I CAN DANCE, I CAN DANCE AGAIN !

Syv is having a bomb in the body for three years.
The more that she continues to dance to overcome the pain,
there is nothing that will encourage us.
Deepest Resonance, SyV!

When: This Sunday June 23 at 4.30pm
Where: Displacements Community Arts Project
13 Wilkie Terrace, Singapore


Dear Lee,
I CAN DANCE, I CAN DANCE AGAIN !

what a joy. even with a stiff body and a limited
movement range, there is much to share, to
discover, to express, many quolias to unfold.
I am so happy, Lee. I am ready to dance again.

Dance transcends pain and diseases, it does
not erase it, it takes it within and transforms it
into a creation. I am my pain dancing. I am my
disease dancing, I am the dancer watching
them. And I am much more, dancing around
them, against them sometimes. They are me,
and at the same time they are the background
where i can dance and express something else,
they are the air i can lean on, they are my
back in prison with them while my fingers are
flying high.
my dance includes pain and diseases and goes
beyond, my dance is them and is much more.
when the ego is not involved anymore and i
don't ride or use the emotional side where it
would be too easy to fall and stay, then they
become the depth and richness of my creation.
then they become the inspiration, the impulse
and soil where much more will birth.

Lee, it is one thing to know it intellectually, in
the mind. it is another to experience it. Now I
know. Now I am ready for it. Now I have the
energy, the will and the wish to dance again.
My dance is still very much a child, an
immature little one. it means i have much to
learn and to explore, which is exciting.

today my body feels more like a shipwreck
than a dancer's one, but it does not matter, it i
worth it. I am on the good tracks.

thank you lee, for all your teachings in various
forms, even if i am not at the school anymore.
you keep teaching me. and thank you for all
the students and other dancers whom you
share their performances,they give me
strength.
The worldwide resonance is only beginning.

Much love to you, Lee
Syv

"Sebastien."
performance by Aklopoditi Dancetheater
in Syros

Where: Neos Kosmos Theatre, Syros, Greece
When: 2, 3 & 4 July 21:30


The invisible character of T. Williams' Suddenly, Last Summer is the very same person that crosses the line from absence to presence in Sebastian. The performance focuses on “what we do not see, what has already come about and has now finished, what has never turned into an image”. It follows the route of an external and at the same time internal representation.

The roles are reversed and nature regulates its scales in a cruel but fair way; he who has eaten will now be eaten.

Concept: Angeliki Sigourou
Choreography: Angeliki Sigourou and Akropoditi Dancetheatre
Lighting: Tassos Palaioroutas
Original music: Yannis Roussos
Vocal improvisation: Savina Yannatou
Costumes: Angeliki Sougioultzi, Athanassopoulos
Set construction: Vassilis Vikelis, Stavros Mangonis
Booklet and poster design: Akropoditi Design Team

Performers:
Philipos Evangelou, Iliana Kalapotharakou, Dimitris Karalice,
Pigi Lobotesi, Nabil El Barage, Anna Ouzounidou,
Eleni Pagkalia, Nadia Palaiologou, Constantin Charalampopoulos.

4. Tao Shiatsu Treatment for your mind and Body

Shiatsu is a healing art form originated in Japan. Shiatsu restores one’s self-healing ability by balancing one’s vital energy (Ki). Through applying pressure to various parts of the body, the practitioner treats one’s meridian (pathways for Ki).

Tao Shiatsu is a revolutionary method of Oriental medical treatment and therapy developed by Japanese Master Ryokyu Endo. With significant developments beyond previous shiatsu and massage methods, Tao Shiatsu remains rooted to the holistic spirit of Eastern Medicine. Tao Shiatsu treatments alleviate stress, boost energy and help to manage existing health issues.

Tao Shiatsu is helpful for:
Back, neck, shoulder and joint problem
Stress and tension disorders
Headaches and migraines
Digestive problems
Depression and emotional problems
Chronic fatigue
Menstrual irregularities
Insomnia, repetitive stress injuries, and overuse syndromes
Sports injuries
Arthritis
Fibromyalgia
Sciatica
And More....

For more information about Tao Shiatsu, please visit Tao Shiatsu North America site: http://taosangha-na.com/tao-shiatsu

*Shiatsu is practiced lying on the floor with the clothes on. Please wear loose comfortable clothes.

Dear Lee,
i am happy, slowly coming back to dance. i will give a short performance this sunday. Thinking of you and of all the amazing resonances that are now happening at the Subbody Festival. Thank you and the students for sharing this with us all.
take care of yourself,
syv

I am slowly coming back to dance.

The delight of my body
In silent speed
Moving slowly slowly
Silent speed
The delight of moving
Of dancing

Feeling my bones
Dancing
Feeling my fluids my organs my muscles my joints
Dancing

A taste of ecstasy

I become Energy
Glowing from the tips of my fingers
Down to my feet and to the ground,
Back to earth

There is no more inside nor outside
There is no more body no more shape
I am energy

I become lights
I become colors
I become transparent
Reflecting all that is
I am Energy
I see the space between my cells
And the body "idea" vaporizes

I am everything
I am nothing

There is only love
Pure love


I am complete

I am dancing

PERFORMANCE
Sosiego

When: Sat 15 June, 2013
Where: See above

Hello Lee !
How are you doing ?
Lots of dances happening around the world.
Each day rhizoming is getting more and more
meaningful. Spreading from beyond.
Impossible to stop. Alive.
There has been a lot happening in Madrid, but
between practice, performing and daily
business of living in a capital I had few time to
write...
I've been with your friend Hisako in May, and
with Zambrano in April... both curious to visit
subbody one day.
From flying low to slow motion, opening a wide
range of physical possibilities. And on every
point of that line that goes from apparent
stillness for hours to postmodern samurai style
moves, every point of that line crosses a
potential universe. So many worlds constantly
welcoming our attention and offering renewed
creativity. Somehow everything gets so simple
when we're inmersed in infinite complexity.

On saturday I'll perform my last creation, a
duo, called Sosiego, meaning more or less
Serenity. The info is attached.
I'll also give last workshop on saturday and
sunday.
Sosiego is an attempt to approach the crisis
that inhabit our body with a peaceful mind as
free as possible from human judgement. My
first piece without naked body, lots of stuff on
the scene, light changes, music, lots of images
for people to dream their own creation.
Something like a clear unexplicable dream.

Dancing Life
- a butoh dance voice week in Dordogne

When: August 20 at 5:00pm until August 26 at 10:00am

Where: Createrre, Dordogne, France


In a mysterious landscape of forest, fields, fresh water and many treasures to discover, a week to deepen our contact with nature, with all of life. Daily classes and sessions of butoh dance, exploring the hidden voices in our bodies, a hint of contact improvisation and loads of bodywork to calm down and soften our magical instrument.

Butoh is a japanese dance which invites everything into the dance. Not just human, not just our personal history, not just the healthy and happy. We will dance the weakened body, our ancestors, ants, clouds, mountains growing and collapsing.................

