IN ART WE TRUST !!!!!!


My old friend, Ka-Ge, We resonate with you deeply!


It's time that the art works of its full power. I mean the art would change society. In Thai, we have an artist against the dictator came to every session, writer. Student newspapers at the same time, we also recognize the name Wan Tian Narin sriburapha lathe. Dharma seni he ranks so many monuments and you get rid of the carts to pave the way, men after dai coming. We have friendly and magical landscape poet. Actor actress drama student activists and artists who make art during a 14-6: age: I come to mean the triumph of the people that came to power in 1623 because of a common practice, they come back. The battle over people's victory in the shortest time. The appearance of right-to-left, the destroyer accompanied Tung sang a murder at Sanam Luang. Leaf age, disappeared into the forest before casualties Disappointed. They lost to a mist of authoritarianism After many battles, both subjects of equal Accuracy. Democratic justice to all those problems, but age does not disappear, but the deep roots of democracy and authoritarianism of traditional Thai style and many other traditional options to offer, join national development, Thai (Thai Thai Thai has made policy development)

Honza


An old student Honza wrote about Jo-ha-kyu.
He tries how to break the boring performance without
Jo-ha-kyu development.
The truth of creation, only Jo-ha-kyu is not enough.
We need Ka-hi-mei (Flower-Secret-Mystery) and
Zu-ji-cho (Picture-Ground-Signs) absolutely,
otherwise it is not able to dance an actual Butoh of Life.
Johakyu is what Zeami had grabbed the risk of life.
Hijikata had deepen it, too.
If only applying Jo-ha-kyu method, it must have a risk
to end merely as a Jo-ha-kyu game.
But, I resonate with this as an experiment to share
the Jo-ha-kyu method.
Through only the bodily experience, we can get it
not only as an useful tool for creation,
but also it is the rhythm of Life.



The Jo Ha Kyu Matrix

Ever since I started researching butoh in 2007 I have been searching for a way to easily communicate a choreography whilst at the same time keeping the subbody=cobody resonance intact.

I approach choreography as a game: It is a Game of Freedoms and Barriers.

Life (the dancers, musicians, public, nature) provide the freedoms. The physical universe and the choreographer provide the barriers in the form of the laws of the physical universe and the laws of the choreography.

According to the subbody philosophy there is no good or bad butoh. We try to transcend the subject/object dichotomy and in that realm good or bad are non-existing.

From the viewpoint of the audience however a performance can be boring or interesting. Most butoh researchers will confirm that there are many boring butoh performances.

The Jo Ha Kyū Matrix is my cure for the boring butoh performance. Since 2010, when I first discovered this japanese knowledge at the Himalaya Subbody Butho School I have been experimenting with it, mostly using the X-Reduction & Regeneration techniques. Basically it is a 2 level recursion Jo Ha Kyū structure which gives 9 states.

this is The Jo Ha Kyū Matrix of Colorbound,

'Swan'

Swan: A Moving Body Expression (Non-verbal) is a new production of SANDHAN.
Swan: A Moving Body Expression will give you different experience. Different in taste, language, Concept, Idea etc.
It is all about a swan couple who are very young. They are very exciting about their future life. But they don't have any experience of real life. Real life is very rude, tuff and hard. Ultimately the swan couple is victim and they suffer the ups and downs, push and pull of life.......
Want to share the sadness of a human mother through a couple of swan.
Please come to see us on 20th of June at SANDHAN Courtyard, Hagalakata, Bakaliaghat, Karbi Anglong'

Dear subbody friends on resonance spider webs!

Most of all, thanks from the bottom of my heart for warm resonance about my suggestion of last email. Still many subbodies have been sending some words, ideas, the necessity for network.
Soon we will communicate more about First project, reduction by X.
No need to feel any pressure, just small qualia, efforts for your life in your daily life.

Actually this initiation is not for making visible network or boundary.
It's just a small initiation based on subbody school experience.
It doesn't matter if we have subbody school experience or not.
Everybody has many hidden subbodies. In this world, there is no boundary, copyright, limits. Connecting and separating freely.
Whoever could suggest, join. People, beings, space around you and me.
Just we are not alone. In this spider web, we stay in deep resonance connection. Very connected butoh islands.
And if this network email disturbs you, let me know freely.

Another beautiful letter from Holand.
If you are looking for very special summer with dance of life, think about this Poland project. We could creat dance and film in Poland, and France more…
Resonate with the letter from Kaska, below letter.


<picture from 2013 earth day improvisation with Tibetan in Dharamsala>



Dear Gio and all subbodies,

I feel your idea is great and the description of your wish too.
I feel many of us resonate similarly with it.

In the same time, if you want to meet with other subbodies and find a collaboration I feel Poland is a great opportunity to do that. There is space, there is time and there is midwife of subbody method - LEE. It can be for us still like a safe womb where we can grow all together in a new form of being.

I am sending my warm invitation to all subbodies to come to Poland this summer.
I know its a bit weird country and maybe unknown but this is also a chalange for all of us to overcome judgements and comfort zone.
It can be next line to KAN for many of us.
Timing is most important.
Cost of this workshop is also less than cheap. Money is not a problem.

