Ten weeks Integration of subbody=cobody

Each dancer integrated subbody=cobody for 10 weeks from March.
We can introduce the growth and deepening.
Each dancer has been digging the darkness of the body for a couple of months and a half, and their bodies have changed little by little.
With the Cloud of Qualia entangled in each Life, by reverse twisting, they have grown into original butoh body.
Alex and Anna Lena danced each other's "Behind world" and the visible world.
They tried to visualize the non-dual and multidimensional invisible Life Resonance.
The Himalayan Butoh Festival is coming in the next two weeks.
My work as a midwife of subbody = cobobody is over.
Afterwards by mutual midwiving which opens each creativity fully, it will further refine from now.

Behind and front of Mirror

This "Bear alive" by Dara and Silas, experiments to dance the behind and front of the mirror with skillful usage of curtains.
It focused the interaction of the both world; the behind world and the daily consensus reality.
Yes, Life is always resonating with invisible Qualia and physical Qualia.
We are going to dance the subtle Life Resonance, it is non-dual and multi-dimensioanal resonance.
In recent years, we continue an experiment dancing behind people and things, dancing between, under, over , among, and so on.
I've been experimenting with various ways to dance in the behind world, but thanks to this curtain technique further interactions are accelerated.
We dance invisible subtle Life Resonance.
How can we make it visible or perceivable?
Experiments will enter into the new horizon from now.

Suballet / Aia and Lidiane
30 April, 2017

This is the <Ha> of Jo-Ha-Kyu

This piece Suballet has typical Jo-ha-Kyu.
Especially, very clear <Ha>.
<Ha> is to break <Jo> and unfold novel dimension.
Aia and Ridianne showed unison duet ballet as <Jo>, and broke it remarkablly.
Everyone, learn from this what is <Ha>!
Does your piece have enough <Ha>?
Jo-ha-Kyu is resonance method to share your important Qualia with the world. Without <Ha>, you would lose the deep resonance.

Until April, performances of co-researchers has not enough <Ha>. Most of people bound by the first idea and forget Transparency that keeps the exact balance of 50% inside, 50% outside.
Someone was bound by inner listening and forgot to break it.
Someone is bound by outer intention to show fun or idea to audience, and forgot Transparency.

Be Transparent!
Not bound by anything.
Break your self, it is <Ha>.
Surprise yourself, it is <Ha>.

Without surprising yourself, how is it possible to resonate with others deeply?
Hijikata wrote it as the
<Peacock>, in "Quiet House".
Stop thinking!
And remember the moment that your Life was moved by something deeply!
Life know well about the <Peakock> that your Life was impressed deeply in your life.
Stop thinking and listen to the Life.