Though Kristien will be sharing her butoh dance, the week will be a co-creation as well, with a lot of space for whatever comes up and whatever we want to dance/move/sing together...

Costs (this is food + accomodation, teaching is on donation):
Camping in your own tent: 240
Renting a simple tent: 275
Dormitory with 6 people: 275
Sharing a double: 300
Renting a De Waard tent: 300

Life
 
 He who experiences the Unity of life sees his own self in all beings, and all being in his own self, and looks on everything with an impartial eye.

~ Buddha
Me=We=One

 Secrets and mysteries of subbody = cobody


Today the first day of the Himalaya Butoh festival, I
came across an interesting figure just;
Me = We = One
This is the same as the secret of subbody= cobody= oneness which we are exploring by our tears, sweat and blood in the Himalayas.
This mystery is worth to solve, even it takes for whole life.
Human is bound and obsessed with self and ego,
but, Life is one.
It is the deepest mystery and secret which is unsolved yet.

I found this figure on facebook of large senior of Butoh; Mr. Koichi Tamano.
Butoh dancers are comrades to explore the unknown order of not still, before the differentiation of self and others which Tatsumi Hijikata pursued eagerly.
Thank you very much Mr. Tamano.

Second message from Ozerk

The Prime Minister's Office, the absurdity of Taksim Square and the Park by the public since the indomitable almost 4 days have passed. Finally after the street resistance lasted at the end of the conflict, when we thought the end of taksim square. Yanıldığımız appeared in a short time.
Police gümüşsuyundan, akaretlerden and interkontinantel beşiktaşa the road to continued excessive interventions to employees below the hotel, returned to the battlefield. This is different than a touristic areas from reaching people who used pepper gas were discussing the gas constant.
Three nights ago an injured interkontinentalin below the boycotts. Divan Hotel there, the health unit. Our friend could not distinguish his leg, he could not walk to the left on the right leg. Almost no food for three days to properly yutkunamadığı yememişti. Couldn't breathe. You can walk on his own again as a result of their needles, the doctors eat, breath and opened.
Two nights ago the area immediately below the succession of gümüşsuyunda, ITU gas bombs thrown at the face, eye guards suffered blindness, non-friends in the short term the impact of this gas has continued for a long time.
Finally a compromise was reached yesterday evening during the night, whereas the conflict will not affect the whole Division thrown gas bombs again.

This is a kind of ending conflict in the region, what is the reason for the use of chemical weapons, what you say a single vague answer: ' protect ' the Prime Minister's working Office.

Then, let us ask: İstanbul's busiest day, buses, minibuses and pedestrian traffic in the region, the Prime Minister's Office in working with what you have? You will feel close to what he saltanata himself in an Irish fuzzy chemical weapons do we kobaylığını? A single man's arrogance is one of the busiest places of istanbul because of deadlock and return to the battlefield over nothing?

To stop this conflict, the Prime Minister's Office in a remote location in a hurry concept. (Translated by Bing)

Message from Ozerk

Friends crawling with plainclothes police in taksim. Constantly trying to provoke people.

Journey to Xibalba


Dear Lee

I hope this message finds you well and resonating with the whole world!
I have some exciting news.
I have finally received my grant to produce my own Butoh dance show!!!!!!!
Last year I wrote many grants and proposals to create my Mayan Butoh show for the end of the Mayan Calendar in 2012 but I did not get any funding, but I still created 3 dance works. I re submitted my proposal this year with a DVD of my creations and feed back from my Butoh workshop which I believe is what helped me this time....before I only told them what I wanted to do, but this time I showed them. so thats why I believe I was successful!
I am aiming to produce the show in the spring of 2014. So I have lots of time to prepare the best Butoh performance Canada has ever seen!!!!
I have already contacted Gio and she is coming to Canada to dance with me!!!! :)

I have attached my proposal so you can see what this show will be!

Thank you for the inspiration and guidance you gave me to achieve my dreams!

Infinite love

Chico



Winds, wings & times


Hi Lee,

here is Chico from Brazil writing. I done know why I´am writing but maybe just for the same reason that some people write. To keep in touch and show how time and space can keep some philosophies into our minds and bodies.

And just know I saw a video of yourself teaching in Subbody Circle Room.
Just hearing your voice is like coming back to that period and also make some moviments and 'creatures' rise up again all over my body.

I´m very sad, not in that dual common-sense, but sad because life here in Sao Paulo can be hard sometimes. I was thinking and it can be with the language. Sometimes we just want to be foreigns in our on enviroment and language is a was, simple and shor way to bring all our notions of self.

It has passed more than 1 year that I experienced your place, all that hymalayan mornings, the ring of that bell, particular birds and horns. I cryed once like a newbornbaby because I knew - somehow - that that was what I was, what my subbody still is.

I just got a schollarship in Indonesia, Java Island. I´ll live there for a year to study their dance and theather. I have to drink of many cultures so my body can show me more possibilites. My body must learn, my hands and fingers are looking for their own dance.

These days we had a big butoh festival here in a big theater. It was so powerfull, all the lights and the silences. A japonese girl was here.

That´s all by now,
Thank you for everything and every breath.
That you also for yourwebsite and this virtual resonance seeds!

"kindling" in Himalaya

Dear Lee
Thank you very much for inviting us for Butoh Festival. Everyone is so happy.
So we would like to perform on 8th of June ( Saturday).
I was thinking that maybe we could do free gaga class on 8th from10.00 till 11.00 and then perform around 17.00.

About Gaga:
Gaga is a form if improvisation developed by Israeli choreographer Ohad Narain. It is very nice way of working with the body. The class is only one hour and it is led by a teacher to the music. The organiser of our project is very good gaga teacher and she can
lead the class.

Saturday 8th of June: 10:00 - 11.00 free open GAGA class
17:00 - 18.00 - performance

Sunday 9th of June
10:00 - 11:00 free open gaga class

Saga Kobayashi



Hijikata Tatsumi and Francis Bacon

Saga Kobayashi said the impression of Francis Bacon exhibition at Tokyo in Facebook.
She said that Hijikata left hundred or more pricise researchs in Bacon's face expression in his scrapbook of clippings Bacon.
Further, also she suggested deep relationship between his butoh score(scrapbook) and his real choreograph concretely.
In deed Bacon is a treasure trove of face transformations between this world and invisible another dimension. He drew the Life Resonance itself.
I was shocked to see Bacon exhbition at the Pompidou Museum of Contemporary Art, 1998 in Paris.
Now we can see countless pictures of Bacon can be seen through internet, and we can start reseach in Bacon at any time anywhere.

