December is here. Whether we indulge in celebrations or not, the year surely feels coming to a rest. Just before leaping into the festive holidays, we will host a Butoh evening.
On the 5th of December, Choko Butoh Dublin Research Group and I, will be guests of DAO Tai Chi Ireland. The evening is part of furthering the awareness of Butoh as a dance art form and a space for creativity and exploration in Dublin, Ireland.
As an art form, Butoh, is highly accessible. It can be practiced and used for various scopes not only by performers. If you are, the training and body method inherent in Butoh, can enhance your body awareness, aid and support your creative process, challenge you to venture into unknown territories with improvisation and transformations via visual solicitations.
For those that come to Butoh moved by curiosity, it has been proven to offer ways to relax the everyday accumulation of tension and offer a platform that supports the expression of one’s own imagery though movement and stillness. Butoh body method facilitates every type of bodies and explores the infinite possibility of movement and sensation.
If you are in Dublin, I hope you can join us and share with us the intimacy of the space and moving bodies in their narrative and poetic imagery.
