Reawaken the presence and the body’s awareness of being,enter in contact with the wonder of our body, our sacred home, living it as one with mind, heart and spirit. Allow the dance to emerge naturally, with your breath, dance touching the deep of human soul, nourish the beauty of the present moment, letting forms become an expression of soul.
The body is a sensitive and marvellous unit, in which all the parts communicate harmoniously, containing time and space within its cells, written as archetypes of ancestral memories. Research the organic movements, coming from the roots, the centre, the skeleton, the senses, the sensations, from inside, explore the subtle movements, which arises from the skeleton and sustains the dance; nourish the state in which you are moved, danced, letting yourself go to the flow of energy, without doing, flowing and becoming one thing with the action.
Dance the transformation, embody and embrace the spirit/energy of everything: the various manifestations of nature, its cycles and of human being; the inner landscapes, the art images, the poetry, the myths, awaken your ancient wild nature. Give birth to a state of emptiness and return to the empty body of origins, awakening a natural body, free from social and cultural limitations.
Emptiness envelops and permeates the matter, through its mysterious quality all beings and aspects of life are connected, this Emptiness is full, vibrant, love, harmony, it embraces everything, and at the same time is free from everything, it generates dance and at the same time sounds and movements fade away in it. When body and being are in contact with this vibrant emptiness, which permeates the creation, we are free to become everything, dancing the beauty and the mystery of every life manifestation, and the act of creation becomes spontaneous, natural, effortless and free.
Dancing Butoh, one enters into a state of lucid trance, in which creating becomes spontaneous, a divine game in which you are danced by something, while dancing it yourself, creating it in the present moment, discovering your expressive freedom, beyond the aesthetic forms of dance. The birth of a dance can be a moment of opening, where to feel that a big strength and love are released, to live the eroticism, the sensuality and the feelings of things, the catharsis, the transient nature of beauty and life.
Sensitive Dance® combined with various eastern and western practices will be proposed as preparatory training for Butoh allowing to:
The workshop will be accompanied by the live music of Tivitavi (tibetan bells, gong, didgeridoo, drumming, stones, natural sounds, electronic sounds, flutes and voice).
This training and experience are useful for both dramatic arts as well as for the growth of personal and human consciousness. It is indicated for anyone who wants to undertake a journey of awareness through the body: dancers, performers, actors, artists, therapists, educators, psychologists, and people in pursuing personal research. A background in dance is not required.
The ideal duration of one workshop is from 2 to more days, one week or more, but it is also possible a 3 hours class. The topics of the workshops change. It is also possible to do some water work with sensitive dance water practices.
“Within the body, the bones and the skeleton, the memories of our ancestors dance and sing,
the sacred column contains the vital lymph, which dances freely within it.
The skeleton burns and turns to carbon, absorbing light,
the empty space from which everything originates and to which everything returns.
The breath deepens, the spirit embraces the Universe,
becoming infinite space, you dance the beauty of every manifestation of life.
The personal memory and that of the Universe manifest, the organs express their emotions.
Grasping the emptiness, non-doing, to make room for that which you are about to create,
the time and the form of a dance, the expression of its voice or song”. (Kea)
