Thank you so much for supporting Charity
Healing for Children in Fukushima!

On July 13th, Gadu delivered the donation (total of 427,000JPY) to Shinentai office in Osaka, Japan. He met with Shinentai staff, Ms. Fujii and Ms. Natsumura, and discussed the issues of relocating Fukushima families to safer areas. After the discussion, it became clear that we need to continue to support Shinentai and their goal of protecting children who have been affected by radiation in Fukushima and surrounding area.

I had a wonderful meeting with Yumi san and Fujii san at Shinentai office. We raised 427000 yen in the end. I will continue to support this organization because they are committed to saving children in Fukushima!!!



"Cichy Dom" Kaska and Poland Cobody

I am sending you link to short film from my project with trauma people in Poland.
It was beautyfull subbody resonance process.
for some of them it was really big change on their work/life path.
The way I was working with them was base totally on trust to the space by resonance with our limitations.




One Day Butoh Workshop with Gadu

What is Subbody Butoh?
This video will explain you. (from MNOriginal)
( or try https://youtu.be/PdvFWVcnFI8)

Web extra: https://youtu.be/U4gIPkxNrvY

This workshop is for people who want to experience Subbody Butoh.

Subbody Butoh Method was developed by Rhizome Lee, a Japanese Butoh practitioner in Dharamsala, India. “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.
Come and experience the power of Resonance!

When: Saturday July 25th, 10:00 am - 1:00pm

Where: Heart of Tao Resonance Art, 2322 Garfield St. NE, Minneapolis 55418

Tuition: $25

Subbody Butoh Revisited

Exactly 2 years ago I was in a dance festival in Dharamsala, Indian Himalayas, where Rhizome Lee created his ‘Subbody Butoh School’. I went there with a longing to embracing everything in (life &) dance, not only the so called beautiful.

I spent three seasons of dancing in garbage, the hot spring bath of a Hindu temple, a festival for Tibetan refugee children. ‘Resonance’ was the magic word, with everyone and everything. Covered in ashes, mud, rainbow colours and rags I melted into the environment until there was just ONE...

Since coming back in Holland july 2013 I have been integrating this dance into a more holistic movement vocabulary, as even what is intended to accept everything becomes a specific style when danced intensively by a small group of people in a dance studio in the mountains.

This week I revisit the work we did at The Subbody Butoh School, Himalaya

- ‘conditioning’

- different butoh ‘walks’

- work with texts (scores) written by Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of butoh

- Group movement, contaminating each other with movement qualities.

- Discovering ‘Subbodies’, the different beings hiding in our body and memory until they are allowed out.

Even if it is a short time, let’s taste our ‘blood of dance’, that which needs to be danced to survive...

" In alter Zeit war der Tänzer, mehr oder weniger, Magier oder Medizinmann. Die Funktion des Tänzers hat sich inzwischen vollkommen geändert. Der Tanz ist das Objekt künstlerischer Beurteilung geworden. Für mich setzt der Tanz nicht eine Berufung zum Tänzer voraus. Ich tanze. Die anderen auch. Ich möchte das Etwas von dem weiter lebt, was die Tänzer in den früheren Epochen ausgezeichnet hat. "

Performance ”Hate”
I am performing a piece called "HATE" for Queertopia 10th Anniversary Show from June 24th - 27th at Intermedia Arts.
Our community has suffered so much anger and hate for many years. Time is changing and more people are supporting Queer community. It is time to let go of the energy of hate that we stored in ourselves and transform it to happiness, joy and peacefulness. This performance/installation piece is my offering to the transformation process.
I hope to see you there!

Butoh Dance Reserch

July 2-5
Felsenhaus Sensegraben, near Berne, Swiss

Hey you

I'm back her since one week, but my soul / subbody stays with you and I begin to miss the real contact with you and I wish to be with you at the butoh festival.
Last monday I started to work in the office, what a differnt world!
It's also quit difficult to share the butoh experiences with my friends: they don't know this world and for most of them it seems quit strange.

But anyway I keep going on with butoh here arond in the nature and also in my creative studio.
And in the beginning of July I go to a butoh workshop in a beautiful place in the nature near from here.

Wish you a great time and many magic moments

Summergreatings and warm hugs

 'Milking Widows' Pamela and cobody

 Last year, we did not have time to edit videos of 9th Butoh festival, because we started the India Rhizoming tour for three months after the festival immediately.
Now we started editting them gradually, at first we deliver a deep piece of Pamela. She performed this piece again in April at her place. It must be growing with deepening.
Please enjoy it.


Oh Dear Lee, Once again deep resonance, I just finished an hour ago a performance in Mexico City. I thought strong subbody of milking widow was gone but I am surprised it is still dancing with novel movements, everytime more and more new findings and new worlds. it doesn't end. People are resonating deeply.
I have video too I need to edit this performance and last as well... I send you a very warm hug and miss all of you guys!
I hope I can send them soon..xoxo
all my love...




Thank you for each of you who came last night, and for sharing my breath, my pauses and my dance.

Charity Healing forChildren in Fukushima

We already have raised $1693 so far! We have reached 56% of our goal of $3000! We cannot slow down now! Please come to receive healing this Saturday or consider giving to help children in Fukushima!!!

Charity Healing for Children in Fukushima

Saturdays 1:00 - 5:00 pm starting on March 14th
at Heart of Tao Resonance Art

One of the goals for Heart of Tao Resonance Art is to create a better future for others. We would like to give our love and support to those in need anywhere in the world.

It has been 4 years since the devastating earthquake hit the Tohoku area of Japan and the subsequent collapse of a nuclear reactor in Fukushima. Many children in Fukushima are still living in areas that are contaminated by radiation.

There are efforts to relocate children temporary to the other areas of Japan, so their bodies can heal from the radiation. There were studies done in the communities affected by the Chelnobyl disaster and relocating children even for a short time will reduce the effect of the radiation in long term. These NPOs are not funded by the Japanese government and they need our help!

Our goal is to raise $3000 by July to support the organizations that help relocating children in Fukushima. In July, Gadu will personally deliver the funds to the organizations.

Starting March 14th, we are offering Charity Healing for Children in Fukushima every Saturday 1:00 - 5:00 pm. Please come and receive Shiatsu, Qigong or Qi~ssage to release your pain and stress. You will feel better and you will help children in Fukushima too!
Contact Us to make an appointment.

100% of proceeds from Charity Healing will go toward supporting children in Fukushima. See below for more detail.

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.

Hi Lee,

I’ve been missing every bit of school. Delhi is impossible to achieve deep resonance, i’m failing as a student of yours to resonate with the different quailas in the city. Please tell me what to do

Here are some pictures of my performance from tattapani, it would be great if you could put them up on Facebook and website. This was a start for me, i want a constant reminder of it so I can continue to practice at home.

What is Butoh? Butoh began in 1959 Japan through the work of Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. Although rooted in performance art, it evades definition. Butoh, dance step, is a sway between Life and Death. It is creation, rising out of the darkness with each breath. A raw expression of Spirit in flesh, transcending traditional ideas of beauty.

About the Facilitator:
Odile Nicole works as a teaching artist. For fifteen years she has explored innovative Theatre, Physical Performance, Butoh dance theatre and deep contemplative practice. In 2010, she studied, performed and began teaching at the Subbody Butoh School in the Himalayas before relocating to New Orleans. She continues her practice as performer and educator, integrating mystical principles into the creative arts
