Ariel starts Online Butoh Course


Good morning, movers!

I am very much looking forward to sharing some Life Resonance Butoh with you all.

The basis of the method is to enter a state of deep listening of Life in the darkness of our bodies, to gain access to a place before the separation between the “Self” and “the Otherness”. Through deep listening with our whole body, we become subconscious, thus a being that can travel in between consciousness and unconsciousness, between Tree (Ego) and Rhizome (Oneness), manifesting the different forms of Life which move and transform infinitely in the Abyss of existence. This allows us to meet infinite creativity of life which we cannot reach with our daily language thinking as it is bound by dualism.

I will be broadcasting live from Life Resonance Art Center in Dharamsala, India. You can join the sessions from the comfort of your home via Zoom on Mondays and Wednesdays at
3:30 pm:

Password: Butoh

It is an honour for me to share this method I’ve learned here in the Himalayas and help spread my mentor’s life-time research. It has transformed my life completely, and I am pretty sure it can transform yours too.

Thank you, warm resonance.

Decisions a butoh performance Happy Ghosts Adhila, Aisha, Delia,, Mishki, Myo, and Nui 
 15 March 2020

Mushimaru will be back in June

Mr. Mushimaru, who was scheduled for this year's Butoh course, was unable to come due to a decision by the Indian government on coronavirus. Mr. Mushimaru's workshop was postponed to the next opportunity. He will visit us on his return to Europe tour in late June.
Instead, Honza will guide the Butoh course. The first week started with six participants, with regular performances on Friday and street performances on the streets of Mcleod on Sunday.

 Honza


Decisions

a butoh performance
by Happy Ghosts

Dhrupad Music Playing

One by one each Happy Ghost burns the paper with desire, dips face in water and flower and takes a neutral standing position in the space. The first two ghosts are free to take a position, after this, each ghost has to decide which group to join. Groups are almost touching, light touching.
Dhrupad music fading out.

GONG

You gradually take a ghost position.
Infuse your self with the blood of dance.
The two groups of ghosts start moving in the space, each ghost going after their secret desire.
Sometimes gobbledygook (speaking in tongues)
One or two times some ghost moves from one group to the other. Quickly like a mouse or a rat. When alone take a 10 second solo about your desire.
After about 5-10 minutes groups of ghosts merge into one group.
Finding the space in between.
Suddenly Electro Swing music starts, and the group of ghosts explodes into pairs of dancing humans.
Changing partners, changing gender, fast blooming – flowering, shame – pride,
Slowing down.
Slowly infuse more blood of dance, becoming ghosts once again.
When very slow, gather as a group in front of the audience.
Music stop. Freeze
Wait until the right time. (false ending)
Then move face towards the audience.
Face Dance. Mockery
Unit I say ‘STOP: … is very important’
GONG
Connect with other dancers, make a sloppy row, take a bow, escape from the applause...

mushimaru interview 
 
 09 March 2020

Colona Virus attacks far Himalaya!

Mr. Mushimaru was planning to enter India from Sri Lanka.
Unfortunately, a few days ago it was banned by a decision of the Indian government.
It was a great blow to the Life Resonance center.
He was going to come to Himalaya beyond the hardships.
Please look at the video interview of Ms. Marumaru who looks very disappointed.
"Butoh is not something that is taught by others; it is something that you find yourself."
These short words are impressive.

Honza facilitates the regular Butoh course instead of Mr. Marumaru, and it was able to start today with international participants.
Honza's Butoh course lasts until the end of May , and we accept you throughout the whole year.
Please join us to open your hidden creativity of Life.
