Chaos in the potato brewing factory

Second week of eX ... it!, 80 participants were divided in four groups, and co-created 4 butoh pieces of 20 minutes each.
The other three groups, Takenouchi Atsushi, Nakajima Natsu and Yukio Waguri has created the choreography pieces.
17 dancers of Lee and Umiumare Yumi group co-created a chaos in the ex-potatoes brewing factory.
Because I am a midwife of the subbody rather than a choreographer, I guided a just conditioning of the body and researching the darkness of body, and just lisetened to what movements would come out from their body.
Umiumare Yumi who was my partner wanted to attempt the transformation between the everyday and the extraordinary, dancers were devided into three roles; paranoid cleaners, pretenders and Yami (darkness).
It's a theatrical way which was true contrary to me, but I tryed to listen to the process, what chaos would come out from the resonance between her way and subbodies, it must become a chaos.

I just added an idea that three dead appeared from the underground, and occured a unknown resonance with the human world people. It became a nothing but ridiculous chaos.
People in this group enjoyed suffering of the unknown chaos, dreaming, crying, shouting, calming, and so on.

Decades of experience of ferment about this chaos will lead to new awareness or novel creation in the darkness of the body.
That's fine.

The Shining of Resonant Rhizome

In the Life to dance Resonant Rhizome, deep joy and beauty that has been released from the restraint of the Tree system which our human has been bound 5000 years, is oozing.
How the hierarchical order, such as nation-state, religion, company and ego has been continued to inhibit the resonativity, originality and creativity of Life. And how the Life which is released from it is shining with full of joy and novel beauty.
I would like you to taste the Resonant Rhizome in the Pictures at Spanish Himalayan mountains above.

Resonance Rhizome is realized by stopping the daily thinking and judgment by simple conditioning with swaying or vibrating body, and become transparent subconscious mode that opens inside 50%, outside 50%. We can connect freely and separate flexibly with inventing half and infecting half.
It just opens the proto-resonativity of Life, with same resonance patterns or different resonance patterns, then so rich diversity of Life Resonance is opened.

The free and flexible movements of Spanish participants are shining so briliantly.
Do you think you still want to continue daily life that has been bound to a tree, even looking at them?
Please be listened to Life.
Ask your Life, "What is the thing you want most to do?"
"Do you want to live how and where?"
Listen to the Life at any moment and follow the voice of the innermost Life.

Opening the way to the future of human beings

Resonance Rhizome is, not merely in the way of dancing.
It releases our Life from the bondages of modern hierarchical tree order, and connects to the future of human being with full of Life Resonance.
In the Resonant Rhizome there is no center, no border of up and down, no in and out, self and you and me.
Rhizome is able to connect freely and separate flexubly through resonance.
The somatic experience of the Resonant Rhizome opens the creativity of Life with full of resonativity and originality that has been sealed in the long history of the tree system is fully flowering.
Don't you bloom your unique flower of Life?

Overcoming the ego

By Resonance Rhizome, the way to practically overcome the ego has been discovered.
In the long history, the Ego and the common illusions of Tree system such as Nation-State has been a support in a complementary manner.
We live in the long entanglement of archetype, prototype, and common illusion.
The ego is the biggest archtype still remained in the contemporary world.
Among the highly mature information society of the modern, any political movement are all disabled.
However, the information system can not controll the Life Resonance.
It seems the long way, but Life Resonance is the deepest and most cirtain way to change the world.

Let's calm down the ego and become Resonant rhizome! Through the practical experience, the road to the future that will be released from Ego and from common illusions is opened.
Why do not you step forward in its way?

Sinking into darkness of the body

Let's become Resonant Rhizome

At the 10th Himalayan Butoh Festival of this year, I performed after ten years absent, and gave "Resonant Rhizome" workshop for people.
And I found the direction which my Life really want to proceed for the future.
That's what all of my history of the past has crystalized.
I call it as <Resonant Rhizome>.
Some of most important elements are unified there.

To become transparent

One thing is < To become transparent >.
If we try to dance in front of people, everyone including me is bound to <Self>.
It is inevitable not only for people who accept the modern western concept that dance is a way of self expression using the body, but also for Subbody Butoh that stops consciousness and become subconscious-body, too.
Each subbody which has been lurking in the depth of the darkness of body by inhibited to express in this society in infancy and early childhood, has a hidden immature small ego.
Subbody does not know how to resonate properly with this society, sometimes it comes out violently.
But, if we would have been dominated by the strong urge of the small ego, we are caught by the momentum of the outbursts of ego that was the suppressed long years, the creation become sloppy.
We need to be transparent which we are neither bound by inner various impulse, nor by a variety of pressure or influence from the outside.
Transparent means not to be caught in anything.
It is necessary to maintain the exact balance to listen to inner tendencies 50%, and listen to outer elements 50% constantly.

Dance the resonance of the self and the world

I have continued to investigate to be transparent for over 20 years, but it is not easy thing.
But, slowly in recent year, the way became clear finally.
It is to dance the self half and the other half to dance the world, to dance from self side 50%, and dance from world side 50%.
Though it is too difficult to dance so by alone, but it become able if we could take off the Ego and Self as modern human, and we become the <Resonant Rhizome> which transform between individual and group flexibly beyond the border of self and others, or the self and the world.
We can dance sometimes as a self which is threatened by the world, and dance sometimes as a world which attack the self.
In the <Resonant Rhizome> the both side of the self and the world is always exchanged frequently, the fixed role is disappeared.
The dualistic conflict between the self and the world is just illusion, because actually it is just the resonance among them.
We can approach to the reality of the resonance of everything.

Co-create the resonant world

The way to the real "Butoh of Life" will be open by becoming the <Resonant Rhizome> which we can transform everything in the Universe.
We become the invisible "Behind World" which
TatsumiHijikata have tried in his "Quiet House" , or "The huge creature which lives in the air" in his "Sick Dancing Princess".
It is the hidden main charactor in it. So human is not main charactor in Hijikata's world. He focused on the resonance among Life and the invisible world as the actual situation of Life.
We can open a novel horizon which it will not be important issue whether to be oneself or not to be oneself anymore as my philosophical teacher
Gilles Deleuze suggested 50 years ago.
Hijikata had oriented so, too as the <Butoh that is called the name of Life>.

I won't do anything else to the most important thing for my Life.
Ko Murobushi which is only one year elder then me died recently, also I might disappear whenever near the days.
Ko Murobushi read and loved Gilles Deleuze deeply, too.
We focused on the same horizon which we human must be released from the hierarchic "Tree" system which binds the modern society.
The modern world which is controlled by the strong informational system, is not able to change by the any existing way of the political movement.
I beleive that it is the only real way for changing the world to become the <Resonant Rhizome> which people take off the modern Ego and Self and transform to resonant Life.
Because the informational system cannot control the Life Resonance.
We will open up the future of the human being through becoming the <Resonant Rhizome>.
I will continue to deepen it through the coming summer workshops in Europe and the second semester of Subbody Resonant School Himalaya. It would be my last activity as midwife.
Hope to join in us!
