'No Title 1' Pamela and cobody

Pamela found unique creature that is moving by only head rolling oe waving, cobody became this creature covered body by black cloths.
They danced the bugs walk only at face, and she gave them a world change qualia by putting dead leaves into their mouths.
And after then, she transformed in so diverse ways to enter unknown another dimensions. Maybe her subbody entered into non-dual and multi-dimensional realm. She herself doesn't know what is happening, just she followed the body. Sometimes like this miracle moment visits us during subbody dancing. So many different movements and tasty transformations came out from her body. When like this fenomena happens, it is the chance to travel deeper realm of the darkness of body. Remember all Life Resonance, body movement and the qualia, open the transparent "Riken eye (Distant eye) and watch it sensitively.
Later you can integrate them into your own piece with carrying density and jumping wild flexiblly.
It is the Art of Shisha which Hijikata wrote in the "Quiet House".

2. Important

“Shisha transform their shapes quietly yet infinitely. It is not rare that they borrow the shapes of things on the earth with unexpected nonchalance.”


It takes time to be the condition of the Shisha that is able to transform quietly and infinitely. Pamela is in the second semester, now she is able to dance the whole self. We cannot name it at first, then it is reasonable to title it as "No title 1" so that is not to bind subbody by a thinking theme or narrow meaning in this moment. Becase it is the infinite treasure box of the creation.

'It's just Invisible' Maki and cobody

In the developement stage of Bugs walk, unique qualia that Maki found instead of 'Bug' in the Bags walk was electromagnetic waves that can not be seen flying the space, and invading human body.
Maki has worked in a movie maker as an office worker aside to continue the small theater activities in Japan.
During the time, har Life might feel the potantial fear against it.
The electromagnetic waves are invisible, but they effect our Life certainly.
For Life in the 21st century, she caught a sharp tremor to the 'behind invisible world' exactly.
When the big earthquake of 3.11, she was practicing in a theater, and lighting equipments fell down violently from the overhead.
She has chnaged to the street performances to escape from the danger.
After attacked by various crisis when she was wondering for the future,
she knew about the Subbody School and came to Himalaya.
Here we are dancing a variety of Life resonance of diverse students who have gathered from all over the world.
The crisis of the Amazon forest in South America, and crisis of radioactivity and electromagnetic waves in the advanced society, it is one for Life

In the developement of Jo-ha-kyu, the electromagnetic wave attacked al ldancers in different ways, and surprising and unexpected transformations occured among the dancers.
Especially, two young India dancers began crazy exquisitely. Now India is one of the developed IT country also.
Since it was so subtle and fine sounds trembling, although it is not reflected in the photograph.
It was the moment everyone became one.
To dance the resonance of Life and invisible 'behind world beyond the distinction between self and others, it's a road that approaches the universal Butoh of Life.

'Amazon - Our Mother Earth' Gabriela and cobody

September 4 weeks has finished. Students integrated all subbody=cobody that met during for one month.
The cobody-subbody theater was so deep and full of resonance that have not seen during the school history.
Gabriela started dancing from the 'Moving forest cobody' that she has resonated deepest during the practice.
In the forth week we studied 'Bugs walk' by hijikata, and replaced the bug's qualia by own qualia, and created own butoh.
For Gabriala, when she became the Amazon forest, the bug was 'human itself' that continue to cut down the forest. But, a new life sprout again.
What is this becoming in the future?
Gabriela seemes to enocunter the inner necessity to dance the fate of the nature and human on the planet.
We will begin studying the "Quiet House" and "Sick Dancing Princess" by Hijikata in October.
This subbody=cobody will meet other individual qualia in the darkness of the body and entangled by them. It must grow to multidimensional resonance butoh of Life.
Anyway all students get the most important things that is inner reason to dance and resonance each other as one Life. It is a big harvest of the September.

'Behind the Window' Gabriela and cobody

Gabriela from Argentina inteegrated ger subbody at the wall side of the hall.
We tried to resonate with it as cobody in various ways, and she chose the 'behind world' that cobodies resonance pattern that the cobody are coming crowded bleeding from outside the window. What's going on behind the scenes, it is not visible to her, she had to open senstive resonativity of Life, her skin became ears, her hidden skin became eyes and resonated with them.
Through this it is able to be visualized that is invisible subtle Resonance of Life.
Inner micro cosmos of Life is resonant with the outer macro cosmos always.
We learn this from "Sick Dancing Princess" of Tatsumi Hijikata. We will pursue this technique and realize the unexplored Butoh of Life through the year.

'Primordial man and woman' Udit and Maki

Udit who is from Delhi, danced a duet with Maki from Japan.
He sunk to the bottom hole of the lunch table in the garden, and appeared as a primordial man living in caves of the Stone Age, and began to dance in primitive movement.
He asked Maki to transform gradually from modern lady to resonante as subbody=cobody.
They developed various resonance pattern, sometimes she hided in the cave and came out again, and so on.
During to see the Jo-Ha-Kyu developement of their resonance, we felt as if it were a mythological world, like Izanagi and Izanami, or Amaterasu and Susanoo in primitive mythology in Japan that is far older than the world of Adam and Ive.
Maybe, some Qualia of Archetypes or Prototype were unfolded in the darkness of audience by the resonance.
Regardless of whether dancers are intended or not intended to dance it, the hidden Archetypes and Prototypes are activated through the resonance spontaneously, if we could dance from the depth of the darkness of body.
It is the Butoh of Life to dance the whole Life Resonance transparently.
