'Grounding' Udit and cobody

Udit intedrated his subbody-cobody into this piece.
He guided the others to his world by own conditioning.
This is the neccesary process for the festival and the India Rgizoming tour. Becuase, this winter each student willfuige a workshop with public to share one's most important qualia with others. Each subbody-cobody will grow up throug the many experience of Himalaya, Delhi, Varanasi,Kalkutta and so on, with changing members of the cobody.
Slowly the subbody-cobody will grow up from fetus to baby, child and mature. It need pretty long process to perform a piece many times in different conditions.

'Ancient Mother' Raissa

Raissa danced a subbody piece which she met in the Kharotta mountain. In the process of creation, an archtype of 'Great Mother' seemed to visit her body. It might be an unavoidable process for woman to become mature, thoug it has unknown bottomless depth which before an old student Odile atempted. She had to face unknown deep darkness of 'Feminine'. It also connected to the mystery of 'What is the sexuality?' So, it is unavoidable issue not only for female, but also for male.

'The Kiss of The Spider' Emanuel and cobody

A new student Emanuel created a dream body oiece, and the other students co-created his dream world, immidiately. All students of this semester could take off 'Human' and grew up to the Rhizome so flexibly. To share this ultra flexiblity, we can co-create each one's invisible world which Life is resonating mystriously in the Abyss of Life.
In the last semester I could not guide all students to this condition. A few student encounter the hard edge to take off the "human Illusion, including ego and self". We could not find the solution. But I learned from this falure as a midwife. Maybe my guide of conditioning to be cobody is not enough. Then I change the class to share any problem which a student meets with together, and share the process to overcome it as one's self problem.

'Dead Dad's Dolls' Aga, Raissa and Pamela

Pamela and new students Aga (Poland) and Raisa (Brazil) co-created a trio piece. Dance is instant communication, it comes out throufh momentary Life Resonance.
They shared a Qualia of the dead of Dad.
Before and after of the death of someone in the family, what happens in our daily body/mind and subbody-cobody.
If we have lost Dad or Mama in our childhood, also 'the Child with them' have to change. It had to be hidden in the darkness of body and we forget it. We need to seek the Lost Child in the darkness of body. When we will be able to shift it to a creation, we could be released from the invisible bind. There are many different reasons and processes which a subbody-cobody was born and lost or forbidden in the darkness of body.
This is the reason why we have to continue to dance the whole of darkness of body till we will success to integrate all of those hidden or forbidden subbody-cobodies.

'The Invisible in the City' Maki, Pamela, Gaurang, Aga, Raissa, Udit and Piyu

Last weekend, students co-created a long piece shared with the qualia of invasion by the Electronic-magnatic wave in the modern city life that Maki met in September as own qualia instead of Bug's qualia in the 'Bugs walk'.
In therealm of Life, there is no distinction between subbody and cobody, between individual and group. We co-create a world that one of us want to dance in it eargaly, and deepen own subbody-cobody.
It is invisible, but all Life must feel fear of evil effection from the modern life behind the convinience of it.

Everyone feels the subtle fear which is symbolized by the invisible electromagnetic waves behind the convinience of modern life, is invading Life. The dance lasted an hour and a half in total.
Especially, in the second part that connected solo-duo-solo-duo, very realistic subbody dance came out one after another.
Someone danced what oneself is controlled by the computer, someone danced unknown fear in the city, someone danced the invasion by the TV game. Maybe, it was one of the necessary dance to survive for each.
And, in that chaotic cobody world, each individual subbody is possible to deepen subbody-cobody dance for oneself.
Hijikata Tatsumi explored the invisible resonance between Life and the 'bihind world' in "Sick dancing Princess" in one volume, in diverse multi-dimansional resonance pattern in his childhood background as the Tohoku Japan. And now, the young butoh dancers are deepening it by replacing it in the 21st Century.
So, now and here, we are modernizing the Life Resonance with the invisible 'behind world' qualia.
It's so, this is what's a butoh world of "Sick Dancing Princess" in the 21st century.
Many years it took, finally we are able to reach the wellhead of the necessity of the Butoh of Life.

'Blooming in the Nature' Gabriala, Inga, Maki, Pamale, and cobody

We visited the Chatle Rock Garden in Dharamsala and each student found a land scape to open subbody-cobody.
This years weather is so unusual, the monsoon continued from June to October, then we had to practice only in the school.
The Monsoon is broken year by year remarkablly. Life have to resonate with the world change.
The inevitable tremendous disaster must hit the Life and agriculture in Asia in the near future that has been dependent on the monsoon rain for tousands years. Now, Life is trembling in the predictive of the big unexpectable Catastrophe.
This is the first day to go out of the school in this semester.
Subbody-cobodies met a novel land scape and bloomed it in each place.
Inner micro cosomos and outer macro cosmos are always resonating.
Qualia of inner constellation resonated with the qualia of outer world change, and create novel qualia slowly.
See the pics of 'Eiko and Koma’,Theay are one of second generation of Butoh who spreaded to the world in 1970'.
'Eiko and Koma' investigated in a method to place their body in the natute or town, and folow the body transformation with listening to the body.
Comparing to them, our six weeks subbody-cobody after birth is just baby. They will be trained through the practice between hall and nature gradually, and through the Himalaya Butoh Festival, Delhi festival, and India Rhizoming tour, it will grow up what is able to dance at any place.
How will it work, it is fun of this year.

And learned the Jo-Ha-Kyu, Sen-Shin-Hitsu, Zu-Ji-Cho and so on of the basic creation method through 'Bugs walk' by Hijikata.
In October we are studying the technique how to open various dancing places of the body, and how to change it.
Slowly each part of body remembered various Life Resonance, and becoming multi-dimensional resonance body through subbody=cobody experiences.
We continue to deepen it thorugh the whole October. Wait for a while how their body change from not only an individual human body to multi-dimensional resonance body of Life.

'Papaya' Pamela

Pamela is now the second semester, she noticed of her habit that her elbows is bending always and it may be too self gurad posture.
One day she tried not to use her elbows that keep straight position always. Then suddenly the other part of her body opened novel movement that have not opened ever. So many new dancing places of her body; Wirsts, shoulders, legs, tongue, and so on.
This is the most remakable effest of the "Reducing body techinue" of subbody method than ever. She could invent unique butoh body miraculously.
This kind of miracle of creation happens sometimes during one year course, but not able in the short term students.
This is the reason why the one year course ids minimum term of the subbody school. Now by economical reason, many students are difficult to join in the one year course, and we accept short ternm students, but please try to be join in the school as long as possible, if you want to be unique professional butoh dancer who is only one in the world. It needs time.
