November Intensive course
Nov 12 -Nov 30, 2018
The following week we will be exploring hidden joints & hidden muscles in the short term intensives.
How to reconnect with the memory of these parts?
How to put this awareness of fine details of body-mind a
t the core of researching/creation process?
I will be sharing the breath-body method tomorrow. It is a tool for rooting yourself in your necessity while you are doing research or performing; a tool to translate abstract mental concepts into concrete physical concepts so performers/researchers don't get lost or frustrated with their processes.

Butoh Performance With Fresh Stinging Nettles
This performance is an homage to the stinging nettle. Stinging nettles have been a fascination of mine for over a year, but it has only been a month now since I really started adopting it as a plant teacher. I have not only been stinging myself (increasing the amount gradually), but have also been making tea from the leaves. My fascination with this plant is multi-faceted and multi-themed. To keep it short, the nettle is a power medicine as well as a rich nutrient. It has been used as a muscle/joint medicine as well as a banishing plant in shamanism (via stinging the subject). Like bee shamanism, I feel it can also serve as a potent form of acupuncture. This performance took place at the Subbody Butoh School in Dharamsala, India. The nettles were harvested 2 hours prior to the performance.

|Transittion Rhizome "Descending to Bone Kid"|
| September 30, 2018
One progress has been brought to Nomad Rhizome.
Adam guided to overlap the end of one dance with the beginning of the next dance.
By this, from the beginning to the end is organically connected.
We could transform into one Rhizome.
Yes, at last, we turned into a creature.

Nomad Rhizome by five Trios
In the rock garden on Thursday, We danced Nomad Rhizome by three Quintett groups of five people.
On Friday we did Nomad Rhizome by the five Trio groups in the school space.
It was totally unpredictable Jo-Ha-Kyu development, what kind of world will be opened next, and entertained until the end.
In a normal theater which one person choreographs and directs, this never happens.
Finally, the Resonant Rhizome co-creation method, which the only one choreographer is eliminated is approaching the day when it overcomes the old style Tree system.
It's full of fun in the future.

New co-creation method has begun
We completely revolt the co-creation method from Tree way to Rhizome way this year.
We changed from the previous way of Tree that a person composes a whole piece.
Now everybody becomes Rhizome that initiates each different part by own Qualia and integrates it together into a piece through the Life Resonance.
It becomes a Chimera and deepens the degree of the numinous and clouding.
It is an exciting experiment to approach to the Butoh of Life.
