|Resonance bodies (2005-2010)
2 October. 2010
The deepest beauty appears in the resonance of life.
Sometimes, we have experienced that unexpected so beautuful resonance happens
among our life.
We don't know what happens, but we notice that our life is deeply moved
I cannot explain what is the resonance body well.
The subbody is the subconscious body, and cobody is resonating subbody,
this is the normal explanation about subbody and cobody.
I have reserched subbody and cobody for long years, but acctually the relationship
between subbody and cobody is a deep mystery and unsolved secret for me.
I cannot explain the relationship with normal logical word. Because it
is beyond logic at all.
Why subbody transforms from subbody to cobody suddenly?
At that moment, the border between the individual and the group disappears.
What is that?
And at the moment our life was moved deeply.
Recently I got an awaerness that the beauty must connect to the life resonance
at the unknown dimension.
It is unknown mystery that's why I research it.
Always I am waiting for the beautifull moment when the unexpected resonance
Hope to join in this research together with us.
This is sure that it is worth to research for life long.

Multi resonance body
When we could take off our ego and self, it becomes able to listen in the
subtle life resonance. Life is resonating with multi dimensional qualia
at the same time. This is the biggest different point between the consciousness
The consciousness can do only one thing at the same time, thinking, feeling,
imaging, talking and so on.
But, life is resonating with gravity, light, sound, air, wind, weather,
and inner memories or dreams about them, at the same time. The life
of cell has so deep memories which was reserved during the four billion
years. But the consciousness doesn't notice it.
Then we need to stop our consciousness and listen in the life.

A miracle of life resonance
Subbody and cobody started subtle ife resonance at the subbody-cobody theater
of the last week of the first semester.
There are no subject and no object in the resonance.
It just happens transparently as a oneness of resonance among subbody
and cobody. When dancers can stop ego and self on the stage, it happens.
This is the miracle what I wanted to see for long years.
To become oneness is the most important thing for theater. If each dancer
could show excelent technique, but the stage could not become oneness,
the theater is just cold.
Before, yes, sometimes the theater crystalized into oneness, as Hijikata's
butoh theater. But it was depended on an excelent choreograper's irection
and control ability. Without a special choreographer by only life resonance
among dancers has happened. It is the first time for me to see. Even though
it is just the very beginning of them, like as an embryo.
I live to meet it for long years.

The midwife and the life resonance
The principle of subbody method is resonance of life.
How can we recover and facilitate the life resonance which has been forgotten
for the daily body in the modern human society, is the most important thing.
There are no teachers in the life resonance, because there are no subject
and no object in the resonance. We could be only a midwife who listen in
the breath of fetus of subbody and cobody, and help the birth of them.
They are hidden in the depth of our darkness of body. We need to stop thinking
and listen in the subtle signal of tendencies of them. There are no border
between one's body and the others body, the subbody and cobody are oneness
at the deep realm. When they come out, ocasionally they become subbody
The important five contents of midwife method are the following;
1. Become egoless and selfless condition, and open life resonance transparently.
2. Tree-rhizome mrthod
3. Ripple method
4. Facilitate the subbody-cobody process
5. Edge work
In this month, long term studetns will start to learn midwife process as
1. Starting to guide the conditioning process
2. Finding the best connection between conditioning and reseaching a specfic
hidden qualia; hidden skins, hidden fluid, hidden cavities, hidden muscles,
hidden joints, hidden nerves, and hidden eyes.
3. Reseaching the total connection among the conditioning, reseaching and
creating our ten bodies; Quiet body, Weakened body, Proto body, Passive
body, Hidden body, Vaporized body, Fossil body, bottom body, Kugutsu body,
Nest body, Possessed body, Anima-Animus body, Transparent body and various
Life is resonating with everything. The life resonance continued from the
beginning at four billion years ago.

Dancers can co-create a world through resonance
In the second week of August intensive cource, we learn Hijikata's Bugs
Dancers can create a world together flexibly with resonance.
It is excredible wonderful thing, no other genle art can do like this.
Subbody butoh dancers are pioneer for how to create an Utopia by life resonance.
Our experiment of co-creation a world will be resorce for future system
of new human society.
My work is to bring up students to super creators same as Hijikata.

Resocracy: a method for co-creating a world
Now we get a method to co-create a world through only life resonance, without
any force, control, argument, and direction, though it is only the biginning.
We call it "Resocracy".
In the summer intensive workshop, we concentrate on the life resonance.
Everyday we start from breath of life, and feel our lives are resonating
with multi-dimansional qualia, gravity, levity, temperature, moisture,
air pressure, sound, light, and so on.
Not only these physical qualia, life resonates with inner qualia; memories,
dreams, imaginations, illusions, and so on at the same time.
We need to stop rough daily mind and body, becouse these inner qualia are
so subtler than physical qualia.
When we become subbody mode, we can feel the subtle resonance.
We continued it for these two weeks, with listening in the darkeness of
body, catching subtle signal, and following it, amplifing it to each subbody
And free resonance between each other's creation.
This third week, we entered the next stage to co-create each world of subbody
together thorugh life resonance. We have almost found the method, as the
1. Getting the conditioning method
The conditioning is the essence of subbody method. We continue it everyday
in different ways. Then students can get the way of them.
Conditioning has some stages; the first stage is to release from dayly
conditions. Breathing, swaying, vibrating conditioning are the this stage.
The second stage is to open resonativity to various qualia; gravity, levity,
warmth, coldness, fluidity, solidity, vaporing and so on. They are to become
everything; gas, stone, liquid, creature, hidden characters, archetypes,
and so on.
3. Finding own qualia
Each student meets various qualia in the dakness of body. When one follows
it, one can become something. Through these self reserch, each sudent get
own unique qaualia.
4. Sharing each own qualia by conditioning
Next stage is sharing each unique qualia by each conditioning.
This week students found each own qualia as the following;
-Volucanic stone ember
-Flower without baby
-Heavy snow lion
Each student invented own conditioning way to share these qualia, and guided
other students. When students get these qualia as a group, we can create
a specific world by cobody movement.
5. Finding best combnation between subbdoy and cobody through resonance
This week we practiced these experiments. We asked each life, "What
world do you want to dance in?". "which relationship with the
world do you want to dance?"
Our life has each unique experiece with or against world., as a pressure,
bind, strict, struggle, trauma, and so on. If we find own dance with or
against a world, it must be necessary dance for life. Students tried diverse
combinations among subbody and cobody with various timing and spacing.
These experiments must become so rich treasures for resocracy which we
create a world together through only life resonance.
Slowly we are creating them. This is so exciting experience as a life.
So, we can release from the existing way of choreography which only a choreographer
creates a world and directs dancers by one's own image.
I continued to investigate in it for long years, now finally we are finiding