昨日フランシスコ・ベーコン展へ行ってきた。
ずっと以前にはベーコンと言うとなにそれ?食べるベーコン?とか哲学者?とか言われたものだけど、認知度は随分高まっているようでたくさんの人が来ていた。きちんと書くと時間が掛かるので、25日までしかやっていないことだし、是非ご覧になることをお勧めします。ベーコンはいくつかあれも見たかったな~~と言うものもありますがやはりすごい。
また、それとは別で、土方さんの舞踏譜は是非見てもらいたいと思います。
私もまだ見たことのないものがあって、その驚くほど几帳面にきっちりと線をひいて執拗に表情とか動きとかを自筆で書き込んでいるのが凄いです。表情だけで100とか120とかの番号が附されています。
見ていて「あっこれはあの動きだわ」とか思ったり、「癩」とか、「べっ甲飴」とか「自転車」だとかいった言葉を見つけるとなんだか嬉しい。やっぱり土方さんは「癩」の踊りのためにベーコンを使ったのだなあと思った。「なだれ飴」はべっ甲飴で、崩れて融けて解体されて固まった膿の踊りなのですよね。
「アウシュビッツ」の書き入れもあった。

Subbody Resonance Butoh

Subbody is the subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, the subconsciousness and body are melting into oneness and opening a multidimensional world. The dancer dances life memories, feelings & experiences folded in the body and explores their interactions with physical elements such as gravity, air, light, sound and mental elements such as dreams, illusions and hallucinations. These elements are always streaming and transforming in strange and complex ways. Through calming down the daily consciousness and letting go of thinking habit, participants will delve into their subbodies and explore the originality, creativity and resonance ability of their lives.



We will:
Condition mind-body to switch from daily mode to listening mode. Become a quiet body.
Listen and follow subtle signals of life; subtle sensations and feelings streaming in life. We call these qualia.
Explore different conditoning methods with breath, sound, movement and resonance -touch method.
Unlock and research hidden qualia, hidden skin, hidden fluid, hidden muscles, hidden joints and hidden body.
Explore the hidden self and resonance ability of life.

Butoh Danza Workshop

When: Saturday, May 18, 2013
Where: I cantieri-circolo arci, viale partigiani 23, Pavia


Noi siamo parte della Terra. Veniamo da essa, cresciamo e moriamo in essa. Siamo parte di un tutto in perpetua trasformazione.
La pratica della danza butoh e uno strumento per riconnetterci con questo flusso, con questa energia vitale che permea tutte le cose.
E’ una pratica per riconoscere la nuda fragilita, la vulnerabilita della vita stessa, di un fiore, di un albero, di una farfalla, di un animale, di un essere umano e riabbracciarla.
La danza butoh non e una tecnica che segue determinati canoni estetici, e piuttosto un modo per esplorare, per avvicinarci al cuore pulsante, e uno stato del corpo e della mente che ci permette di lasciarci danzare.

Il laboratorio e aperto a tutti/e
Domenica 19 maggio
14.30-18.30

A partire da una pratica fisica basata su esercizi di rilassamento e yoga si entrera in un percorso di improvvisazione/creazione volto alla ricerca del movimento spontaneo, del contatto con le emozioni trattenute nel corpo, dell’esplorazione della danza con la creazione sia di momenti di solo che corali. Si lascera emergere quel flusso di movimento spontaneo libero da intenzioni e abitudini che ci condizionano nella vita quotidiana.

- Body resonance. Preparazione fisica per aprire i canali dell’improvvisazione e dell’ascolto profondo dentro/fuori: il respiro/voce, la gravita, l’equilibrio, il movimento, il corpo e l’ambiente circostante (estensione/proiezione/reazione)
- Esercizi di improvvisazione con elementi immaginari, con la poesia, connessioni tra l’immaginario poetico e l’ambiente circostante.
- Danzare le emozioni, i processi di trasformazione(embrione-bambino-adulto, seme-fiore…, nascita ?fioritura-avvizzimento, ecc), le qualita degli elementi acqua, terra, fuoco, aria, altri esseri viventi.

Con l’aiuto di alcuni strumenti come sassi, campanelle, sonagli, voce ecc… musica registrata si creeranno dei paesaggi sonori per sostenere le improvvisazioni.

CHIARA DE BONA

Inizia lavorando con il teatro, la danza e il canto a partire dal 1995 con progetti di spettacolo e periodi di ricerca in Italia, Spagna, Bosnia-Erzegovina, Croazia, Africa, principalmente collaborando con La Baracca, Teatro Testoni - Bologna e Il Teatro po-etico Viaggiante Ey de Net (poi diventato ZERO-TEATRO).
Si laurea in Filosofia all’Universita di Bologna e si specializza in studi di genere all’Universita Ca’ Foscari di Venezia dove partecipa ad un progetto di studio/insegnamento per le pari opportunita.
Da vita a diversi progetti di integrazione del teatro-danza nella natura o in luoghi artificiali, anche con persone portatrici di handicap (Impronte, un sogno in valigia, giardini incantati).
Mette in scena due monologhi Vecchie bambole(teatro-danza)e A/MEDEA(monologo-concerto)
Segue negli anni diversi maestri in particolar modo nel campo della danza come Giovanni Di Cicco, Kirstie Simson, Julie Stanzak, Koffi Koko, Eva Karzag, fino ad incontrare nel 2007 il maestro Atsushi Takenouchi e la musicista Hiroko Komiya(www.jinen-butoh.com) con i quali inizia un percorso di ricerca nel campo della danza butoh che la porta nel 2009 ad un anno di studio e creazione alla Subbody Butoh school Himalaya in India dove oltre ad apprendere il subbody resonance method del maestro Rhizome Lee(www.subbody.net), approfondisce la pratica dello yoga e della meditazione.
Da quest’anno di creazione nasce il solo Ancestral.
Nel 2011 rientrata in Italia diventa mamma e si dedica alla costruzione(in corso) di una casa/studio per ospitare laboratori e condividere periodi di ricerca sulla danza butoh, lo yoga, la meditazione e la natura nell’oltrepo pavese.

Abandoned Eternity/ Pit

When: 11 May 8pm
Where: Industrial Museum, Syros

dear lee,
days pass quickly under the greek sun…
between leisure time, enjoying syros lifestyle
of eating and drinking and going swimming i
try to find a balance of calming down and enter
the subbody state…
the members of the school are all kind of busy
so finally i will show a soloperformance.
next saturday 11 i will perfrom at the industrial
museum in collaboration with a belgium
saxophon player… below you find a brief
description what moves me…

---
abandoned eternity
this performance is an experiment, to give
space to two conditions we carry in the
framework of our bodymind. in a larger scale is
represents our limited human experience on
earth and the remembering of our timeless
soul we carry within.
so carries our body, which is falling apart and
aging every moment, the eternal longing of
returning to our origin and remembering of our
own destiny.
in the helpless trial to delay time and holding
on to external things, we amplify our feeling of
helplessness and separateness – those days we
called it crisis.
in the interrelation of those two qualities i am
becoming the vessel from which my dance
unfolds and desires to express itself into the
empty space. being moved by the naked fear
of antagonism and the fragile essay to touch
the face of god.
inspired by syros island and its abandoned
houses, those became silent witnesses of the
ever changing nature and the remembering
itself.

