What moves us in times of wars and genocides? These morning classes will bring the movement modalities and knowledge frameworks of Butoh from itinerant, divergent lineages to bear upon the embodied urgency and impetus of the now. Countering colonial somatics with a soft, diasporic Butoh practice, the sessions will invite enquiries into embodied objecthood, durationality and polarity.

We will practise becoming otherwise through a meditative encounter with both alien and divine imagery as we shake, undulate, descend, ascend, distend, compress, glide and pivot. Leaning into Butoh’s deep curiosity about the relationship with otherness, our investigation will be guided by improvisational and sensorial contemplation that has the potential to move us beyond embodied singularity and toward a collective recognition of contested affinity, entanglement and complicity. In between moving, reflecting and dialoguing, we will reckon with the precarity and imperative of embodied practice in the global struggles against settler colonialism.

Cancellations and refunds
Prices for classes are kept very low and are subsidised by ID in order to support artists to attend. To keep admin manageable for our small team, we don’t offer refunds if you cancel or can’t attend a class, and we can’t transfer your booking to a different class/event. We hope this is understandable. If a class is cancelled or changed by ID however, we do offer refunds/transfers to everyone who has booked.
