Dance, performance, art,
exploring body, mind, spirit.

- Nordic School of Butoh
originates in thoughts and methods from the Japanese butoh: A powerful experimental style of dance, uniting holistic knowledge with new scenic avantgarde.

- The school brings together philosophy and dance technique and gives a broad, professionally qualified teaching which integrates research and method in the creative and executive work.

The body is explored and exposed as insisting and complex beyond conventional aesthetics and psychological refinement.

- Body, mind, spirit and other well known principles of three-dimensional training becomes essential for the work with dynamics, kinetics and bodily understanding.

- The purpose is to open up for the experience and performance of a more authentic language of dance and expression, to nourish an intuitive flow of creative power beyond the personal and technical movement.

During the last 10 years butoh has inspired new dance and performance by breaking up with the western conception of the body and it's relation to human existence and nature.