Heart of Tao Resonance Art

Dear Friends and Supporters,

It has been my dream to create an entity that unifies all my healing and Butoh practices.  Today I would like to announce the launch of my new web site, Heart of Tao Resonance Art!

My journey has started in 2005, the year that my father passed away.  I left Ragamala Music and Dance Theater, my home for ten years.  I disbanded Paneer Project and decided to study Butoh, a contemporary performance art form from Japan.  I found my teacher Rhizome Lee online and started to receive online tutorage.  From him I learned about Tao Shiatsu and Resonance. 

My life has changed drastically in 2007 when I went to India to study with Mr. Lee at Subbody Butoh Foundation for six months.  I learned and experienced so much there that when I came home, my perception of life has changed completely.  I felt confused and isolated.  Life here felt disconnected and empty.  I needed to resonate and feel oneness.  This need led me to pursue teaching Subbody Butoh and learning Tao Shiatsu.  Along the way, I also discovered Spring Forest Qigong.  All these practices taught me how to resonate with others physically, mentally and spiritually.  And I wanted to share with anyone who are interested.  I found my path.

I finished my Butoh study in India last December after spending two years for intensive training.  I continue to study Tao Shiatsu and Spring Forest Qigong, so I can help more people more effectively.  I am here and I am ready to take the next step.

Heart of Tao Resonance Art is a place where people can find tools to heal themselves and heal others, a place to practice to live healthier, happier life and a place to express their beings and create a community of like-hearted people.  

Please visit our web site: www.HOTResonanceArt.com

It is still work in progress, so your inputs are valuable.

 Heart of Tao Resonance Art would like to encourage everyone to start their healing paths wherever they are in their life. So, we honor “Give as you are able” policy for all Tao Shiatsu and Spring Forest Qigong healings. Please feel free to make appointment by calling 612.703.7501 or emailDoushinGadu@gmail.com

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Love and Light,

Gadu

Agu Tara



Agu danced in Rajastan

Agu continued workshops and performances in Delih, Rajastan and so on constantly.

I can feel that her butoh deepened a lot only through the pictures. The "Flower of Kan (=Flower of disability)" workshop which she held in March changed her.
Agu got the deep secret of butoh to dance on the edge of Life and Death.
It is other end of modern and contemporary dance and butoh which is bound by the narrow self-expression.
Such a dance on the edge is not able to get by learning.
Only by a deep awareness of inner necessity of Life that there is no other just to do so, at the end of the tireless fight against ego, such a necessary butoh is coming out.

Also a good news that she will get a new studio in Delhi near the days.
Congratulation!
She will name it "Quiet House".
Ripples of Life Resonance is spreading little by little.
It continues to develope into a flow like rivers and open pleasant future.
Agu and her students will bring their butoh peice for the sixth Himalaya Butoh Festival in June 10-22, 2013.
Hope to see you soon!

Dear Lee,

How are you? how is your health?

lots happening. life is growing in strange ways.
i wrote to you two days back, a long mail and
then deleted every thing.

had a wonderful butoh session today. now, i
have extended my classes,- thurs, fri and sat
also. Mon, tues and wed i go to NAZ india and
work with kids. Children are best teachers for
midwives.

also, the studio is coming along. i shared some
pictures on Facebook. i feel strange...and don't
know what brought all this about. the red god
is moving me, all the time. the studio will take
3 to 4 weeks to get ready. and then we can
have regular practice and create a performance
space, also.

Also, now students practices will become more
regular.....and then we will come down for the
festival and perform and participate in
workshops. Do let me know the dates as soon
as possible, so that we can lock them.

World qualia is very strong these days. Also,
heat in Delhi is very intense. Sometimes,
subbody/life feels suppressed.... then reverse
twist. very new resonance patterns. In the last
few months i danced things that i have never
danced before. Delhi is growing me in ways i
never imagined i would/ could grow. ...earlier
last month after flower of kan workshop, i
performed in pushkar, a beautiful place in
rajasthan. Karm took beautiful pictures also. I
am attaching a few. also.. a few weeks back
we did a street performance at C.P. that was
amazing for 40 mins!

also, i call the studio, 'the quiet house', i don't
know why. i feel nervous & shy. hahaha.

looking forward to hearing from you,

resonance!

Break the rule at the best timing

Life, subbody and cobody are always finding the best timing to break the rules, to mutate the scores, to invent new resonance patterns. Sometimes it becomes the biggest creation. My beloved teacher Foucault gave me a suggestion this morning.



Rules are empty in themselves

“Rules are empty in themselves, violent and unfinalized; they are impersonal and can be bent to any purpose. The success of history belong to those who are capable of seizing these rules, to replace those who have used them, to disguise themselves so as to perfect them, invert their meaning, and redirect them against those who had initially imposed them.”
— Michel Foucault, Language, Counter-Memory, Practice

Pit, Workshop and performance
at Syros


One of the oldest student Pit will have workshops with Angeliki group and performance as an Artistic Residency of Syros Dance Center.
This is the commemorable beginning of the third stage of expansion of Life Resonance.
First stage was only at Subbody School Himalaya, second stage was graduated students started activities at each places for these years, and now the third stage which students start interaction in the world.
I have been waiting for this day for many years.
Never happy so much!
It will continue to be accelerated in many places on the planet in the future.
The world is filled with ripples of Life Resonance quietly.


dear lee,
some days ago i arrived in syros, i love it here.
i am very happy to meet angelikis group and
work with them - welcome to the world of
dance!

the last few months i had to become still – a 7
year cycel was ending for me. yes its 7 years
ago i came to india first time and where i
discoverd the butohdance at your school and
with it the endless and rich journey through
the body.

i feel everything is starting again - but with a
deeper understanding. i learned to listen to my
body carefully and when i feel a true impulse
to take the next step.
i want to dedicate my life to the dance and to
its healing and transforming potential and
share this with others.

at syros i will prepare a
soloperformance which
i will present end of the month…

on 20./21. april 2013
i share a workshop on eros,
the male and female qualitites…

Eros and Agape

This workshop is an invitation to discover and
play with the two polarities of the male and
female.
Its said the relationship between those two
qualities makes the world turning. Its
described in endless dramas, poems and
archetypic images since the very beginning…
adam and eve, in jungians concept of anima
and animus or in greek mythology between
eros and agape and many more...
One of the strongest unconscious stereotype
we find in the victim and the aggressor - which
seems humanities strongest blockage and bind
of energie – but here also lays its greatest
potential of healing oneself and the planet.
With our bodies, in individual and group
exercises we try to dance what we carry and
express what wants to break free.
In this short journey we may go to different
states and emotions, beyond that there shines
through the source of our real potential and
creativity.

in stillness i became also clear of my protobody
- i call it the "CORPUS RELIGO" - its the body
who reminds itsself of its own origin. its a
religious as spiritual body… in may of my
dances i discoverd the presence of a strong
archetype which enters my body… i will show it
end of june in my old hometown. together with
a friend we organized an exhibition of painting,
my photocollages and a trilogie which i will dance.

