Butoh: Deconstruct the Darkness

Taught by Shinichi Iova-Koga

Butoh originates in Japan. Yet, the dance springs from the culture of each individual. A deeper self understanding sets the stage for transformation. Become air, ocean, cloud, mountain… manifesting differently for each individual, arising from the conditions that feed the dancer.

Improvisational training and imagistic prompts combine with physical precision to dance through unreasonable terrains. Complex and nuanced forces shape the moment.

Energy-efficient motion and connectivity develops clarity and stability. With this foundation, enter the chaotic stream of subconscious life patterning. Become wild. Let go. Enter an unknown world with the strength to allow weakness.

Dance belongs to mystery.
