What is the deepening of butoh?

It is simple to be able to see that
1. How fine segmenting of dancing place of body is able to see?
2. How much different invisible demensions is he resonating with?
3. How much is he bocoming transparent without conscious intension?

I am so happy to see that old student's dance is deepened to the transparency.

Thank you Santeri.
Please keep deepnening!

Let's live as the four billion years old Life!

Thank you for a lot of celebration.
Now, I am growing from my own personal life to nobody as the four billion years old Life wth all beings on the earth little by little.
Toward such a horizon as it doesn't matter whether being oneself, or not being oneself.
I am always working desperately to become so, though my ego and self is so strong to disturb it.
We recieved so rich Qualia from Life and we create so little thing, but we can return it to the Life to increase the resonance patterns of Life richer a little bit.
I recommend this transforming way to become Life for all my friends.
The activities of Subbody school and world resonance tour are one of them.

A Winter that Rob Was

Three years ago, the winter we danced at the various places in Rotterdam with Rob.
Rob, you were always supporting other's dance from the behind.
I learned a lot from you, and now also I am dancing behind, under or between the people as you.
Rob has gone the journey yesterday.
Rob, sleep in peace..........

Let's dance together in the other world, near future.

Dear Lee;

I started this project with the intention of bringing the lost memories feelings movements back to awareness.
A season for all those things buried under skin to relive through dance and be a part of my life again.
I work alone in my apartment, shoot the pictures myself; very private process and i feel this is the only way
to realize this project.

I will keep on sharing images and info
I really appreciate your interest

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!

This fundraiser support Shinentai (www.shinentai.net) in Osaka, Japan. Since 2011, they have been tirelessly supporting families in Fukushima to relocate for the safety of the children.

Our goal is to raise $3000 by November 2016!

We are offering Charity Healing for Children in Fukushima one Friday a month 3:00 - 7:00 pm. Please come and receive Qiatsu, Qigong or Qi~ssage to release your pain and stress. You can also join Group Healing Circle to learn Spring Forest Qigong Healing Movements and Meditations. You will feel better and you will help children in Fukushima too!

Contact Us or call 612-703-7501 to make an appointment.

Dancing in the shadows

How an obscure Japanese dance form has found a home in a remote village in Himachal Pradesh.

Eyes searching for something, their bodies spare and painted white, some with clothes that seemed blood-stained, others naked, the students float in from different directions. Behind them, their teacher’s words soar, “Imagine you’re liquid, flow, flow in every direction, flow effortlessly.” In the darkness of the night, atop a hill near Lakagot village in Himachal Pradesh, they whirled around in stark, hyper-controlled movements, like people possessed, their eerie sounds of ululation breaking the stillness of the night.
It wasn’t a session of black magic in progress, though. These were students at the Subbody Resonance Butoh Himalaya, a dance academy started in 2005 by 60-year-old Rhizome Lee, which teaches butoh, a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a diverse range techniques and movements.

After having travelled to various places, Lee chose this quiet place in Jogibara village, close to McLeodganj, and set up the school. Now, it offers long-term courses and workshops.“Butoh is the most honest dance form. It defines you. It is about resonating with yourself and your surroundings. It is about putting your ego aside. You don’t move, something moves you,” says Jaime Martinez, a Spaniard in his early thirties, who took a course in Lee’s school earlier this year.

Butoh takes inspiration from dark themes such as natural disasters, disease and war. The central concept of butoh is to avert fixity and accept one’s self in its entirety — the body and its many crises. Lee, a butoh dancer for over four decades, says, “It is like meditation. We research inside, bring out our weaknesses, stop thinking and enter a subconscious world. The essence of butoh is resonance. In classical meditation, you don’t move, and try to detach yourself. Here, we achieve detachment by moving our body. We take off the superficial mask we wear for the world and dance for anything in the universe.”
When Lee was in university in Kyoto in Japan, Hijikata’s group came to perform there. Lee was struck by the dichotomy it offered and was keen to take it up. But he was married already and had just become a father. He needed a job and a steady livelihood. He waited 25 years, painstakingly putting together savings that would help him pursue his dream some day. Once his son joined work, Lee finally decided to go back to butoh.
Under Lee’s careful guidance, students from all around the world come to learn and practise butoh in this remote hill station. There are not many takers in India — in all these years, there have been less than 10 Indian students at his school, but it enjoys a steady popularity among Europeans and Asians outside the subcontinent. Lee lives on the first floor, a cosy Japanese style living area and there are rooms for short-stay students on the top floor.

Time for some Butoh. (Photo: Cheena Kapoor)

During the course of their workshops, the students are made to perform for the public every Friday, in school premises or out on the streets. In one such performance, the dancers performed on a garbage patch on the streets, and received mixed reactions from the locals. Many villagers, who were unaware of the form, did not appreciate the ugliness it projected or the starkness it entailed.
Gio Dust, 39, who now calls herself Satiji, moved to McLeodganj from South Korea about four years ago, learned the art form and now gives private classes. She says, “Our body has a lot of memories and it wants to perform them.”
In her opinion, a butoh dancer resonates with the environment. Each performance is affected by the surroundings, the presence or absence of an audience, weather and mood. When she moves, Satiji says she tries to detach herself from the world around her and delve deep into herself. “Butoh, for me, is an alternative way of communication. I communicate those emotions for which I’m short of words,” she says.
In his book, The Intensity of Nothingness, well-known butoh dancer Iwana Masaki says, “I have never heard of a butoh dancer entering a competition. Every butoh performance itself is an ultimate expression; there is no, and cannot be, second or third places. If butoh dancers were content with less than the ultimate, they would not be actually dancing butoh, for real butoh, like real life itself, cannot be given rankings”.
