Red light butoh


In the light of intimate meeting, this research was curious about what kind of resonance we could find if one dancer was to meet one on one with one person of the audience. Questioning the depth of this possible meeting, what could come out of this intimacy, how deep could the dance go, how honesty comes when meeting in this closeness. Who is the performer if there is only two people meeting. What are the limits of each person in this meeting? Those are few questions we had in mind, that where for us a motor and a frightening challenge. During the performance, beautiful meetings, moments of intimate resonance. Thank you to the generous dancers and audience for this great red light night.

Falling Night/ Kristien and cobody

Night throws a dark blue blanket over the
body, as if to keep it safe.
There is no such hiding place.
Footsteps approach
strange creatures enter
songs of another world tremble into the bones
of the helpless body
no story, no names, no time...
no logic can be applied here

What to do?
Listen
Listen through the hidden skin
Listen most carefully
to what life wants to share
While falling into endless night

Rapping Up/ Honza and cobody

 Street Action at the Start of the 6th Himalaya Butoh Festival.

Free Resonance Cobody on the theme of freedom, constriction and nurture, which is my main research subject at this moment.

This is the unedited full 35 minutes, probably a bit boring except for the hardcore butoh die-hards and students...
Thanks to my classmates for making this possible

The time to integrate


The last stage of creation is to integrate all subbodies-cobodies during these three months.
Most of students could integrate total one hour subbodies-cobodies.
Next is just to ask subbody to integrate all of them with finding the best Jo-Ha-Kyu.
If it will succeed we can dance the whole self.
But always thinking channel comes out and disturbs it by limited story in the last creative stage.
It is pity to limit the so rich resouse into narrow story by thought.
We need to learn to calm down thinking channel and focus on the listening in the darkness of body.
How to break habitual thinking---next work is to challenge it bravely.
It must take time at least one year or more to get it.
