|Guest book for 2 months intensive
including the guest workshop of the Butoh dancers
Jasmine France and Ishii Japan in the spring, and he performance work
of the students.
|Thank you Anita and all of you for this 2- month’s
course! So many things has happened and it has been fascinating to
move into Butoh- a new (or old) sense as opened. It has been very
good to work with the body and nature. I want to continue with that.
It has been an intensive journey with many ups and downs, brightness
and darkness – like life! I am glad to have met you al and that
we spend this time together. From so many different places –
I hope to see you again sometime!

|Beautiful and hard, black and white, dark and light…duality
is surfing on the dance waves here in the Nordic Sea of Butoh. A rich
experience for body, mind, perception, senses. In the end, there is
a feeling of fulfillment and saturation but also of grief and wonder.
Keep walking it tells you. And you have learnt here that you can walk
forward with all sides of your body – conventional wisdom and
knowledge are dissolved.
I enjoyed our amazing group energy in an exclusively female gathering
from different world points. So nice to be together, to care, to share,
to feel, to synchronize!
I loved the space of Nordic School of Butoh. It was awesome to see
the garden transforming between the winter – spring –
summer seasons. Such a battle inside and outside!
And there is Anita with a big heart and feelings and big wardrobe
of costumes and a bigger magic box of exercises, intuition and recipes
for dance, life, creativity. She keeps you alert and keeps on going
in smooth and sometimes hard ways.
A life experience that I am carrying on the whole of my cells from
now on. There is a big butoh road ahead. Keep walking.

|Hai! Definitely, it has been the most
rewarding course I have participated. Having professional background
in fine arts, the teaching of the Nordic School of Butoh has been
right the thing I have always lacked in western art schools’
education. It goes very deep to human being, nature and cultural behaving
and animals! This two month course ha given me a great respect for
butoh and its effect on being in the world. Deeper understanding through
exercises and communication between people and inside oneself. Interactions
in many levels. Floating through death and life, settling a structure
and letting the intuition work! Thank you Anita and the group, from
2 month course
Dear Ishi and lrike and all at Nordic School of Butoh
Filled with beautiful words, pictures and senses like nectar! I keep
on dancing my way. Love
Thank you Anita keeping the butoh centre soul alive in Copenhagen!
Roots in the sky! I want to go to Japan!

||A great Kiss. An experience everyone should try
(man or woman). Have fun!
Butoh is like something that is cosmic, with and inside the movement
of universe. All things are always moving, breathing, changing feelings
when alive!!!!, great guest workshop
Where we are somewhere I do not know but I have to stay, I cannot
go away sometimes never know place. It is always the first time.
Amazing, how you transform the room, atmosphere.
Our performance here was lovely. You showed love, joy, body, soul,
spirit, life, death. I loved it. I will never forget. I will take
it with me. Nice journey. Love.
