Pamela and cobody co-created a strange world.
Everybody transformed various being in the darkness of body.
This is the "Gloomy Air" a kind of 'behind world' which Hijikata
pursued in his "Sick Dancing Princess".
The variations of it is infinite. Life is shivering with the invisible
behind world, with countless resonance patterns.
Slowly we are entering into a novel realm.
Chong ( China ) has to return home before the Butoh festival in relation
He integrated subbody=cobody of this three
months, last weekend.
He shared his own subbody=cobody world with original conditioning, and
the other students could share his invisible behind world.
It seems to have become the experience interesting than expected.
Elena (Russia) inprovised in the garden about two weeks spending in Subbody
After dancing on the grass, she entered into audience place and went away
with saying goodbye to this time-space.
It's a beautiful 'Jo-Ha-Kyu' of using space.
She has learned various butoh method, but here awakened rich source of
subbody-cobody, will come back in September, she said.
Keep deepening, Elena.
In one days of last Friday of April course,
so many new subbody=cobodies were born.
What we cannot upload all of them, is pity.
'Love for you' Ankur and Gio
'Dance of Life' Jaime and Gio
'Toward the within' Pamela and Laurence
'Tied to Birth' Aless and Robert
'Two side of Moon' Olga and Elena
'Kiama Ennata (Dark Godess)' Shamaayal
'Run' Aymon, Ankur, Jaime and Robert
It is developping more and more with increasing the depth on yesterday,
the first Friday of May course.
Now we are going to investigate in 'Sick Dancing Princess' of Hijikata,
it is also deepest unexplored world of butoh. Everybody must encounter
many edges and overcome them anyway to meet the necessity of dancing in
own Abyss of Life.
What will happen on the Festival of June?
On Friday, five duets, three solos, and one cobody piece, total nine subbody
and cobody were born.
Here, at first we introduce two duets with Gio, this day was last day of
Gio who is leaving to Calgary, Canada for co-creation with Gessuri and
Qualias(qualities of feeling) primarily
discovered/explored were loneliness of being in a
completely new unknown space/dimension; and glimpses of a deep darkened
cave, where our weakened defeated self resides. Ankur Pandey
Jaime and Ankur found like a dark cave in a ruin house Kangrafort. Big
bats lived there.
Both of them are meeting each own heavy edge.
There Life must feel here is the optimum space to listen to the qualia
They moved with silent speed. We were also moved deeply. Because not only
them, now all students are facing each own edge, and trying to overcome
This year, earler than other years, the season of creation in the Abyss
including hell and heaven has begun.
First of all, thanks to all subbodies deeply from my bottom of heart, life.
I could feel how much you opened resonance ability, the full of honesty
from your life, abyss.
This cobbody experimnet was very short but very intense for me.
I was dreaming the real beautiful resonance life to life without any judge,
Actually this is a big experiment for me as practicing to listen to air,
wind, flower, life, me and you.
The moments in the cobody was the most beautiful encountering in my butoh
I can't describe my feeling with words. Just I want to share this video.
The moments, constantly life and body cross creating new space, relationship,
And actually I feel very sorry at the same time.
I tried to listen to the space transparently all the time but the last
moment, after chaos I've lost the transparency. We were supposed to find
an ending together in full of resonance.
But my ego made ending in different speed from another subbodies. I was
following my qualia after Chaos. So I felt very sorry about that somehow
I disturbed your own deep world was continued. Because I know, all subbodies
were one of the deepest moment.
I will learn more how to listen. This experience would be precious message
for my dance of Life.
Warm hugs and resonance to all the subbodies, cobody.
Gio integrated these years investigation in the darkness of body before
leaving to Canada for collaboration with Gessuri and Javier.
She shared her best or deepest Mystery, Secret and Flower with cobody.
The piece has four parts.
Dancers became a stone which is the smallest bottom body, and became rolling
To becoming quiet stones is 'Jo' ; the beginning part to invite every dancer
and audience into another time-space from daily human world.
2. Seeds to Flowers
When they met and became a big stone, slowly each part of body started
subtle resonance with the world, and transformed various Flowers.
In butoh world, 'Flower' means not only a beautiful normal flower. Any
ugly shapes and movement could be novel 'Flower' when it finds the best
timing, even inner monster.
Everybody researched in the darkness of body and bloomed own monster or
3. Walking on the life
She introduced a poem. It was a Tibetan poem about the mystery about why
we fall into the same problem many times. She also danced it three years
ago. It is so hard to solve the problem, because it is connected with other
unknown problems in the complicated multi resonance in the darkness of
body. The infinite depth is one of her Abyss. She has continued to enter
the Mystery for many years and researched the Secret.
And now she found a certain way how to share her Abyss with others.
So, we can share own deepest issue by becoming cobody.
She guided others through an original way of conditioning, in the morning.
Every subbody could face the own problem which each one encounters many
times, and danced it.
The last part is 'Chaos'.
"You need chaos in your soul to give birth to a dancing star."
Already long term students have met so strange chaos in the darkness of
body. It is quit discombobulation without any clear direction and no orientation.
We take off all conditions of human; the identity, sexuality, nationality,
and sink into the Abyss as non-dual Life. We need to accept it to open
the infinite creativity, originality and resonativity of Life.
Every dancer developped dancing with jumping wildly among diverse dimensions.
Random encounters, strange relationships came out one after another.
This is the three years integration by Gio.
It could open new perspective of subbody=cobody which is able to share
own best and deepest qualia in Abyss. It is the richest world of the Quest
for everybody. I was eager to realize it for many years. We will share
the harvest soon.
Thank you. Gio!
The Tibettan poem is the following;
I walk down the street
There is the deep hole in the side walk
I fall in.
I am lost..I'm hopeless.
It isn’t my fault
It take forever to find a way.
I walk down the same street.
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I pretend I don’t see it.
I fall in again.
I can’t believe I'm in the same place.
But it isn’t my fault.
It still take long time to get out.
I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.
I see it is there.
I still fall in…it’s a habit.
My eyes are open.
I know where I am.
It is my fault.
I get out immediately.
I walk down the same street
There is a deep hole in the sidewalk
I walk around it.
I walk down another street..
