Join us for the fall sessions of Butoh Body. There are now 2 opportunities every week!
Every Sunday @Outerspace 12-2pm, and Monday nights 6-8pm @HCL, MANA Contemporary.
Beginning with breath work primarily, we locate our breath in our bodies and together create a generous mindbody space to explore new ways of being. We spend time writing/drawing to formalize and ritualize the ideas that come forth, and perform short vignettes for each other to solidify and share our discoveries. Come dance your heart out~
Learn to bring your most vibrant internal sensations to a lively connected performance!
In this workshop Annie Rudnik and Sarah Gottlieb approach somatics through the lens of performance. They will guide dancers to sense deep layers of internal connection and ease of movement with Feldenkrais and Laban/Bartenieff Fundamentals. Participants will learn to integrate inner/outer focus with internal impulses by exploring the role of the witness and will cultivate choice-making methods through improvisational score building.
All the beautiful performances!! Can’t wait to do it again~
Thank you to Yumiko, and to over 44 participants in the workshop April 9-13. We worked on our wave, our visualizations of waterballs, ghost horse, fish eating bubbles, and so much more!