With warm resonance,
Kaska

ps. I have my daily practice in melting, together with Kristien. It's growing to something bigger than stage performance - it's already life performance based on deep relationship process. Practice in mirroring, dealing with idea and action:_)

"There is relationship only when there is a sense of contact, a sense of communication, a sense of communion"
"Unless we establish right relationship, all our lives will be constant battle, individually as well as collectively."

Madras, 9 January 1966
J.Krishnamurti

So... let's relax together in the present moment in Poland:_)

best to all of you & enjoy the day,
From my way back Amsterdam-Berlin

No need to feel any pressure, just small qualia, efforts for your life in your daily life.

Actually this initiation is not for making visible network or boundary.
It's just a small initiation based on subbody school experience.
It doesn't matter if we have subbody school experience or not.
Everybody has many hidden subbodies. In this world, there is no boundary, copyright, limits. Connecting and separating freely.
Whoever could suggest, join. People, beings, space around you and me.
Just we are not alone. In this spider web, we stay in deep resonance connection. Very connected butoh islands.
And if this network email disturbs you, let me know freely.

Another beautiful letter from Holand.
If you are looking for very special summer with dance of life, think about this Poland project. We could creat dance and film in Poland, and France more…
Resonate with the letter from Kaska, below letter.


<picture from 2013 earth day improvisation with Tibetan in Dharamsala>



Dear Gio and all subbodies,

I feel your idea is great and the description of your wish too.
I feel many of us resonate similarly with it.

In the same time, if you want to meet with other subbodies and find a collaboration I feel Poland is a great opportunity to do that. There is space, there is time and there is midwife of subbody method - LEE. It can be for us still like a safe womb where we can grow all together in a new form of being.

I am sending my warm invitation to all subbodies to come to Poland this summer.
I know its a bit weird country and maybe unknown but this is also a challenge for all of us to overcome judgements and comfort zone.
It can be next line to KAN for many of us.
Timing is most important.
Cost of this workshop is also less than cheap. Money is not a problem.

With warm resonance,
Kaska

ps. I have my daily practice in melting, together with Kristien. It's growing to something bigger than stage performance - it's already life performance based on deep relationship process. Practice in mirroring, dealing with idea and action:_)

"There is relationship only when there is a sense of contact, a sense of communication, a sense of communion"
"Unless we establish right relationship, all our lives will be constant battle, individually as well as collectively."

Madras, 9 January 1966
J.Krishnamurti


So... let's relax together in the present moment in Poland:_)

best to all of you & enjoy the day,
From my way back Amsterdam-Berlin

Surprisingly, this year, old students has grown up. Not only performances and workshops, they are organizing festivals of free-form in many cities.
It even surprised also as The 'Free Field Festival' by Marie-Louise in Denmark and 'Fringe Festival' by Cammy in Amsterdam, is a Rhizome type festival which go beyond borders or cross-borders. Yes, it's time to be complicit in this trend of world Rhizoming.
Let's connect freely, and separate flexibly!

A Collaboration with an artist Snehal of Pune near Mumbai

journey in the Summer, in Europe, America, and in the
Winter in India, south Asia, southern Hemisphere is going on.
Whew, it's going to be busy, but there is no regret even die
on the way of this travels. Because a midwife of Rhizome
Lee was born to serve the world to become Rhizome.

The show opened yesterday with a powerful Butoh
performance by Akshi and Ankur. They danced the

We are co-creating a new form of worldwide communications

Now many subbody=cobodies around the world are dancing with resonance simultaneously!
We are trying to co-create the world's life resonance Festival, instead of existing perfomance systems of Butoh , dance and theater.
It is a new form of worldwide comminication system, called Nomad =Rhizome=Plateaux type.
Beyond all borders; nation-state, culture, religion, economy, power, sexuality, disability and so on.
Subbody and cobody can be separated and linked freely.
Whether theater or street, nature, it does not matter.
We have been caught up in too many constraints .
It is a movement while dancing, let us release from those boundary.
It is what your Life wishes truely, isn't it?

Espacio en Blanco, Madrid

Hi Lee !
wow... it's been a long time since I want to write.
I often visit Jogiwara in dream, I go to school... And I wake up with a teaching. Thank you for that...
And in these dreams I also visit many times a village that is higher, above McLoed, above everything, a village I didn't know of... I go there and strange things happen...
I was dreamdancing, from my bellybutton was hanging and floating a fetus, but on the outside, in front of me, I was walking in ruins, futuristic ruins, in a near future when humanity technological progress will have collapsed, I was walking amazed by this fetal creature I wouldn't touch, so different from me and yet organically attached to my body. And then I realized there was an army of lost souls behind me, they want to grasp the fetus, they need it. I'm in the middle, creating distance... And my body is dancing.
I wonder if we don't dance just for this: to free our future from the past. To untwist memories... Fetus are old, they are coming from an inmemorial time, and future is maybe always son of time. Creation sparks from the past but from a past that has nothing to do with a timeline.
There is a lot of dance in Madrid. I am doing a lot of collective improvisation but in the "here and now" mode... I miss the "not here not now, no time no space" I listened from you three years ago... It felt so liberating...
I remember Akshi coming back from New York, saying how challenging it is to improvise with contemporary dance people, entering their world and their approach and yet not losing nothing of resonance. Subbody = cobody. Where's the dance, the necessity, in this world I am in ?, always asking my subbody...
I still midwife, loving it, finding new paths, rediscovering the known ones, learning the science of open space and not knowing...
I guide a weekly group still, from september, it's very different from intensives, so much more daily life present. In a intensive you hace some time, you open some possibilities and assist the best you can to avoid miscarriage. But week after week, when somehow people know your song, when the butoh class is part of weekly routine. So different. Enriching. But difficult, not so bad for a first year though... I am sharing processes and ideas in a blog: butosofia.wordpress.com
I join info of next two intensives, two days in june, during himalaya's festival, and a whole month in july.
I am very interested in organizing a workshop with you next summer in 2015. In july. I would need to know soon if you want to come to Spain or if you go to the USA or somewhere else. We are going one month with Zambrano in august. Before that I would like to make reservation for a nice dancing space in spanish woods for next summer. Let me know as soon as possible for you...
Wish you all the best,
jonathan

