    The Presence of Spirals

    10:00 - 16:00

    Dance Palace Church Space, Pt. Reyes Station, California

    Following the inherent spiral pathways within the body, this workshop develops the efficiency and connective strength of our tissues. With observation, the beauty of our construction emerges. Exercises will focus on winding and unwinding the tissues with particular attention given to the spine and the various connections running through the torso to the arms and legs.

    Butoh (Deconstruct the Darkness)

    11:00 - 12:30

    UC Berkeley, Bancroft Studio (2401 Bancroft)

    Becoming air, ocean, cloud, mountain… manifests uniquely for each individual, arising from the ground that nourishes the dance. The culture and training of each individual infuses Butoh dance with vital new perspectives and flavors. Digging into self-formation ripens the dancer’s transformation process.

    Workshop: Deconstruct the Darkness

    TBA

    Yaw Theater
    Seattle Butoh Festival

    Shinichi, arms close to torso.Becoming air, ocean, cloud, mountain… manifests uniquely for each individual, arising from the ground that nourishes the dance. The culture and training of each individual infuses Butoh dance with vital new perspectives and flavors. Digging into self-formation ripens the dancer’s transformation process. 

    Physical precision combines with imagistic prompts. Dance through unreasonable terrains. Suspend time. Complex and nuanced forces shape the momentary gesture, the pathway of the eyes.

    Exercises develop energy-efficient motion and connectivity to build clarity and stability. With this foundation, enter the chaotic stream of life. Become wild. Let go. Enter an unknown world. Build the strength to allow weakness.

    Dance belongs to mystery. [MORE]
