After the success of the first Butoh workshop at CLOUD/Danslab, lead by butoh master Natsu Nakajima, we organize the second butoh intensive week, now with 2nd generation butoh artist Yuko Kaseki.
About the workshop CHORE O’GRAFFITI
Dance is an odd job and graffiti is sprayed fast, erased and painted over and over in urban space. What is choreography? What is improvisation? What is life? Breaking the border of systems and accidents that feed each other to find their own way of creation. Take risk in the process for progress, to print on a new surface.
Participants are asked to bring their own theme for a performance, develop and demonstrate it. The intention of the workshop is to expose oneself to the possibilities and challenges of damage, and re-creation. Furthermore we will establish original movements through improvisation with image, gesture, space, and relationships and thus increase body awareness.
The physical training will be based on Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi, and Butoh methodology. We practice the whole body to make it permeable for the awakening and the deepening of our layers of sensitivity. We will attempt to explore how we associate the variations of our inner body in relation to the outer by listening honestly.
