butohbutoh class

Butoh (dance of transformation) is an avant-garde dance philosophy/method created in Japan at the end of the 1950s. These sessions will explore the main elements of Butoh including metamorphoses, dance through imagery, presence, awareness and the tension between opposites. The aim is to free the body from its mundane preconceived set of gestures in order to access a deeper and more authentic essence of movement and archetypal expression.

Suitable for complete beginners and those with experience in dance, movement, somatic disciplines or performing arts.