 devastating disaster and people of Tohoku (northern pacific coast of Japan) are
 still struggling. This fundraiser helped us awaken our hearts and send the message
 "
WE CARE! YOU ARE NOT FORGOTTEN!"

 

We organized Charity Healing (Shiatsu and Chair Massage) and Clothes Drives in

 and we raised $1680 and sent many items of clothing!!! Also, people in Madison 
made cards and dolls for children in Japan! 


THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!


   

 

The collected items were sent to Kawauchi Village in Fukushima prefecture, Japan 
and shared among their community. The funds will be used to buy fruits and 
vegetables for people in the village.

Sample Video of Reduction by X (Crick here)
Walking by Natasja and Gio

A Walk with Reduction by X

Gio and Natasja

What is the "Reduction by X"?
"Reduction by X" is most important technique for infinite transformation
of "Quiet House" by Hijikata Tatsumi.
It is a technique to reduce an element from daily human body.
It is possible to substitute any element into 'X'.

For example, Gio and Natasja reduced 'speed' from daily motion of
human, and they are walking with very slow speed in this video.

If you put < size > to X, it becomes small size .
If you put < solidity >, it becomes fluid body like ameba.
If you put < fluidity>, it becomes stone body or Kugutsu body.
If you reduce < one dimension> from the three dimensional objects
in general, it becomes a paper of the two-dimensional,
In case of reducing < two dimensions>, you become a stick.

Hijikata could invent infinite transformation with using this method.
He have created 'weakened body' by reducing < health>, 'vaporizing
body' by reducing < solidity>, 'animal body' by reducing
< intelligence>, and so on.

As to share this secret technique with dancers all over the world,
Gio chose this theme for the first suggestion of < Bloom Kan Flower>.

You can reduce any thing from your daily body movement, speed, time,
size,slidity, fluidity, sexuality, age, strenghth, indentity, sexuality, health,
number of dimension, a part of body, eye, arm, leg, nerve,
flexibilty and so on.
The weakened body of Hjikata was made by integrating all of those
reductions
Just tr yany experiments, and Please send a short video clip of your
deduced body. Gio will edit and integrate it into a whole video clip.
It must bea treasure house of this most important technique of Hijikata.
We can share the result. It will be an treasure box of this technique of
'Reduction by X'. We can share it, and use it for deepening for your
creation .

Gio initiates a worldwide nomad=rhizome
'Kan Flower'


Blossom Kan Flower!


Dear subbody friends!

I am Dust Gio who is one of old students of subbody resonance butoh
school Himalaya. Many times love comes like a car accident, very
unexpectedly.
For me the strongest unexpected love is Butoh at subbody school.

 First year with school, I smiled in the light of butoh, second year
I cried in the dark abyss, third year I opened new eyes to resonance
world and now, I’m transforming as a initiator for dance of life beyond
all borders. As you remember a cobody practice in school, one
becomes initiator with new qualia, second one becomes promoter
adding own qualia and another become followers. And at the Tame,
best timing another one becomes initiator, promoter, follower
changingqualia, world. Finally be Rhizome.

As a initiator, giving birth a subbody butoh collaboration.
Many students are spreading all over the world with deep resonance
through school.
Many nomad dancers want to dance, share workshops dreaming
Rhizoming in poor condition. We have beautiful invisible network like
transparent spider threads.
I’d love to put subbody energy in the thread to support each other,
to creat together, to bring butoh qualia to daily life.
We make harmony. We make disharmony, too. To face our true
nature in daily world taking off all human conditions one by one.



The name of subbody collaboration is KAN FLOWER.

Read about Kan Flower 1

Flower of Kan (=Flower of Disability) 2

As Lee said, Kan is the most difficult, miserable state of life and
reverse, twist it to new beauty. Kan flower is disable flower. Very
weakened body. When we reach to the weakest body, resonance
ability becomes biggest, subtlest. Disability of body but ability of life
resonance.
This collaboration ‘Kan flower’ could be network, foundation or
company. In the real life resonance ‘Kan Flower’ would blossom
toward inner outer universe.



