BUTOH dance workshop in Berlin

Moderated: Kokoro - Krzysztof Jerzak (https://www.facebook.com/KokoroKJ)
The workshop is aimed at those interested in deepening and expanding body-mind awareness. It is addressed to both beginners and advanced people who are looking for authentic movement and attentive presence in the body in relation to others.
It will be useful for: dancers, performers, actors, people training: martial arts, yoga, etc., as well as those interested in therapy through the body.
In the workshop different methods of working with the body-mind will be used, together creating a coherent whole, including:
– Aikishintaiso (Aikido internal gymnastics),
– Noguchitaiso (Noguchi Michizo gymnastics),
– dancing with/without an image,
– expressing emotions in dance,
– improvisation,
– individual dance, with a partner and in a group,
– meditation
– deep relaxation.
Japanese “modern” dance was created in the 1950s as a result of a search for new forms of expression. Its creators, Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, negated both their own tradition (Kabuki, Bunraku, Nō) and “opposed” mass culture of the West.
In Butoh dance the body becomes a text, a record of human experience discovered through movement. Butoh creates space for direct and total self-expression.
