Frontier in Body: Butoh Workshop with Yuko Kaseki
The workshop’s emphasis is to develop original movement through body awareness, sensitivity and to help discover hidden dynamic energy. Physical training is based on Noguchi gymnastics, elements of Tai-Chi Dao-yin and Butoh methodology. We practice for the whole body to become permeable and awaken deeper layers of sensitivity. We try to find the center of our body (Tanden), which is our energy source.
The workshop offers the possibility to seek and experience in solo, duet and group improvisations with image, element, space, and relationship. Through intensity and reduction everyone can dive deeply into stillness/movement and translate it into individual manifestations.