Suggesting First project of Kan Flower

REDUCTION BY X

 X can be everything. For example, speed, direction, health, ability,
balance, sexuality, human body and voice, eyes, social face....
Explore own special X. Dance at own daily life space. For example
find out interesting city street or park. Dance with a simple X talking
video. I collect all videos and recreat a piece video. Imagine in one
video, many dancers bringing own X in own city. The resonance
beyond nationality, borders creating new world in the daily life. The
revolutionary beauty.
I’d like to experiment specially during international subbody festival
(Jun) as a world resonance.

You can see the sample video (avove)



World
 

Until we become Multitude!

During the Summer, resonating with Himalaya Butoh Festival, many subbody=cobody do performances,
workshops and diverse activities on the planet, with connecting freely and separating flexibly.
We have already grown up to Rhizome=Nomad=Plateaux. It will continue till Rhizome become Multitude. At that moment, the world will change drastically!
Let's enjoy the Life Resonance beyond time and space!

Five characters bound by fate to endure, struggle and strive towards
an ultimate end. It is now as it has been since the beginning of time
a continuous resonance with life itself. Yet the resonance disturbed,
ill-fated by the counsel of the wretched. Only in the innocent can truth
be found. Thereby beauty unfolds itself. For truth is the only beauty
that can manifest itself in the hearts of men as the guiding moral of
complete resonance with himself and the ones around him.
Five characters faced with an inexcusable act of disobedience forced
upon them by higher orders, by higher decrees.

This performance is directed towards an audience which is torn,
confused, faced with a future of uncertainty.
We too find ourselves in the midst of this audience and frantically
trying to grasp

'Uprooting The Aboriginals'

"Our roots. Centuries of links that bind us to our lands.
Accumulated memories. Nourishment, and
entanglement.
We have always been here, even before they arrived.
But now, we must leave. Our roots are old, and not
greedy enough."

Where: Sudarshan Rangmanch, Pune, India

When: May 26 at 6:00pm to Jun 8 at 8:00pm

Snehal K Dutt explores ideas of identity and pursuits of progress
through a series of sculptures and paintings with the hopelessness
of a nomad, looking for her roots.

She is joined by
Ankur Pandey and Akshi Khandelwal, Butoh artists
from Delhi, who have been working with themes of entanglement
through this fiercely expressive Japanese dance form.

Gio's Journey to Xibalba

2008 summer, when I was walking in this small space, I met a girl.
She was invisible, only I could see her in my inner universe.
She wasn't high class, was dancing in the darkness between a tear
and a smile behind wall. I was chasing her, suddenly I got strange
shock.
She was me. Just in my feeling I existed there long time ago.
A tear on my face.
Next day I visited there again and was watching the big river in Ankorwat.
On the ripples of the river, my another life was screened in my feeling.
I was a dancer, but in the life I had to stop dancing. And I was a man.
After the travel in Cambodia, I often imagined I would dance next life.
But when I met butoh, I realized why not this life.
And 2014, Canada with Xibalba
Xibalba means underworld, place of fear. During searching Xibalba
I meet Mayan ancestry,
Many symbols, archetypes, hidden stories. Suddenely I encounter
with the moment in Cambodia. And I see why my life guided here.
It's the timing to explore inside ancient world.
The necessity of Xibala in my dance of life.
"Body form from inward cosmos, we are connected to the parade
of ancestral shapes"
(Myth & Body)
Inspiration from ankorwat of chong, Xibalba with gessuri and Javier,
first midwife Ikuko and Lee, thanks!

"Dancing with the Shadows"
Butoh Workshop


Odile showed a clear image of her motif of dancing
she has explored many years (See above).
It may be a painting that she might been encountered
at some exhibition or so.
Countless many unknown shadows are living and
streaming in our darkness of the body.
They are imprinted in cell's Life as Life memories of
the four billion years Life history and among the 700
million years human history.
The primitive Life memories have evolved into various
images of archetypes, as Heaven, Hell, God, Devil,
Ghost, Monster, Anima, Animus, Hidden charactor,
Ego, Super Ego and so on.
Not only images of archetypes, but also prototype of
emotion and motion; fear, shivering, shrink, collapse
and so on.
"Shadow' means all of those which bind us
unconsciouely. Through dancing it, we can shift it
from unconscious bondage to novel original creation,
and finally release ourselves from them.
All of them is the difference of resonance pattern of Life.
Life is always exploring the better resonance with them.
To unleash ourselves from all those restraints is
"Butoh of Life".

Subbody Butoh Workshop

Saturday, May 17 at 2:00pm in EDT
Loftimpro in Montreal, Quebec

Breath of life. A walk into the body, away from the mind. Listening to life’s resonance with an open skin.

Through meditation and with different images that we will plant into the body, this approach allows us to
move in new ways. Not moving with the mind, not moving with the ego, not moving as we were taught,
but moving through life’s resonance. Feeling, listening, opening.

Butoh was created by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kasuo Ohno,
following the Second World War. These two Japanese dancers were looking to resist to fixity by rejecting
human conditioning.

The subbody Butoh is a technique that was developed by Rhizome Lee, Japanese dancer and researcher,
who devoted himself to this form. Now developing and teaching his approach in the Himalayas
and all around Europe.

Letter from Agi


Dear Rhizome Lee.
I am honoured :-) I am just exploring various ways to embody what you are describing here, and it is such a beautiful, heart-warming and inspiring journey. We are all sensitive, vulnerable human beings, and it can become a never-ending resource of our creative spirit. I hope we will work together soon.

