Kan Walk

We study Kan Qualia that Hijikata collected for his whole life.
Kan means Life couldn't resonate well. The most Butohtic Qualia. We studyed them in the 212 Chapter of "The Butoh", and I selected as a Kan Walk butoh-fu as the follwoing.

Kan Walk

1. Start from Ash walk or own weakened body
2. Squekey air
3. A plant grows up from inner organ to temple
4. A bird flying away from the temple
5. Place the whereabouts into your body
6. A rocomotive passes in your body
7. Gauged and melt
8. Wire in the body
9. Stain into the wall
10 Crack
11. Rock cicada's eye
12 Torn God
13. Framen or your own Kan body

We danced this walk and I gave a homework to create own Butoh-fu with using Hijikata's Kan Qualia or own Qualia.

Next day we danced each own Butoh-fu.
It came out so diverse Kan Qualia as the following;

Mrs. God by Jitu

1. Hundred year old woman with Alzhimer's lost, alone in highway as night
2. Alien dance music from afar
3. Flower grows out o sex organs guides to the source of music
4 Blorred wandering a foreign city
5. Slow expression into a swarm of crowds

El Camino (The Road) by Omar:

The itch

Wander inside the ear

Right eye and left side of the face melts

Face of the forest

Being confined to the crystal

Old woman is being kissed

The gravekeeper

Locked in a small room in the chest

I disappear into the Haze

For the Dead by Piu:

An abused doll smoulders busubusu

It is snowing very much and you get diarrhoea

Your friends start dying around you.

Both life and death rejects you.

These scars suck up your breath and out of the body

Your internal organs dehydrate fully

Neck, Muscles, Cavities, Fluids etc. all body stiffens

You become confined in a shiny crystal cage

The dead are resting around you

Rise up fuelled by all the darkeness and breakthrough the cage

Blurred face comes forward

You travel through many realms and your face and gaze changes in each so you give myriad faces and gazes

You are moved from your chest towards the hazy ashes around a puneral pyre

Doll body disintegrates into the hazy ashes

You disappear into the hazy ashes

A Ghost plays a haunting music

A banshee wails

Dream Gone Wrong by Gora:

Come down the valley after ingesting LSD

You are in hallucinaton mode

You find a garbage dump on the way

Insert or ear plastic and metal from the garbage

Shedding off of the skeleton

Become a stuffed bag

Falling into the river

Swallowed by Anaconda

By Samar:

A repeated cold thought embedded(covered) with so many questions attacks your school

This though has a relationship with another thought - and another thought - another thought - a.. and so on.

When you talked to all that there is no thought or questions remaining.

Your all thoughts melt don and drain out to the river and leaves you in a genuine (creative) state.

Now, you can smile.

So many unique Qualia came out. Through this experiment we got confidence to create each own Butoh-fu and use it for the co-creation.
We can open novel posibility for co-creation in the next semester.

Behind world share

Life resonates with countless invisible ”Behind Worlds”.
We will stop our daily thinking by medimotion conditioning and become subbody = co-bodied mode which our body can meet freely countless forgotten Qualia of the darkness of the body. We share and co-create each Behind world.
It has become an interesting journey to follow various aspects of Life. In the summer and winter intensive course, we are making new experiments.
We do not yet know what kind of Butoh is born through this quest. But, sometimes we can see the future in these experiments.
