Santeri is second year of subbody experience. It is growing up each time

To see the continuos growth of subbody was big pleasure for me.
Subbody butoh is growing and deepening like this.
Santeri keep deepning!
It became a mini subbody festival on the last two days of Poland workshop.
During four weeks work, we tried to open only Proto body, Hidden body Bottom
body in Ten-bodies and just various resonance patterns among subbody=cobody
and behind world.
I didn't guide the Hijikata Butoh method and technique so much.

Fourth week of workshops in Poland, each one reseached own depth with finding
strange land scape in the rock mountain; on the rock, under the rock, between
rocks or on the tree and so on.
By passing through various land scapes, it reminded own inner constellation
of the darkness of body. This reseach which sinks into each depth prepared
the extreme explosion of the own creation at the end of mini-festival of
Fourth week of workshops in Poland, we danced Nomad Rhizome in the forest.
We put the powdered charcoal of bonfire on the face and body.
This is the metamorphic magic for dancing in the woods with 'the behind
When the body wore the Spirit of the forest, it regained the wild as if
we went back to the mind and body of the distant ancestors, such as the
Cro-Magnon or Neanderthal in the Stone Age.
Unexpected subbodies came out from one after another.
One day, three old students; Honza, kaska, and Monika performed in the

time to dance together.
Some day in a few years, we will hold "The 1st world Subbody=cobody
gathering", probably at the Fiedinterra in Italy( Chiara and Francesca's
farm) or other place. Please wait for the notication.
After long conditioning to enter the subbody mode, we draw inner subbody

And exchange to other drawing, we resonate with movement channel, visual(=eye)

One day of 2nd week, some students found an old stone pit trace, and we
visit there with slow walking meditation to open our body to the nature,
and danced there.