Love, Agi

Agi



Agi dancing with handicapped people
on the street in Budapest, Hungary



Agi has continued dancing with people such as Down syndrome and autism, a variety of disabilities.
I also created the dance with Down syndrome people for one month 15 years ago in Budapest.
In life, when going to receive any disability though, no choice but to stay alive.
Nobody cannot judge any condition of life beauty or agry in Life.
The judgement by the oneside view of daily healthy ego or self is actually too young and narrow.
All of us have to grow up to Life with taking off the narrow judgement of ego and self.
Only in the resonance with infinite disability, sick, and dead, there is a way for humans to grow into Life from narrow self and ego.
We will create the unexplored novel Beauty of all conditions of Life, including even weakened, aged, damaged, near death of Life.
It's the Butoh of Life to open it.

hi lee, how are you?

i just spent one month in la gomera, a canarien island.

there was a so called rainbow gathering, where people join together
for 1 month in nature - living, sharing and get inspired...
at fullmoon celebration there were 300 people...

its an beautiful field of openness and experimenting where i shared
a danceworkshop just for the man...

more gathering will be this year - especially in east europe...
like in rumania in july and hungaria in september...

i also realized from the 2 workshops you gave this year, that we need
more healing... i felt the participants are mostly beginners and still
need to deepen their connection with the body and the inner worlds
first... also for me it was much deeper when we did conditionings &
exercises.. this were really great somatic experiences...
thanks again!

well, in june i share a workshp myself in switzerland,
kristien&kasia collaborate...
Kaska, Kristien

and would be happy if more cobodies join...!


see the details below

In this 4-day workshop, we dive into unknown layers of our body and
our beings. The supporting nature will help us to feel our own roots
and reconnect with the history enfolded within.
Through various techniques such as butoh dance, voice- and bodywork
and improvisation we sensibilise our perception to expresse and
create our own unique dance.
For the duration of our stay we live together as a community.
We cook and prepare the meals together and support diego, the host
of the land, with smaller tasks.

"Shadows of the delta" Butoh performance
by Santeri Vikström

Congratulation!
Santeri continues to deepen his subbody.
It's so glad. He is developping it with carrying density
and jumping wild. Segmenting is also became more
precise and sensitive. He seems trying to dance the
non-dual and multi-dimensional resonance of Life.
Dear Santeri
Please keep it, and deepen it infinitely
until you become a transparent body!

Congratulation!

works exploring the mystery of "Dark Feminine" based on ancient
Mesopotamian Myth since 2010 in Himalaya.
and web site with Video and Photo Gallery.
Please visit the site.

Hi Lee,

I have a video up, It is very short because it had to be less than 5 minutes for a grant proposal.  I also could not use the second half of the show because it was for mature audiences, but I have some photos :)  The show itself was one hour and thirty minutes...

"Dancing with the Shadows"
Butoh Workshop


Odile seems to be able to share with others her own perspective
of dancing the shadow that the last five years, has explored with
diving into the darkness of the body.
Old students continued to deepen one's own personal quest,
and have grown to the midwife that is able to share the results
with other people.
It is not only happy thing.

The Red God Workshop in Delhi

The "Red God" is a title of 1st paragraph of "Quiet
house" by Hijikata Tatsumi.
It is the symbol of Life which is moved by the invisible
force constantly and randomly.
They are trying to enter the non-dual and multi
resonance world of Life and Death boldly,
So reliable!

in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Hijikata, founder of ankoku butoh, the dance of
darkness, worked with many images. In his texts
there are words referring to his own childhood, but
also many arechetypes. These all help us to create
clear differences in our (improvisational) dance.

We will work with imagery from Hijikata, well known
archetypes, and our own images. In the end we hope
to dance our own dance, straight from the soul.

THE LAST of a series of workshops in Amsterdam by
dancer/vocalist Kristien Sonnevijlle, a delicious
blend of subbody butoh (www.subbody.net), voice
work, bodywork, instant composition and a hint of
contact improvisation.

A letter from Isabelle

An old student Isabelle introduces us interesting pictures.
It is a good suggestion of Abyss; bottomless depth.
There are no up no down, no inside/outside, no self/others, no good/bad. It is the non-dual and multi-dimenssional realm. Hijikata called it "Jinketsu (=humanhole)" . It is completely discombobulation. We need to learn how to travel there safely without fear.
Thank you Isa!


 Dear Lee...

short message..
a friend linked me an article about this Danish brain scientist when I was in Joels place in Cambodia, at a very synchronized moment for me.
It kept popping up in my mind, so I checked it again. He is indeed very clear and good himself and has produced very good science
Here I share a link to you to his book from 2012, about how meditation and other practices is developing a "new" brain in humans, that is both making us more clear and focused but more important better human, kore compassionate with a higher morale.
Maybe it is interesting for your work as well.

'A mirage of human' Noah

A piece of poetry was delivered from Noah (2011-2012 Subbody school student).
It's what was delivered from an Abyss of Life that a hard disease progresses in the body. He wants to go to the Himalayas, but the body seems not to allow it.
We share it with his subbody butoh 2011-2012.
Even remote, Life is resonating beyond time-space.


