We are back from our break after running the festival… Even this year the festival gave its fruits and we are happy to say we got some really good and supportive feed back from the audience. We take this opportunity to express our gratitude towards all those that came along and helped out via funding, participation and encouragement.
Amongst the many things that we are already organising and putting together, Butoh classes will start this week.
Butoh dance combines artistic and poetic qualities present in everyone and an in-depth development of our physical self to explore the infinite possibilities of our bodies.
It provides an opportunity to work through our blockages: the daily routine, the stress accumulated during the day or particular life transitions can just be softened and danced through or used as fertilizers for new images to dance with.
Practicing moving from the perceptible to the imperceptible helps develop the capacity of inner vision in order to perceive the layers our body is made of, while multi-sensory visualizations allow us to witness the dance finding its inspiration from within the poetics of nature, life and one’s own personality.
This practice is beneficial and helps in developing physical mastery and opening a path of self-discovery. It aids in awareness of our emotional landscape and how this then translates in our physical body. Practicing Butoh, we are capable to be present in the moment with all our selves.
Butoh classes are useful for:
- Drama/theatre practitioners and students
- Dance/physical performers
- Developing a mind-body practice or simply anyone interested in deepening self-knowledge, self expression and/through poetic visions and bodily awareness
