WORKSHOP BUTOH AND SENSITIVE DANCE® with KEA TONETTI live music by TIVITAVI
JULY 18th, 19th and 20th,10:00 - 18:00 o'clock, LONDON
“Let the soul wear the cosmos, entering the kingdom of a original body memory” Kazuo Ohno.
Sensitive dance helps to awake the body movements from sensations, in an organic way, and to carry our own body in the space, inhabiting it. Allows us to discover again the sense of human verticality, opening our own perception of the world and leading us to revisit the wonderful steps of human's evolution, from the cell in suspension to the standing position, from the prenatal life in the water, to the life on the earth.
Butoh dance is poetry, dream, instinct, feeling, irrationality, strength and fragility, memory, metamorphosis dance; in which, more than dancing we are danced, more than showing something we are becoming something, fully open to live totally the instant, and letting forms born from silence, as expressions of the Soul. Butoh dance allows to live and dance deeply, through the body, inner states, emotions, landscapes, fears and desires, demons and angels, poetry and catharsis, awakening the pureness of the child and of the nature, with freedom and no judgment. Witness and experience the birth of Beauty, is not something purely aesthetic, but is a state of Being, that creates the Presence and goes beyond the outward forms.
It is something unspeakable and holy, it is the Wonder.
Some elements :
• Awake the relationship with the ground, our roots and the hearth of the planet.
• Walk and stand, inhabit the body.
• Feel the energy flowing through the spine
• Spirals, waves and infinite: energetic movements belonging to life.
• Develop a sensitive listening in the contact with the others.
• Develop different qualities of the body and of the space (density, fineness, heaviness and lightness, bigness and smallness)
• Awake the Ki, the life essence, the strength of life that flows from our vital center.
• The process of metamorphosis in body and soul, dance the spirit and the energy of the nature elements, a painting, an arcane, a poetry, a child, an old woman…….
• Generate emotions and poetry, in awakening inner landscapes and ancient memories of the body.
• The Presence
• Express, create and pray while dancing, giving yourself with love.
In the end of the workshop each participant will have the opportunity to dance a solo.
