- the body in time and space -
Experimental dance and its relation to existence, nature, and the animalistic
body. Basic thoughts and methods of Butoh dance are introduced. In the
butoh dancer's body, the relationship between the world and the body is
investigated. Physical and mental presence, transformation, and research
into body as well as mind and spirit.
Comprehensive training together with interesting workshops offer
elements such as:
Awareness - Image Work - Strength & Flexibility - Mind & Body
- Alignment - Dynamic
Energy - Co-ordination - Precision - Centering - Gravity - Breathing -
- for man, the body caní t be considered as an isolated phenomenon
in time and space
- like dance can't be considered only to exist of physical movements,
- but a world so fantastic created in the deeper levels of the nature
- filled with enormous power and strange fantasies
Butoh is an experimental, powerful body performance
originally from Japan, unifying philosophy, training and expression.
Has through the last 10 years inspired contemporary dance and performance,
breaking up the western conception of body, mind, spirit, and the dancerís
relation to existence and nature.
The course is for everyone working with the body, no
specific experience in dance or Butoh is required. The workshop also gives
an introduction to Butoh for possible new students at the education, and
for continuing at other courses at Nordic School of Butoh.