Here I am

A little bit more than a year ago I attended the
Subbody Butoh school in the Himalaya. I just
read "Here I am" again. Still a clear statement
and I so much adore states of clarity!
(Especially my own :))


11 o’clock

Here I am – Doing Butoh in between Dharamsala and McLeod in Kangra, district of Himachal Pradesh, India. It has an average elevation of 2082.

After the first days I proceed in understanding why I am here. It feels really good to understand something in my life.

The storm of thoughts is still very present, far away from being silent … but I can register and see more where they are coming from.

Just now I had an amazing experience in class where some nice girls were approaching me, then transformed in witches and with all their force they aimed towards putting me in an imaginative box! They fulfilled their task, but they had a damn hard time!

I am seeing the Himalaya, this beautiful mountain formation from the dance studio and the birds are twittering. Sometimes their sounds conjure a smile on my face. In the school I can find silence, death and life. Sanity, insanity and the abyss itself – the place where you feel the fall doesn’ t stop. Anything is possible and the journey to the subbodies seems endless and full of mysterious wisdom I don’t understand. Here is space for the unknown to become known and to become unknown again if it is necessary. I learned to move and dance but that is just the first step in finding my own dance. I am exploring and I am finding material I haven’t touched before.

Everything is resonating. Everything within space and time.

My mind is watching. He is entertaining me in various ways and sometimes he can be very funny! I see that for the first time in such clarity. The funny mind! Ha, Ha, Ha. We all know that in every judgement lies no judgement and therefore development. Right? So, NOW I say YES to my life. I affirm it to the extent I am capable of!

Enjoy your life friends.

Odile、You did it!
"Fallen From Grace"

Odile completed and performed her life work butoh "Fallen from Grace" at last.
She resonanted with the Mesopotamia Goddess, and dived into the darkness of underground for many years, and finnaly completed the travel.
The result of the journy is this piece.
She danced from darkest part to brightest part of the feminine so far, she broke the stereotype of femininity
and expanded it maximum from the Great mother which loves all, and eats all, destroyer, wisdom, girl, woman, until the goddess.
This butoh piece which danced such width from the lightest end to the darkest end of Feminine must be the first time in human history.
It must become a dance that remains forever.

 Lee,

This means so much, Thank YOU! It was a long, hard journey into the darkness. There is deep healing in the shadows. It took so long for my personality to accept this dance of LIfe, but I would not do it any differently today. I am learning so much, investigating life deeply. I am learning about transparency and oneness. Life has so much to share and wants us all to be available to its secrets.

Thank you for your work and your dedication. Your being, YourSelf, resonates around the planet and affects all of us.

I hope Life leads me back to India at some point, or leads you to the United States!

with love,

Bo, Performing now, "Whispers of the shadow of a quivering leaf"

When: 28, 29, 30 March & 1, 4, 5, 6, 8 April 19:30
Where: B-floor, Bangkok


Read an article of Bangkok Post

Whispers of the Shadow of a Quivering Leaf

- Bo Kittiphon is one of the very few dancers in Thailand who can truly call themselves butoh artists. And her commitment and love for the dance form shone through in her latest creation. The piece charts the dancer's artistic and personal journey with an photo exhibition and a performance. The exhibition serves as a box of memories leading the audience into the box of the present moment _ the theatre _ where Bo is present in the flesh. This slow meditation of a dance started off at a crawling pace as Bo, with her face concealed behind her long hair, eased her way out from behind the layers of translucent white fabric, peeling away layers of self bit by bit, working her way towards some form of release. Sometimes just slivers of her body could be seen, and her breathing became the most palpable presence in the room. When the light shone bright on her, Bo slipped into a darker place: The energy and the rhythm intensified and accelerated. Her body seemed to quiver with sorrow, weeping. When she finally revealed her face to the audience, the revelation felt rather too brief before she began folding into herself again in preparation for the final release. The ending felt sublime as her movement became light, airy, and uplifting. The spare sound design by Teerawat Mulvilai and the gorgeous lighting by Jira Eiamsa-ard truly stood out without overshadowing the performance, making this minimalist creation a complete emotional and mental experience.

Resonating with cancer transparently for four years


Dear Lee and subbody friends

I have been following with great interest all your events and happenings, I am so glad that the creative process is very much alive all over the world.

Mine pretty much stopped last year in October after my last 2 performances. My health has not been too good since September. The cancer seems to be much better, although the pain is still present and my digestive system in a total mess. Unfortunately I have also found out that I suffer from an early and bizarre deterioration of all my vertebras which affects the bones and muscles all over my body. (I am learning new medical words such as fibromyalgia, something to add to my vocabulary.)

What a change it brought in my daily life! Everything has slow down a lot. There are times when I feel exhausted and can hardly walk, most of the times my bones and muscles are very painful and scream, times when simple acts like putting clothes on, opening a bottle of shampoo , taking a book or a glass, or switching light become complicating and like too many missions impossible! I feel I am a grand-mother, old, weak, tired. I wake up paralyzed some morning. And sometimes I feel better and taste the joy of a moving body ,even if slowly.

My main activity has become studying my painful body, studying the infinite varieties of pain, adjusting life and accepting. I had to refuse some dance performance and teaching opportunities for which I had worked hard to get. The mind and heart want; the body cannot. I don't remember a life without pain, I don't remember a light and painless body.

I stopped my butoh practice, too painful and no energy for that. Or that is what I thought. I now realize that I have been in subbody mode all the time, every day and all day long, listening to my subbody , searching for the voices inside, going deep to let out the quolias that I had kept silent too long. I experienced many strange journeys, I became possessed body, silent body, the body of others. I traveled back to my mother's womb and to past lives. I experienced dying a few times. I touch many edges. Sometimes I don't know anymore who i am. My body is killing itself and I want to know why ...

Lee, your subbody butoh is indeed a healing process, I am living it every day.

I surrendered to the power of healing -self healing, quolias, forgiveness, listening, opening, not judging, the mind and body process. my condition has already improved so much since I accepted and integrated this, it is quite incredible.

The last 6 months have been unique indeed . I aged a lot, or is that I become wiser ;))?
I kept my classes, even when I felt terrible, even for one student. Guiding people is what keeps me going, I marvel again and again at the power of movement, of letting go. I am rewarded when I see a new light in their eyes.
I thank you, Lee, for giving us this teaching experience at the school.

I just spent 2 months in France and going back 'home' to Asia, to Singapore next week. I hope to feel better and better, I am working a lot on the energy and cellular level for this. I must be patient ( which I find difficult, I would like so much a miracle, ah ah!)

I am lucky. Very lucky. Being sick and the pain are very powerful teachers, they force me to grow. I am also lucky I have the tools, like butoh, to help me out. Dancing , being now with what I have, who I am , even if I am limited .

