Movement of becoming – Butoh based workshop
Chapter : INSECTS
The workshop is about movement of becoming based on butoh practice and the
choreographers’ personal research.
Movement of becoming here means the movement towards dissolving into something else
– a process of metamorphosing.
Butoh is a dance which has its roots in the new dance movement of the late 1950s in Japan.
The founders are Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ono. One of the characteristic of the practice
can be said that it deals with metamorphosis – becoming something else – through
challenging the notion of fixed and unchanging subject and making appear an intense way
of existing, the state between something and something else.
This becoming is not about representing nor interpreting something else, but try to really
become, which is a physical sensation rather than realizing an idea.
Each weekend workshop focuses on one basic material in order to take time to prepare the
body and mind to really experience the sensation, going through diferent exercises in order
to realize movement of becoming.
This chapter one focuses on Insects.
It is open to everyone who is interested in the subject.
