Chapter IV – Bird
The workshop is about movement of becoming based on butoh practice and the choreographer’s 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 funders 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 or 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 (e.g. Flower, Water, Wind, Soil, Bird, etc.) in order to take time to prepare the body and mind to really experience the sensation, going through different exercises in order to realize movement of becoming.
This chapter focuses on Bird and is open to everyone who is interested in the subject.
