Master Yumiko Yoshioka 12 hours Intensive Butoh Workshop from 1 - 2 April hosted by Soubi Sha, is open for registration! Limited to 25 participants only, and 16 spots are available now.
The main focus of the 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
*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