Dear Lee,

An automaton formation of life has hammered its nails of social convention deep into the skin of my being. I am sore at the level of the flesh and find a gradient of disquiet silent growing inside. When the collapse of body happens, what will tumble, will rot and feed a new potential form of life.

When I was dancing sub-body, you taught me the importance of diversity. The diversity of movement, the diversity of silence, the diversity of life and death. I wanted to let you know that you have cast a hand full of seeds into the fallow grounds of my being. Some died, some rot, others germinated and some grew strong and fast.

Looking back I may finally understand the importance of what you taught me. It took a while to grow, since the watering of my understanding was but a mirage of human.

Now, the ground is breaking, an urge is stirring, silently creeping across the barren potential landscapes, for a new evolution of growth, freely and uninhibited by the monocultural devices which deform so many of us into automatons.
I continue to dance, soon I will bring it to the world again.

Here is poem from inside, my dance with words continues:

Time to look at my face took my eyes beneath the skin, resting on my bone fissure containing what seems to be the house of my consciousness.
Pressing with the tips of my fingers beyond the mold of this life, discovering a youth battled age.
Oh you crazy monster devoid of thought too pensive to celebrate the beauty of each kill you induce. Subject to murder you loose your senses in a pool of blood, of which the daisies who toil not take to roots the dance of life.
Here you are young, here you are beautiful, here you are.
Again and again one returns to you, the silver reflection garbed by light, the person in the mirror, a you you love or loath dependable on the time in which the light cuts your image.
You beautiful monster breathing air, succulent god of carbon, destiny is your religion. You the dancing fool behind your face, the mad poet in your heart stabbing sardonically with sorrow and joy. Yes you, you the eyes behind these words.
Its all and only about you.

Thank you for everything. Most importantly thank you for the sacrifice of your persona in the creation and exploration of resonance through life diversity.
Love,
Noah

Deep*blue*pacific... dancing within the sounds of dolphins!
Azul*pacifico*profundo...Danzando entre cantos de delfines!

As far as I know, pillar continues dancing under the water for more than eight years.
She danced in the Indian Ocean, in the Atlantic, in the Mediterranean, danced even in water of bathtub or pool of Subbody School Himalaya.
Now she is dancing in the Pacific Ocean.
For her life, there is a need to solve the mystery between the ocean ecstacy in the amunio fluid world, and the break by cesarean section.
For me as a swimmer spent the time more than half of life, underwater dance of the pillar is also a dream of mine.
Her work of this year has been raised to the highest degree of perfection which I have ever seen. Transparent dance is coming out as much as dolphins.
Congratulations, pillar.
Continuing is the power.

Subbody Experience!
One day workshop with Gadu


Tuesday, March 25 at 6:15pm
Grain Belt Studios #201, 79 13th Ave. NE,
Minneapolis, 55413

Dear Friends,
8 week Subbody Resonance Butoh workshop has ended and I had wonderful time resonating with new and
familiar Subbodies.
I would like to invite you to join me next Tuesday for Subbody Experience! One Day Workshop with Gadu
If you haven’t experienced Subbody Butoh, this is a wonderful opportunity to try out.
You don’t need any movement training or experience.
Just come as you are. Be ready to move.
I usually explain Subbody Butoh is like a Movement Meditation. People has been dancing since the
ancient days. We called it trance or shamanism.
It sound mystical, but it isn’t so difficult. All we have to do is to let go of our daily consciousness
and let our subconscious connect to energy around us.
Anyone can experience it!
Come and Experience RESONANCE!!!

Moving Meditation Workshop  
by Syv


3 years ago yesterday,Tohoku (north Japan) was hit by an earthquake and a tsunami.
I was walking in the snowy ricefields and was thinking of all the people who had died and of those who survived, of those whose body has not been found yet, of those who still live in shelters, of those who commit suicide out of despair.
i was thinking -how small and vulnerable we human beings are and how often we forget it.
and i was in awe at how Nature and people strive for life, no matter what.

Other disasters will happen again indeed, what do we learn from them?

We all would like to be calmer, happier, to have less stress and enjoy our life.
Meditation helps to achieve this. But it is sometimes difficult to find time in our busy life to stop to meditate. Sitting and watching our mind is not always easy either.
Meditation does not need to be hard!
If we become aware of our movement, our breath, our actions, then our daily life becomes a meditation. It is that simple
Come and try simple and effective methods to release stress and enjoy our moving body.

Garbha Bhu_Ankur

Dear lee,

Three months in delhi have deepened my experience of life so much, i am now dying to come to school and dive..my life is feeling so happy to be coming back to dharamsala. I am seeing how much i need to work to really dance my life..it is such a subtle process, and it requires practice. This is one of big realizations for me, that the most important thing is to practice, everyday. Since i have not been a dancer in my life, exploring and expressing through body doesnt come naturally to me. So many days in delhi i couldn't dance, only conditioned everyday, my ego thought that is sufficient. But my connection with my body is weak, and only conditioning doesn't help.
After the performances i understood that i must dance everyday, any time i find, otherwise i get into my head and out of my body. The trappings of ego are so subtle, it requires constant vigilance.. Recently i realized how valuable the time i spend in school really is, how and more importantly, why it is so crucial to listen to one's life. And i understood why talking in school is not encouraged.. i saw how much ego there is in my dance, in my life, and how it is the source of all the suffering, i see how one cannot really dance or experience life without love, and no love is true when it comes from a limited/distorted perception of self.. and how practice is required to rise above our selves, so that one can love, and dance. Nothing in life is real, till its done with love..and to love i must see transparently.
It is through practicing taking off human that i am becoming more human.. i am so grateful for this process and to life, to be able to reconnect with the paradise that i had lost sight of, as 'i' grew up.. Thank you lee!

