<Dreaming Share ver.02 with changing places>

This year, we found novel way of resonance almost everyday.
The way of <Dreaming Share> developped to ver.02.

1. Everybody becomes lucid dreaming mode through the conditioning 2 new version. It is simple, we are moved by someone with very slow speed into various directions. Then we can easily become subbody mode.
And follow the dreaming by whole body.

2. We move to another place from the studio and continue the lucid dreaming.

3. We decide the group (A,B) and the order by lottery.

4. First person(A1) guide the other people of the group A to one's place and initiate with word or movement, A group co-create A1's dreaming world. B group support it by audio resonance.

5. Next person(B1) guide and co-create.

It was amazingly interesting co-creation than ever.
(See the videos)
We got the novel way of co-creation, this wil be one of the basic of co-creation of the year.

This would be develope to <Proto dream theater ver.02>, <Rhizoming share ver.02>, <Resonant Rhizome ver.02> and so on.

Dark House

Usually we go to nature on Thursday, but this week it was stormy wheather, then we shift to the school house.
At first everybody found favourite place in the house, and research the subbody with dreaming.
After then we exchange the place by lottery.

A person was guided by another person to his/her place with blindfold, and danced there.
And the first guide person started whispering his dreaming to his blindfolded partner.
Then suddenly the <Blind Guide> and <Dreaming Share> merged and became one.

It grew up to so interesting day as you can see the video above.
This year. I stopped all planning and programing of the class, and just listened to the various Qualia of everybody's darkness of body.
Then through Qualia and Qualia resonance, so many unexpected novel ideas of researching came out everyday.

This would be a fortune of Non-dual.

7th Fukushima 3.11 Resonance

We resonated with the Qualia of the deseaster attacked north east Japan 7years ago.
The largiest Earthquake M9.0, 20m hieght Tsunami, Explosion of Atomic plants and melt down, Radiation leak. It still continues to spread radiation into the Pacific Ocean.
We resonated with the small creature in the ocean, when they are attacked byt the radiation, the DNA of cells mutated, and makes body malformed mutant.
Each part of body is twisted, bend, shrunk and disabled.
We continued to share the misery of small creature's Life every year of 3.11 Anniversary day.

It is first or second week of the Subbody Resonance Butoh Himalaya every year. We start from the deep resonance as Life. It becomes a tradition of the Subbody school.

This year some old students come back to the school, Ozerk(Turkey) after 9 years, Lisa (Germany) after 5 years and so on. I am so happy to meet them and dance together.
We will continue to deepen Subbody method constantly.

A Sudden Change

I was trapped by an entanglement of anger, sadness, hatred and unexpressed love to my mother for long years, because my mother suddenly had disappeared when I was 3 years old. But, last Friday a sudden change happened.
In the researching with the blindfold guided by Pamela in the Subbody Winter course, I remembered a tale that my mother told me. It is a story that Lion pushs the baby down under the cliff to train the baby stronger. Strangely, I could accept all experiences in my childhood as this tale. I appreciate to my parents to give me the hard challenge, and it made me tough. Last Friday I danced it in the Garden. Falling down the stairs and climbing up it to build myself. I tried to dance my unknown Anima with a small bicycle.
Slowly it seems that I could be released from my infantile trauma.

Resonant Rhizome of Smoke Bug

This winter, we postpone the annual India tour to 2019,
Instead of it, we continue the work in Himalaya during the winter at the newly established Resonance Studio.
I planed to write "Transparency", "The Butoh" and other books of pending issues for lonf years.
I want to continue the listening to Life "What Life really wants to do".
In December, Silas, guides the Winter Subbody Course as a midwife, and Pamela will do it in January and February.
I began to join in it as a comfortable one participant.
Suddenly my dancing spirit awakens and the brain-mind-body returns to the dancer.
I had a feeling of extremely liberating freedom of creativity rising from one to the next after a long absence. I noticed that I usually gave such a happiness to the students.

Anyway, unexpected emergence may occur besides the plan of writing for this winter.
"Rhizome of Smoke Bug" are a sentense at the biggining of "Sick Dancing Princess" by Tatsumi Hijikata.
The several lines were added by him when it was publisshed as a book.
Well, here was condensed the essence of "Sick Dancing Princess".
"That will be an insect on the way of Life reincarnation", an old man of his local land talked about, is the crystarized essence of the world view of Animism that was the background of this book.
It was the same as "Shisha" written in the butoh scores of Hijikata's last solo "Quiet House".
"The Shisha (dead) transform quietly yet infinitely."
Hijikata has noticed that the infinite resonativity and transformablity of Qualia which was the greatest discovery in the history of mankind discovered in the Animism Age.
"Smoke bug"and "Shisha" are similar symbol of Animistic veiw of the world.

Infinite transforming Qualia in Animism =Shisha (Dead)=Smoke Bug

I will follow the essence of the butoh revolution that Hijikata was grapsing.
"Rhizome of Smoke Bug" is to dance the infinite transformation as a Cobody of <Resonant Rhizome>, not only solo Butoh performance.
First of all, on the first day there were few audience, but we received full acclaim.
In this winter, we try to vary this "Smoke Bug's Rhizome", with changing various arrangement.
Let's invent devising psychosomatic techniques that will be necessary from next year.

Become Wolf!
Become Bee's swarm, Mole's tonnel!
Become Rhizome,
and a Secret!

Adam mailed me.

