The class will make an inquiry into the transformative nature of the body exploring unique individual expression drawn from Butoh with a somatic approach.

Butoh is a form of Japanese avant-garde dance which emerged in the late 50s in post war Japan.  Influenced by German Expressionism, self-identity was radically explored through bodily expression.

Shifting attention from ‘action’ to ‘active listening’ we will explore Butoh’s culturally diverse perspectives.  Moving from sensory impulse we will seek ways to embody imagery and sensation and dance in groups, pairs and individuals in both dynamic and quiet practice. All welcome.