And I would like to thank you all for inspiring me and giving me energy with your dances, your workshops, your work, your school. It feels good to know what you are doing, I feel your energy, I feel the cobody.
Keep dancing, keep moving, keep slowing down, keep laughing and tasting the quolias. Keep enjoying your healthy body , never take it for granted.
I wish my own experience to remind you how wonderful a body is, how complicated and fragile, and humbling, how we need beauty and truth , how creation can take unexpected forms, how the world need artists to reveal our hidden treasures.

Thank you!
You take care,

Syv


---------------------
Dear Syv

Your transparent resonance with your cancer encourages us a lot for these years.

You have continued to deepen subbody process with resonating with your cancer for these several years.
So, you taught us that the cancer cells are also members of our hundred trillions of cells. We need just to find the best resonance pattern with them in each moment.
Three years ago you decided not to enter the hospital and to live subbody process with resonating with the cancer. Oneday you told it to all students, and we started to resonate with your cancer together. After graduating subbody school you continued performance and midwiving energeticly in various countries in Asia.
You continued to encourage us extremely. We all continue to share your resonance with the cancer. I could resonante with any hardships if I remember your resonance with the cancer.
Also now I have to resonate with my hidden herpes virus which continued to hide in my body over sixty years. This month it awakes after sixty years and started to give itchy and pain stimulus to my nerves. I might a little bit over work during these period, and my inmmune system would been weakened. I have to slow down and find best resonance with the herpes virus as well.
This is real Life. We just continue to find best resonance with everything transparently until we die.
The Life Resonance encourages us beyond time and space.

Syv, warm warm resonance!

Tao Shiatsu

Fees Change Starting May 1st

After 5 years of Shiatsu practice, I decided to change the fees for treatment to sliding scale. I hope this will help more people to be able to access this wonderful healing remedy.

Staring May 1st, the fees for one 60 minutes Shiatsu session is $40-60.

I understand that there are people who have difficulty with this rate, so I will contunue to have "Pay-As-You-Are-Able" Day every 1st Friday of the month.

Tao Shiatsu is a revolutionary method of Oriental medical treatment and therapy developed by Japanese Master Ryokyu Endo. With significant developments beyond previous shiatsu and massage methods, Tao Shiatsu remains rooted to the holistic spirit of Eastern Medicine. Tao Shiatsu treatments alleviate stress, boost energy and help to manage existing health issues.

*Shiatsu is practiced lying on the floor with the clothes on. Please wear loose comfortable clothes.

Remembrance for the victims of slavery

Did you know that today (March 25th) is the International Day of Remembrance for the victims of slavery and the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade? Here's what the UN website says

For over 400 years, more than 15 million men, women and children were the victims of the tragic transatlantic slave trade, one of the darkest chapters in human history.

The annual observance of 25 March as the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade serves as an opportunity to honour and remember those who suffered and died at the hands of the brutal slavery system, and to raise awareness about the dangers of racism and prejudice today.

Children Workshop "Dream Play" in Dharamsala

Can you hear some wriggle that a strange subbody vibrates to come out of the body? Very tiny, subtle, unfamiliar..like a weird worm, bud in the body.
Please come come.. I'm expecting very much for new subbody but suddenly it's disappeared.
It's been eaten by Thinking.

Last saturday we had a beautiful moment in no thinking world. There was no space to think but beautiful ripple in body to body, bright resonance with nature, people and imaginary world.
We shared with children, learned from them how to move without thinking with big smile, wild jumping, vital energy.
Air, tree, sunshine, all of us..everything was connected with full of resonance.
Just let our body move freely, give primitive freedom to body like "let your body be your guide"by Natasja.

At the first workshop I showed small performance for children. They felt ghost qualia from me, so some of them feared, avoided me. But one week after till now they have been looking for the ghost with curious dreamy face.

The title of the workshop or butoh play with Rogpa tibetan children library is
Dream Play.
Just we jump into playground with imaginary balloon, ball, string, instrument, creature..
Soon we will dance together enjoying invisible world more.

Thanks lee for the clue of imaginary play.
Thanks for butoh friends shared beautiful smile.
Thanks, rhizome sister natasja.
We can share and resonate more deeply also in the children butoh world.

Pit becomes an Artistic Residency of Syros Dance Center

Good news!
This is a pioneer of exchanges of subbodies beyond the borders of countries that begin now.
At first, Pit who have already begun to live as Nomad-Rhizome, becomes an Artistic Residency of Syros Dance Center which Anjeriki group created.
Such cross-border activities will increase from this year flexiblly in various ways.

My dear Lee,

Next week, your student Pit (Pit Marius Soluna) from Switzerland is coming in our Dance Centre in Syros to stay with us for a month, as we offer him an Artistic Residency...!
We will work together and try to connect and perform through our experience of subbody and personal research based on our concepts and methods...
I wanted to share this with you and we will send you material of our work in progress here on the island...

Live like water


Bruce Lee and also Lao Tzu have said "live like water".
Indeed,The movement of the water, it would be helpful to live.
When water flows into low areas (where to go yourself) ,it is shining as happily.
Without any resistance, it goes smoothly.
It is important to find the (where to go yourself) in low areas.
With listening in.


Sayaka (from facebook)
Bo, Chiara, Jonathan, Odile




Until we meet the necessary subbody butoh


This Spring, seemes a rich hearvest festival of subbody butoh in the world.
Chiara's "Ancestral" in Italy,
"Odile's "Fallen from Grace" in USA,
Bo's "Whispers of the shadow of a quivering leaf" in Thailand,
and Jonathan's subbody piece in Spain.
All of them are what they met the first subbody peice in Himalaya during these several years, and all of them continue to deepen it for many years.
They could meet the necessary subbody in Himalaya.
If we meet it, we must feel "Yes, I can dance this piece ten thousand times!".
Why do they continue to dance the same subbody butoh for many years?
Because deep secrets which each of us has to solve are folded in it.

Who am I?
Where am I from?
Why did I become me?
What is subbody?
What is Life?

---These deep secrets are hidden in the necessary subbody butoh. When we continue to dance the necessary piece, gradually the secret will be solved slowly. Each time we must meet a big awareness, and at the same time we must meet deeper secrets will be hidden behind the awareness. It will take for ten years and more, maybe for life long.
The process is really worth to live. I beleive that it must be only one life worth to live.
Until we meet it, we would have continued to stray from our real Life.
I will listen to the breath of the fetus of each student's necessary subbody as a midwife, until it safely born.
It will take at least one or two year.

"In many shamanic societies, if you came to a medicine person complaining of being
disheartened, dispirited, or depressed, they
would ask one of four questions: "When did
you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop being enchanted by stories? When did you stop being comforted by the sweet territory of silence?"

Flower of Kan bloomed

Flower of Kan bloomed in the "Resonance with disability of life" workshop by Agu.
After the death of Hijikata, flower of Kan had been forgotten long years.
It would be the first time that Kan flower bloomed outside the Himalayas.
I can understand how strong fear, anxiety they, Ankur himself and Agu as midwife have experienced and overcome anyhow.
I can not say any word to explain, because it is too deep to speak.
Incredible thing finally began to happen in the world.

