals and exercises explored in the two previous modules to create and develop solo and group Butoh dance performances. So the dance of Kasuo Ono, Tasumi Hijikata as well as that of Atsushi Takenouchi and the Jinen Butoh School will be our material for the module. During the 4 meetings, the objective will be to develop a final presentation based on the group's interest and availability. For this, an extra meeting will be scheduled, probably on July 7, 2019.
