This specific workshop is focusing on the methods and texts of the founder of butoh Tatsumi Hijikata, contextualising it for contemporary and future performing arts of 21st century. Through examining his texts as well as his choreography notation recorded by his dancers, approaching to it both theoretically and practically, the workshop will attempt to extract universal method that enables us to expand the concept of “body” or “human” and to allow us to embody unlimited diverse qualities of the universe. In the same time, the workshop intends to shed a critical light on it and searches for its evolution.
The workshop is open both for beginners and professionals.
– Exploring the method of embodiment of the images.
– Establishing the connection between physical and metaphysical levels.
– Exploring the method of creations of space (not only physical movement, but creation of space is essential)
– Examining irrevant “butoh” style, taste, and ideas, with creative critical attitude.
– Thus, blooming lotus in the mud of Butoh