See you soon.

'Call of Twilight', 'Sumire' at Zorba the Buddha

Lee,
In the last two months, my intellectual thinking had become very active. I am so glad that Sumire happened. I hit my bottom. I am now walking my edge and learnt a simple lesson, all over again; Stop thinking, Listen to your life.
It was only when I decided to dive into the abyss, did I really feel my fears. Sitting there in hiding. I am so glad that I touched them. That I feel them. It is scary to be in a place where you cannot touch your fears, where they seem to be so deeply buried that you feel dull and lazy to even look for them.
Call of Twilight has uncovered a deep frozen place. It has taken me three years to come here. I have found a way.

Subtle shivering of a leaf.

Description

You, me, dance?

Yes?
Thank you!
Can I become...
the moustache of your great great great grandfather
the spirit that tickles between the toes
inside your ears
whispering in a language us both unknown
a love song a lullaby a last breath an endless cry

i would love you to dance
what draws me towards the future
what pushes me back into the past
the earth I melt into
a cloud that lifts me up
my voice when it cracks
my back grown old and mouldy
shall we
twist
squeeze
pauze
reverse
shake
hold
rebuild
kill and adore each other without even meeting by skin?
Oh yesss, let's twist again! Let's give a twist to our concept of a duet. Two humans dancing. Join this journey of meditation, stretching & unfolding what our body is holding onto and listening, deeper and deeper. After finding our own organic dance, we find each other. Not as human, but as many different aspects of life, ever changing and influencing each other into unknown worlds.

This workshop is part of a series of workshops by dancer/vocalist Kristien Sonnevijlle, a delicious blend of subbody butoh (www.subbody.net), voice work, bodywork, instant composition and a hint of contact improvisation.

Honza changed his name to <Yubi no Kuma (Finger Bear)> during the workshop. It is match for him as a shamanic trickster.

'For you, My Dove- My Desire is your Dream, and I am' Isabelle and Bern cobody

Isabelle is an old student of 2011. Suddenly, she joined in the worksop. On the second day, she started crying during the self research. She said her important friend died last year, and she felt gulty that she could not help him. I adviced her to find safe distance to such a recent accident and to wait till the Life will be ready to dance it. But, her subbody did not want to follow the advice. It is normal tendency of subbody. Also, my subbody used not to follow any other's advice. She struggled everyday with continuing try and destroy.
Final day, she has lost any motiv to dance and said to cancel her performance. I just suggest to do enough conditioning.
We waited till night, her subbody=cobody has been recovered, and so diverse cobodies were born, though we did not practice of cobody during the workshop. All participants resonated deeply with her sadness and difficulties.
It was amazing Life Resonance like a miracle that I have never seen.

 Marika


'Sydanrumpu (My Heart Drum)' Marika

Marika is an visual artist, for her to dance alone is the first time. At first tirial, she could not complete it, because she put many vidual ideas into her piece, but body could not follow it. I gave an advice to stop thinking, and have an enough conditioning before dance. At the second trial, she spend over one hour for conditioning by alone in the dark room. And she got surprising condition to let her subbody birth. In the dark room, she was covered by many brankets, and the others sit around the brankets with sharing breathing sounds and subtle sway with branket. It was ideal condition like a warm womb for the birth of first subbody. All participants became midwife for the birth of Marika's subbody. So diverse subbody=cobodies came out. Also all cobody resonate her Life that is going to overcome the hardship of the birth. A miracle that all became one Life was realized. She danced almost in the darkness, and there are no pictures, though she took all of pictures in Bern. It is pity, but always picture is like this. Camera cannot catch the live Life Resonance. Only Life can resonate with all qualia.
Thank you Marika, and cobody!

'Twilight in the Mist' Mirjan and Bern cobody

Mirjan danced this piece three times. At first improvisation, second times made a structure and third time on the last day, she trid to integrate all subbody=cobody, and added various subbody=cobody with jumpinf wildly. So, with repeating a subbody, it can grow up and deppen the choreograph gradually. Mirjan, please continue it. Someday the subbody become your intimate friend and wise which can help you.

 Flavia


'Guarda Che Luna' Flavia and Sten


Flavia danced this piece three times. At first by alone, she danced with a piano. Second time asked Sten as a pianist. And the third time, she developed it to a rich duet with Sten. During the process also many different inner herselves came out from proto creature, baby, curious girl, sexy lady and so on to strong witch, and finally she integrated all of them as a piece with ten different subbody=cobodies. Hope to deepen it to a long piece which can dance your whole Life.

 Pnina


'Samson’ Pnina and Bern cobody

Pnina who retired university professor from Israel, asked me, "I have been trapped by mother complex for many years, how should I dance it?", in the middle of self reseach.
I adviced her, "Don't force yourself to do such a large problem directly.
You can wait until your whole Life is ready. I recommend you to try to dance smaller qualia at each part of body."