Lee


Why dancing the flower of kan is important?
the kan qualia is perhaps, the biggest mystery of life
and the biggest awareness of life.
it is subtly swaying in our everyday life,
we either not notice i...

Agu



Crescent moon shines over her sky
As she hops over the needle riddled path
The foot carries memories of a heart that once sang
And the eyes shadows of dreams once alive.
Love a potion that could not find its way to her parched lips
The longing turned in its grave..

He could only wait
Tied to what he couldn’t see
Silently the rage tiptoed
And whispered lies
Roots growing in
Leaves falling
He could only wait

In between heaven and underworld
The seed quivered when it heard the song
Something must always die for something to be born
Summer breeze and paper airplanes
Smiles printed with red lipstick
Sweat under the layer of lotion
Mask wearing expression thrilled.

Sense of " Everybody is fellow"

I have several experience taught from my son in various aspects of my life.
When I read this sentence in Facebook, suddenly I felt like I was suddenly poked my blind spot of introspection with a stick.
Although we are saying almost the same thing, very different impression by words.
"World Life Resonance" is really hard.
"Everybody is fellow" is soft.
I can not use such words, though I don't know why.
I might have somewhere pulled abnormally.
Maybe there is a unknown tie of "Butoh".
I will try to listen to the condensation that did not notice yet for a while.


Sense of "Everybody is fellow" has come recently.
Although it, so no matter what it seems strange, I have not tell anyone.

Even people who have never met and have met, everyone is fellow.
Some people know, some people do not know, everyone is fellow.
People that passes through the road there and also foreigners, are fellow guys.
Some people put it to me, some people freak out, are fellow guys.
Feeling like that is coming.

Also I become a nasty feeling,
I may do strange thing sometimes,
It is the same for everyone.
So, everybody is fellow guys.

If in a terrible situation I may do harassment, too, I would be even outrageously behavior.
All positions can be switched.
Think about it, everyone is a fellow,
Enemy is gone.

If people come to harass me is a fellow of me, trouble between the people is gone no longer.

To attack others,'m tired.
If everyone is their easy care about,
everybody's companion.

But, because I'm afraid that I would be regarded as a strange person,
This is not to tell anyone.

Rather my heart thinks this...
It is a feeling that such a sense came flying from somewhere.
I wish the sense may fly and jump to everyone on earth.

Let's dance this tragedy of Life

This video was filmed on the island of Midway.
It is apart 2000 kilometers from the other coastline.
Any human does not live.
There is the birds only.
It would be a paradise of the birds before.
There is going unbelievable misery.
Let's resonate with this unexpected results of human activities.

Tokyo Bay and Osaka Bay in the 1970s, had been covered
with huge plastic bottles.
Recently, it seemed a little better, but
it has just spread to middle of the Pacific Ocean!
And now, also the radioactivity leaking from the Fukushima is going to attack
all creatures of the Pacific Ocean.
Was once a paradise of marine life and sea.
Political, economic and everyday activities of human being destroy all of paradise on earth.
Will you be able to overlook without resonance this tragedy as Life?

World Life Resonance!



The second Aniversary of Fukushima is coming.
But, we human are forgetfull the Hude East Japan Earthquake, Tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear accident.
This month, let's take off the shell of a human being.
Take off our Ego and Natinal borders, and become One Life on the planet.
Let's listen to the faint shivering of Life.
Your Life also should resonate with everything on Earth.
Radioactivity continues leaking and spreading to the ocean, atmosphere and the earth still.
It is attacking small creature, sperm and eggs which are weakest Life.
Chernobyl has shown what will begin in a few years.
Let's resonate with every misfortune on earth,
by dancing, singing, talking, hugging, and walking.
Not just Fukushima, let us share the sadness of war, pollution, destruction of nature, discrimination, violence.
Life is resonating beyond time, space and all boundaries.
When we will be able to resonate with all misery in the world as our sadness,
We can share all happiness in the world as One Life.
Please let us know your activities up to 3.11.
Every little thing is fine also.
Let's spread the little ripples of Life Resonance to the world.
And open a new world full of resonance.

Subbody Resonance Butoh,
Spreading from Himalaya to Delhi


Agu Tara



Subbody Resonance Butoh,
Spreading from Himalaya to Delhi


Agu just graduated last year, began to expand various activities in Delhi vigorously.
India has a deep tradition of meditation originally.
Students eager to dive into the darkness of the body are increasing more and more.
"Subbody Resonance Butoh" which Agu named is a nice-sounding word that represents the essence in one word.
We will use this name now.


1. Subbody Resonance Butoh

When: 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th Feb
Where: S-281, 2nd floor, G.K-2, New Delhi
Timing: 12 to 3 p.m
Charges: Rs. 350 per class
for all classes together : Rs. 1500

'Subbody' is the subconscious body. In the subconscious world, the subconciousness and body are melting into oneness; creating a world completely different from the daily world. Away from the binds of ego and thinking the dancer explores infinite ways of creation from the subconcious realm, that go beyond the human binds of judgement and dualism.

We will:
Calm down our daily consciousness through conditioning our body and mind. explore cell breathing. resonance-touch method. listening to subtle sensations and feelings streaming in our life; qualia.

Progress to deeper levels of conditioning and researching methods to dig into the darkness of our lives; open a non-dual and multi-dimensional realm of life.

Unlock the hidden qualia caught in the hidden skin, hidden fluid, hidden joints etc. explore different dancing places within the body and face; explore rotten eye and face of forest.

Research different subbodies hidden in the darkness of our bodies; quiet body, bottom body, protobody, dream body, chimera etc.

research and explore subbody and cobody world creations.
*when one subbody resonates with another subbody then it becomes a cobody.

Poems by Manu and Ankur; Agu's students


After the last three weeks workshop
manu and ankur encountered various
subbodies and new awareness of life.
I asked them to write some sort of review.

they wrote poems! here it is.


By Manu

Wolf man

I have been walking this earth with
heaven above and hell below,
Constantly in touch with and aware of both,
Yet somehow staying sane and whole in-between.
Like a tree I grow in the sacred grove of Gaia,
Wild as the bear, fierce as a lion, free
as an eagle,
Primal as awakened terror stretched infinite...
Traversing the paradox, bridging the chasm,
Stretched across the universe so thin
I am the cracks between time,
And yet so omnipresent as to be
Everywhere and all things
simultaneously
Like time herself marching forever...
Fat like a giant boulder on the chest,
Thin like a scream between the planets...
Chasing me forever on the line between
The surf, the sand, the horizon and land...
Goblins creep up from the heaving depths
And rivers of light pour down from the skies
As the wolf man searches in the moonlit shadows
Of the lunatic landscape of lost souls in-between...
Deep roots and infinite skies, a tree it is now
Having weathered many winters and countless storms
Still standing tall and supple, ready to be reborn...
Thank you mother for that perfect childhood,
Garden of birds, reptiles and butterflies of every hue,
And dreams drifting free upon the soft dew
Like snow upon the wild grasses in springtime...
After the seemingly endless labyrinth of
The ocean of tears and the sea of suffering,
Those memories of paradise heal me
And help me hope and dream anew,
Stretch my branches and spread my wings
Towards the sun...
When the dark night of the soul has ended
And dawn has come and the day begun...



by Ankur

Light can bring its own

The firefly says
Not to be afraid
When the dark night dawns and sprawls
To be aware of the rhythm intrinsic
To be flow with the outer torrent
To see not only what is shown
But to see all that cant be known
To absorb
To drown
To let self drown
To believe
To let go
And to dance.