"I've been reading Deleuze's A Thousand Plataeus, and in his 2nd plataeu (one or several wolves) describing his "becoming-wolf" he describes something that immediately made me think of a free-resonance sort of creative cobody"

"I am on the edge of the crowd, at the periphery; but I belong to it. I am attached to it by one of my extremities, a hand or a foot. I know that the periphery is the only place I can be, that I would die if I let myself be drawn into the center of the fray, but just as certainly if I let go of the crowd. This is not an easy position to stay in. It is even very difficult to hold, for these beings are in constant motion and their movements are unpredictable and follow no rhythm. They swirl, go north, then suddenly east; none of the individuals in the crowd remains in teh same place in relation to the others. So I too am in perpertual motion; all this demands a high level of tension, but it gives me a feeling of violent, almost vertiginous happiness. (page 29)"

I replyed.

"What's a coincidence!
That part is what I just am going to recommend you.
There is the deepest secret and mystery of subbody and cobody.
I have continued to research it for 20 years.
Please try to guide to that cobody to the various participants.
So many rich hints, you must get.
'Mille Plateaux' is one of the most interesting Butoh text. I believe so."

At the last Friday theater, Adam and cobody danced the "Becoming Wolf", and it became a dynamic <Resonant Rhizome> that everybody expanded the space and passed through with dancing.

"Wow! The is the real <Resonant Rhizome>!
Finally you got it!"

My dream is coming true that the world starts dancing and changing to Rhizome!.

Fashion Butoh Excercise Guided by Adam 
4 October, 2017


 This week, 6 old researchers guided the class instead of Lee as the co-midwife tp listen to each other and support each other for the birth of novel subbody=cobody.
In the Subbody Butoh, there is no teacher, no students, but midwife to listen to the subtle breath of subbody=cobody and support the safe birth, to open infinite creativity of Life.
It is the process to transform to Rhizome which can connect freely and separate flexiblly beyond all kinds of borders.
Rhizome is a sprout form of future of human without any Hierarchical Tree order that was found by a philosopher, Gilles Deleuze (1967).
This pics (Total 18) are in the Adam's guide of his "Fashion Butoh Exercise".
Please crick the picture above to see all pictures.

"Beyond the boundaries 3" Wheelchair Butoh in Hungary

Wheelchair Butoh in Hungary entitled "Beyond the Boundary" is the third time this year.
The title came from the word that a wheelchair person said in the first year, ”We have been treated in two ways. One is as useless children, the other is another is as an object of nursingcare. But to be able to dance together beyond the boundaries is the happiest experience. "
Yes, We will continue dancing, until every boundary disappears from the earth.

Subtle Listening by Ma Dar at the Wheelchair Butoh Workshop in Hungary
Subtle Listening by Ma Dar 

Ma Dar(Dara) guided Subtle Qulaia Listening at the Wheelchair Butoh workshop in Hungary.
She used a paper with chaniging the shape and how to listen to the subtle Qualia with handicapped participants.
Participants was fascinated so earnestly to listen to the physical and memorial Qualia of the paper.
It was so beautiful Resonance that everybody became One as Life.
In the past she was working to care of disabled people.
That experience was fully made use of.
This is the Origin of Ma Dar's midwife.
I did not understand the Hungarian words, but the Qualia that she guided was so rich and various transformations.
After using paper, she guided to listen to subtle invisible Qualia without paper.
This was the 3rd day, on the 4th day, she continued it with using each one's favorite things, it lead each one's so intimate forgotten memories with favourite book or doll and so on.
And 5th day was with water bag.
In the guiding the last performance, she guided a walk with resonating each one's water Qualia.
The Qualia of water is so deep as the bottomeless.
It was also so interesting diverse walk.
She finally guided the whole last performance at the musium.
Lee could just watching the process that a new midwife was born. I was just surprising at the so fast growing of her.
Next year, Robert and Pamela are preparing the USA and Mexico Resonant Butoh tour. Then Lee will not able to come Hungary, but instead of me, Dar will hold the Wheelchair Butoh workshop as a midwife.
It is pleasure what beautiful resonance will emergence.

Ramesh, forever!

A week after I heard the death of Romez, I danced Romez at the Forest Park in Rotterdam. A lot of memories overflowed over 20 years spent with Romez. Among them, in the desert of Rajasthan, the bodily sensation of Romes at the moment when sudden cerebral hemorrhage occurred came to my body.
How many times have I danced the dead?
Ally, Yamazaki, Tsuji, Hashimoto, the dead of the Pacific War, the deceased of Auschwitz, a strange death on the streets of Delhi, the dead of Fukushima 3.11 ....
Through dancing the dead and I will be one.
The darkness of my body is full of the dead. It's as if they are playgrounds.
Little by little, it gradually approaches the country of the dead.

Listen, Move and Listen

The Eurasia Resonant Butoh Tour 2017 has begun at Rotterdam, Netherlands.
We started it from Listening.
Listning to the subtle invisible Qualia in the darkness of body.
Listen, and if you catch subtle tendency at a part of body, move with following the tendency, and listen to subtle Life Resonance Qualia again.
During dancing, keep listening constantly.

When we concentare on the listening, it is so beautiful.
Why the listening is connect with the beauty.
It is a mystery, but probably the figure of listening to the deep Life Resonance Qualia is
able to lead the audience to the listening itself.
We don't know what are we listening, We cannot explain it by word what are we listening.
The Life Resonance Qualia are invisible and so subtle.
The way you listen to something you can not see is perhaps human beings take off human clothes and listen carefully to their lives. It is listening to the mystery of life and the awe.
Dancer's listening is able to involve others into the listening to the Life Resonance. It is beautiful.