Pnina is 65-year-old same with me. I have also been bound by dead mother as well. I have attempted to dance the mother this twenty years, but have not been successful yet.
I'm going to continue the quest until about 70-years old slowly.
Last day, Pnina danced with the body bondage . Yes! It is good to start with trapped stiffness such a partial part.
Such qualia are all connected and resonated in the darkness of body, the qualia of mother complex also are resonating. When we continue dancing it, the complexed qualia become easier to loosen a little bit. The loosen enough , when the entangled qualia begins to resonate each other in darkness of the body. It's the chance to unfold the multi-dimensional entanglement by <Reverse twist>.

Pnina send me a warm letter


 

Dear Lee
I had participated in your workshop (Bern 2014). It was a very special time for me. You had been a tunnel through which your many ideas spread out to the universe.

I was watching you through my senses.

I realized that although I am 65 years old I can dance Butoh, because the dance is eternal.

The dance based on listening to the body and his demands.

I don’t need to show great physical abilities.

This unique dance takes all the gestures, formatted patterns, and our masks. All that forms are feeding the ego. According to your workshop I understood that Butoh is an inner movement that demand to be true to the self and to communicate with all the voices and pictures that are woven in the body and in the universe, therefore if I am true to myself I will be able to dance.

From the first day, you told us to be quiet, to listen to our body.

I was lecturing in university for almost 30 years.

To lecture means to speak a lot.

I was amazed to be quiet and to recognize the power of stillness and quietness.

When I am creating the "resonance" I can find my own "qualia". New voices, new flavors are coming from my body.

I feel as if I am reborn.

Through your method: Jo-Ha-Kyu I can meet and visit some hidden places, some memories that are opening little by little in my soul.

I try to repeat every day some exercises that you had shown to us. I feel that my senses are developing and I can enjoy my doing more clearly.

Lee, your method of teaching was very unique.

I can still hear your voice clearly. I know that I have to work hard to achieve my goal in life, but every journey begins with the first step.

Master Lee, you, was my first step.

Thank you from my heart.

All the best.

I hope to meet you in August in Varsha .

Pnina Feller.

Jerusalem, Israel.

 Philine


'Womb-Ancient Mother Earth'
Philine and cobody


In the middle of Bern workshop, philine said "I cannot move because of big pain inside". She has her own deep trauma and the pain qualia bound her. I gave subtle suggestion, "Please find safe distance to the pain qualia, and wait for the time you are ready to dance it". She tried conditioning herself, and final week she created a deep dance to change the pain to her creation. All of us were moved deeply. Later we knew that she has been waiting for 16 years, and it was the best timing.

'Sunday Morning Path' Sten

The last day of the two weeks workshop in Swiss, Bern, each participant danced to find a favorite location in and out of the dormitory. Sten began to dance on the corner of tied to the corner of the wall of the cafeteria. He is tall and it's a cramped posture neck bends lodged in ceiling head. Tall people have continued to feel the pressure that his head has been held down by something all the time. I noticed that this is his specific bottom body, not only the bebding posture. It was a new discovery.

Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop


Dear Friends, 
Subbody Resonance Butoh Workshop will start in one week. 
I would like to invite all of you to experience Subbody Resonance, but I understand that many of you are not familiar with this movement art form. Here is some frequently asked questions: 

What is Subbody? - Subbody stands for “Subconscious Body”
What is Subbody Method? - Subbody Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Buoth practitioner. Subbody Method is like a movement meditation. Through various conditioning techniques, we go deep into our bodies to experience subtle sensations. Then we express these sensations through movements. Because we work with each individual experience, whatever the movement that manifest is your own. 
Do I have to be a dancer or be experienced in movement art forms? - NO! You don’t have to be a dancer or don’t have to have any experience at all. Actually it is better not to have any experiences. Dancers tend to have pre-conceived notions about movements and certain movements are ingrained into their bodies through their trainings. I speak from my own experience. The process of Subbody Method is “unlearning”  the all the habits of our body, so our bodies can express freely, so less habits in our body the better. 
What do we do in the workshop and why is it three hours? - In order to calm down our daily-consciousness and access to Subbody, we need to take it very very slow. The first 1hr to 1.5hr of workshop is conditioning, slow gentle movements that guide you to relaxed, meditative states. Then we learn the ways to access to different part of our body and mind to explore. You will be surprised how fast the time passes when you are in Subbody mode. 
What is Resonance? - Subbody Method is a group process. Like an orchestra, we play off of each others’ energy and creation. Once you experience this resonance, you will realize that you are resonating being. Your energy is resonating with everything in the universe. And the resonance is the creative force. 
What is Butoh? - Butoh is a contemporary Japanese performance art form. It began in late 1950’s. There are so many different types of Butoh and Subbody Butoh is just one of them. There are some general characteristic of Butoh, but they aren’t important. The reason we call this Subbody Butoh is that we resonate with the intention of the Butoh founder Tatsumi Hijikata, who explored the new expression of a human body. 
Well, I am sure there are more questions and I am happy to answer them. 
Please email me if you have any other questions and Sign Up Soon!!!
