Bob’s Compilation

An introduction. Bob’s Compilation is a solid list for anyone looking to tap into sensitivity trainings of mind body awareness from a lineage of Butoh. Bob has a twenty year plus record of attending workshops and participating in performances with many of Butoh’s legendary masters. Both formal and informal techniques originate from Japanese masters, and have adapted and regenerated into European descendants, and folded back into it’s roots, which are a collage of Japanese, African, European, and American art, dance and performance styles of the early twentieth century. Butoh tends to have a murky water flavor, teaming with variation, nuance, and multiplicity. In our estimation, this dance form is the endless trickster, it becomes a ritual dance of the present, to mark a specific time and place, to be shared by all humans, including immigrants, refugees, otherly abled, and worldwide outsider artists seeking to express through the body, all of its vivid dimension. TransfoRMiNg, unLeaRNINg, DisCoVERIng, Resilience TraiNING. And More. All classes are suggested donation. Please do be aware that all of these artists support themselves by sharing their accumulated knowledge online. If you find any error or wish to add classes to this list, please reach out and let us know, we can update and revise as we go. (butohchicago@gmail.com)

Online classes with Minako

The Power of Imagination

Now, we are at home. Let’s find coziness, joy, playfulness and bliss in our body. Our body is our real home, the home we hold within.

April 21 : We have a tail !!

Our tail initiates our movement and we get impulse from it.

April 22 : Body as Water bag !!

Water never moves by itself, water reacts from impulse! Water has all the qualities, it becomes soft when you swim, it might be a nice shower on the skin, sometimes a big wave pushes you or a strong water jet hits your back.

April 23 : Body as Point / Isolation Robot

Isolation based on wave. Isolation and wave sound like a contradiction. You will see today how we can make a bridge between these two phenomena:)

April 24 : images are twisted and duplicated / Picture of Francis Bacon

How is your body moving, going through a narrow door?

We will enter from daily movement into 100s of imaginary doors and rooms. Through imagination we will bring our body towards a magical world.

April 25 : Intention / Where is the blue bird?

Your intention emerges from your will! You want to drink a cup of coffee, and your body intents to do such a movement. We will start moving step by step, until reaching the dance of micro and macro cosmos

What to do?

Please register in advance for this meeting, with Zoom:
https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0tfuihqDspHdOObK8hUqkIoCy981ETU80g

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Please try to find a quiet, spacious and isolated place for this practice, according to the space you can enjoy these days:)
Make sure your microphone is MUTE, and your video is ON. Click on the SPEAKER VIEW, to have Minako in the big picture.

By joining Minako Seki Online Workshop , you declare being in a good shape and being responsible for your own safety. Please be gentle with yourself:)

Safe Hiatus

With sadness, and with a terrific need to respond in some way. Not knowing words, or combinations of words for these feelings, clearly in transition, as we are.

The much planned for Butoh Between Festival for May 2020 has been cancelled. All programming at OuterSpace is also cancelled until further notice. Our international artists have stopped travel plans. We are going dark so that we may transform, to find our present in the purpose of community and survival. We will communicate as we can, and urge you to share in ways that nurture generosity and open heartedness toward every one of us.

Wishing you health & sanity during a most surreal time. 
We encourage each other to support feeding and housing our local communities. To remain engaged, and responsive to each situation.
To trust that our body/mind will know how to respond. To cultivate self practice, mindfulness, and respect for all beings.

“Like what we know of the virus so far, we are uncommitted to anything particular. We mutate with the times.”

Thanks for supporting us. We will be back ASAP.

Butoh Workshops with Holly Chernobyl

Next up in the new year, Butoh: Body + Imagination Workshop

Saturday, January 5, 2019
4-8pm
Japanese Culture Center
1016 West Belmont Avenue, Chicago

In this 4 hour workshop, we will use and go beyond the 5 basic forms. Using center (hara/tanden/dantian) work and specific imagery, we dive deep into dancing butoh. You’ll learn different techniques for releasing tension to open physically and energetically. This class uses a combination of improv and technique. Finally, using embodied imagery, we create dances that can carry us and support our daily lives.

Instruction for butoh is instruction for life!

This class is for dancers, actors, martial artists, butoh artists or the butoh-curious. You do not need to have previous experience with butoh, but it helps. Whatever your circumstance, please show up ready to do your best!

Class is $45.00, you can order on Eventbrite

This workshop has a limited number of spaces available! Please register ASAP through the JCC office by emailing info@japaneseculturecenter.com or by calling the office directly.

Wear clothes that are easy to move in! Bring a water bottle. This workshop is open to all levels and abilities. Total newbies especially welcome!

From Holly: I am committed to creating an environment which is inclusive of many lived experiences and many abilities. That said, the center is not ADA accessible, unfortunately. Many apologies. This may change in the future.

Holly Chernobyl is a body-based performance artist. Holly has presented work in many Chicago spaces such as the Chicago Cultural Center, Links Hall, and Dfb Gallery. Her work has also been performed in Seattle at Velocity Dance Center, Brooklyn at JACK, and shown in Boston, Berlin, the UK, and Quebec. She continues to create solo pieces and collaborate with a talented array of Chicago artists. In 2016, she held four artist residencies, in rural Finland, Wisconsin, Germany, and at the Chicago Cultural Center.

We explore the dynamics of resonance in relation to space using classical scores, experimental opera, improvised sound, expanded cinema, and Butoh dance. Our gestures come from strong desire to communicate intimately, to seek an opening to our fears in an embrace. Ultimately, we want to surprise, disarm, and uplift the spirit, to continue weaving the long tail of our evolutionary story. We have been making in this collective for two years, in all sort of venues in Chicago, including Chicago Cultural Center, Edgar Miller Legacy Studio, Silent Funny, Ragdale Foundation and the Hungry Brain, and are looking to tour in 2018. We have been supported by Chicago Dancemakers Forum, Cheney Foundation, the City of Chicago, New England Foundation for the Arts, and the Ragdale Foundation.

per erez swims in

Welcome this personal gift from the surrealist wellness gods ❤
Next UP: Sunday June 24, 12-2pm

per is a private practice based Yoga Therapist with an educational background in theatre arts. Per’s journey into learning Butoh dance have culminated as a perfect melting pot into which 30 years of his personal movement practice in yoga, tai chi, and bodywork all feel quite at home rubbing against each other. His earliest exposure to performance-visual arts included a fascination with physical theatre, Surrealism, and the writings of legendary artist, such as Jerzy Grotowski and Antonin Artaud.

Erez’s personal work in wellness has served him as a deep dive into the tantra of engaging our human bodies as a living intrapersonal, interpersonal, and impersonal experience– to be shared– through rituals of conscious movement. He has personally found that in these rituals, creative friction/frustration often catches fire, setting ablaze old notions that would separate healing from art, distinguish the body from the mind, or elevate a “higher self” beyond some mere mundane existence commonly experienced.
