50 years dialogue with my dead friend, Yamazaki

To old friends, and new friends

I apologize for long time retreat in Himalayas.
A little bit before, I heard that there are plans to built a monument of Yamazaki after 3 years from Japanese friends, then The Dead Yamazaki who was sleeping in my darkness of body, began to wake up and started dancing.
I announced it to just a few old friend which I knew the e-mail address.
Here, I will inform you during this period of history.

October 8, 1967, on the Benten bridge in Haneda, Tokyo, Hiroaki Yamazaki who was my high school classmate was killed in the Anti-Vietnam War movement. Age at death was 18 years old.
He became the first Dead in the student protestant movement in 1970' of total more than 80 people.

It have passed 47 years from then.
In the 20s, and 30s, I have lived as a copywriter.
But, it does not seem far from what's my life.
After divorced 20 years ago, I became free away from all relationship, family, friendship, I decided to live as a Butoh dancer.
The deep shock which I received from the Butoh performance of Tatsumi Hijikata, when I saw in Kyoto University at the beginning of the 20s, it have continued as if my head had been hit with such a big bell.

Hiroaki Yamazaki and the other dead friends, Toshiaki Tsuji, Kenzo Hashimoto, Mochizuki, Okudaira, and Honda who appeared in my nightmare, suddenly began to dance with using my body, they brought out my body to the world.
I began to perform around the world from end of 20C.
I have performed and had workshops at about 20 countries on the planet.
Someone who was not me was driving my body and danced at the various place in the world, and resonated with the each local deads, Auschwitz, Budapest, Tibet, Cambodia, Yugoslavia, Palestina, Amazon and so on.
I named it as "subbody".
The subbody means the subconscious body, and subtle body refered to in the traditional meditation.
Under conscious world, awareness and body are not separated as everyday world, they are merged in oneness and transforming beyond time-space, I noticed that.
Then, I started to share it with young people from ten years ago, in the poor village of Dharamsala in the Himalayas in the nothern India.
I built at the Subbody Resonance Butoh School Himalayal, the darkness of the body of the young people who come from around the world
To help the creativity and so live as <midwife> for these 15 years.

When it was informed of the plan to built the Yamazaki 50 anniversary monument from a friend of high school and University, my subbody that had been asleep the last 15 years awake again, and started dancing suddenly in the middle of Poland workshop in this summer.
To resemble a rock which stood in the pond "Yamazaki Rock", I hit the rock by stone.
While beating, the beating is not me, but I noticed that Yamazaki was hitting my frozen body.
After that, also In Himalaya my subbody danced with a rock on this October 8.
Dance will continue to grow little by little.
It will grow up during three years till the coming performance in Japan, October 8th, 2017.
The fifty years dialog with Yamazaki may calm down at that time..

'The Invisible in the City' Maki, Pamela, Gaurang, Aga, Raissa, Udit and Piyu

Last weekend, students co-created a long piece shared with the qualia of invasion by the Electronic-magnatic wave in the modern city life that Maki met in September as own qualia instead of Bug's qualia in the 'Bugs walk'.
In therealm of Life, there is no distinction between subbody and cobody, between individual and group. We co-create a world that one of us want to dance in it eargaly, and deepen own subbody-cobody.
It is invisible, but all Life must feel fear of evil effection from the modern life behind the convinience of it.

Everyone feels the subtle fear which is symbolized by the invisible electromagnetic waves behind the convinience of modern life, is invading Life. The dance lasted an hour and a half in total.
Especially, in the second part that connected solo-duo-solo-duo, very realistic subbody dance came out one after another.
Someone danced what oneself is controlled by the computer, someone danced unknown fear in the city, someone danced the invasion by the TV game. Maybe, it was one of the necessary dance to survive for each.
And, in that chaotic cobody world, each individual subbody is possible to deepen subbody-cobody dance for oneself.
Hijikata Tatsumi explored the invisible resonance between Life and the 'bihind world' in "Sick dancing Princess" in one volume, in diverse multi-dimansional resonance pattern in his childhood background as the Tohoku Japan. And now, the young butoh dancers are deepening it by replacing it in the 21st Century.
So, now and here, we are modernizing the Life Resonance with the invisible 'behind world' qualia.
It's so, this is what's a butoh world of "Sick Dancing Princess" in the 21st century.
Many years it took, finally we are able to reach the wellhead of the necessity of the Butoh of Life.

Nenkin Butoh Dan presents:

Every year, Subbody School begins around 11 March.
We have danced with the Life Resonance with Fukushima on that day every year.
Life is resonating with all events around the world quietly even being separated.
How Gadu will deepen and develope it with the subbody = cobody of the United States,
I'm looking forward to.

The Cowles Center for Dance & The Performing Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota

“Fu-Ku-Shi-Ma” is inspired by the earthquake and
tsunami in Tohoku region of Japan on March 11th, 2011.
The earthquake shook the buildings and tsunami tore
the cities apart. Standing before the power of nature,
we witnessed that we were so small and powerless.

Gadu, a Subbody Butoh practitioner and a Japanese
native, dedicates this performance to the power of
nature and the spirits of those who lost their lives that

Yamazaki, Hit my frozen body by stone! 4
in Himalaya Rhizome Lee

In this Summer, in Poland, my old dead friend, Yamazaki Hiroaki woke up and started dancing.
He used my body and danced three times, at first in the pond of the stone pit, the second time in the rocky mountain, the third time in the darkness of old house.
And this is the fourth one at Himalaya Rock Garden.
We can dance at any place where a rock stands as the Yamazaki Stone.

”Yamazaki, wake up!
Yamazaki, reborn!"

I started hitting a rock by stone, but in the middle of it, subject and object turn revesely. Who is hitting is not me, but Yamazaki.
I felt that Yamazaki is hitting my body that has been frozen as a rock to get awakening.

October 8, 1967, while shouting to stop the Vietnam War, Yamazaki stopped his breath near the Haneda International Air port, is trying to reborn.
The 50 death anniversary of 2017, old friends are trying to built a monument of Yamazaki near Haneda, Tokyo.
I will continue this dance many times over three years up to that time, in different places, and will grow up to a long piece.
Also in this time, many forgotten memories woke up, and let me dance it, not only about Yamazaki, but also many other memories that wes unremembered. I feel this is the last chance to integrate all the mystery and secret hidden in the darkness of body as one Life. If success or not is not important, just it is unavoidable for my Life.

Subbbody Resonance Butoh School 2017 Autumn semester will be held in Japan, rather than Himalaya.
I want to expand the Nomad Rhizome tour in Japan during September, October, and November, 2017.
Please join in it together, or support the tour in various ways.
We want to bring a new way of Life to become a Rhizome that connects freely and separares flexiblly. Because I believe that it is only realistic way to change the world instead of the old political movement.