The stars and the firefly
The butterfly orange wing
The scars to be left in eye
The story that never sinks
Every child sunlit blossom
Every old life curling tree
The buzz of the rain forever pouring
The heart of a silent me
The time endless whispers fluid
The ocean in a drop
A finger moves.

An eyelid bats.

Demons dark crazy frenzy
Floating trans mutating form
Creeping up the silent alley
Whispers get drawn
Walk on Wire.

Screams banging on the door
Wails crawling on the floor
Pounding anger
And still the clock ticking not
Is it me?
Where?
You see the fields and the stream flowing
A blue mountain stands
The brown golden people
The tune plays.

Water . Under . Sky . Trust .
Forming Endless
Swarming needles
Spear broken
Thrust inside
Burnt eyes
Burnt mind
Brilliance shine
True.
Up and down and back below
Fly the agenda today glow
Fear hundred faces smile
Lit eyes. Dry Ice.
Smoke.
Breath. She.
She
She.
Caterpillar drops falling
Tick-tock - tick-tock - tick-tock
In corner, pulse
small
soft
Story of a pearl Milk and poison
overflow
In and out, in and out
To go? No. No.
Endless.
Myriad
Forever.

Through these three weeks, my
understanding of my life, my sensitivity
towards it has increased manifold. After
the last performance, I desperately
wanted to go deeper and to feel my
subbody more. During the workshop a
lot of new things came out. Lot of new
awareness dawned. Dancing the abyss,
teacher dance, the edges faced, seen
and heard.. so many things...Everytime
doing conditioning,feeling deeper than i
ever did before. It is literally a universe
within. the need to explore it has left
me more thirsty than ever.

Life is transforming at a rapid rate for
me, and there are clearly buds of new
life bursting forth and the old life going
back to where all things come from.
New life has butoh as an integral source
of nourishment, i practically cant live
without it anymore. Few days gone
without calming the conscious mind and
listening to the body and i start feeling
restless. The pull between old life
transforming into manure and the new
life slowly budding and rising ever so
slowly makes it difficult sometimes,
though the struggle is beautiful i must say.

Butoh has taught me so much. Through
it, i my life, my fragmented identities,
my dream-spaces, illusions are all
fusing. Through it all that makes me not
me, all that separates me from being is
melting. Through it I am being born.

hug!

Subbody Botoh Laboratry by Jonathan 2013

Jonathan's Subbody lab in Madrid is developing energetic activiteis this year.
In addition to the regular monthly, weekly activities from Madrid to throughout Spain,
In June, he plans a week festival resonating with the Himalaya Butoh Festival.

The ripples of Life Resonance is spreading gradually thus.
It would grow up to unstoppable resonance anymore soon.
In response to these, It will develope to the
World Simultaneous Life Resonace

from February to 3.11, this year, too.
The world becomes fun more and more!


Performances
When:Feb 1 Fri. & every last saturday of each month.

Workshops
When: Feb 2-3, and one week-end per month
Where: Malaga, Spain

World Resonance
s the following letter.

Hi Lee !
I'll give a workshop next weekend, 2-3 of february, in Malaga, down in the south, by the sea.
I'll also perform on friday the 1st of february.
There will be a workshop one week-end per month.
I'll send you the info for the performances soon. It will happen every last saturday of each month.
I am training alone these days, very early in the morning. It's very interesting. I can deepen in the conditionning. I can explore the dreamworld in a big dark room in a huge city still at sleep.
I will also give four days workshop in May with a butoh friend, in the mountains of Extremadura, near Portugal borders in a wonderful natural surrounding.
I am planning to organize something in June to resonate with subbody butoh festival. Like a full week of workshops and performances, giving the opportunity for the people that are coming to the labs to perform in public. I think that public performances are an essential part of subbody process.

I just came back from two Vipassana courses in a row. And you'll be happy to learn that I finally understood the ego stuff... Nine months of subbody butoh and six vipassanas later, I've experienced from within how prejudical to life is the emergence of ego. Must be that I take my steps very slowly...
I think that's it for now...
Be happy and enjoy mountains and eagles and dreams...

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop with Gadu

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner. “Subbody” means subconscious body. In the subconscious realm, away from the boundary of ego and daily consciousness, our mind and body melt into oneness and create world that is completely different from the daily world. Through various conditioning techniques, a Subbody Butoh practitioner creates movements through exploring the subconscious realm.

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop is designed as a pre-requisite for Subbody Butoh Workshop in order to learn the basic conditioning methods and approach of Subbody Butoh Method. The essence of Subbody Method is “Resonance.” As Taoist master Lao-tzu said “Tao can be told is not an eternal Tao,” Resonance is also indescribable. It can only be felt and experienced. Come and experience the power of Resonance!

This workshop will focus on the essential aspects of Subbody Method:

Quiet down the daily consciousness and listen to the subtle body signals.
Go beyond our physical, psychological and social bounds in order to create movements that are novel and unique to the individual body.
Develop movements through opening eight channels (body feeling, movement, visual, audio, emotion, relationship, world-self image and thinking)
Explore movements through Hidden Body (Hidden Skin, Hidden Muscle, Hidden Joints, etc)
Through the resonance with other Subbody, become Co-body.
Subbody Butoh Workshop is a group process and this workshop requires no previous dance experience.

Anyone who would like to explore his or her hidden creative potentials is welcome!

Subbody Butoh
'Subbody' is the subconcsious body. In the
subconscious world, the subconciousness and
body are melting into oneness; creating a world
completely different from the daily world. Away
from the binds of ego and thinking, participants
will explore creativity, originality and resonance
ability of their lives and subbodies. In the
subconcious realm, life can explore infinte
possibilities of creation, going beyond the human
binds of dualism and judgement, self/others,
in/out, physical/mental, life/death, gender,
culture, nationalities, ...forms..etc and so on.

We will:
Condition our body and mind to switch from daily
mode to listening mode
Become a quiet body; experience cell breathing
and listening to subtlest of sensations, tendencies,
feelings streaming in our life; qualia.
Uncover the hidden qualia; layers of darkness in
the hidden skin, hidden joints, hidden fluid,hidden
muscles ..etc.
Explore different conditioning methods to enter
subbody world and deepen the resonance.
When a subbody resonates with another subbody;
then they become cobodies. As we progress, we
will explore different cobody world creations.
