BUTOH workshop by Yuri and Seisaku
Yuri has been interested in different body work and practiced such as Ballet, Yoga, Noguchi Gymnastic, Noguchi Seitai, Taichi, Karate, etc.. those practices are helpful to prepare the body to be neutral and energetic. The first part of this workshop, she teaches her personal physical practice inspired by those body work including ideas of Butoh philosophy.
Contents: hanging body with no weight, movement by using invisible thread, movement by images of light and darkness, release and tension, how to feel the distance..etc
The second part is taught by Seisaku. He learned Butoh under Tatsumi Hijikata and Yohko Ashikawa. He developed the Butoh method originally with keeping the most important essence.
He has many interesting methods how to make the body empty. You will find the possibility that you can be anything you want if you could be empty.
Contents: walking, look and be looked at, insect eating, animal, smoke, plants, ghost, flower, light and darkness, face expression, wall of the mud….etc
We believe everyone can enjoy with us.
