It is Butoh practice time again!
I am very happy to get back to class and to have a slot in for Culture Night! Come along to try it out at 7.30 on the 18th or you can drop in every Thursday evening from 7 to 9pm Dance Ireland Dance House Foley St. – 15e drop in 55×4 classes
Students: 12e drop in; 45 x 4 classes
Classes run from September until December 2015.
Butoh is a great body method, a dance, an art. It can be beneficial for performers of all the arts and those that enjoy exploring non-verbal communication. There are many beneficial aspects of Butoh…It aids in supporting our wellbeing, it is a a playground for our personal creativity. It helps our presence, develops body-mind awareness and deepens its understanding. It allows to delve into archetypes and develop our own cultural interpersonal one.
Butoh dances through relations, transmissions, resonances and in betweens.
What we do in class: I have organised classes in a set of four. We will explore:
transmission of movement through actual movement exploration and visual stimulation
stillness and speed
internal movement – micro-movement
Performing outings, guests and more to be expected!
Hoping to meet you in dance!
