Mitsu Salmon July 19- August 9
About Mitsu’s class:
Drawing from Butoh and body mind centering, this class will explore the connection with body, mind and imagery.
The class will be composed of the following
1. Exercises of Noguchi (which were integrated into Butoh training). The body is thought of as water and the goal is to release the natural body.
2. Guided imagery with movement, structured and improvised
3. Body and mind centering exercises, working with breathe and body connection.
Mitsu Salmon was a member of the Butoh company, Ima Tenko and Kiraza for 3 years in Japan as well a member of Katsura Kan and Saltimbanques for one year. Any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

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~
Adam Rose of Antibody Corp. will be teaching Butoh Body from 12-2pm January 19 and Feb 2.
