Europe Life Resonance Butoh
tour (with Gio)


For Europe tour,

We fixed the date in Hungary only with Tamas. (First week of july)

Greece is delayed to Autumn.

So now I'm contacting for new organizing to cover flight cost to Europe at least.

Also I want to make deep collaboration in Hungary staying enough days.

So I'm looking for fund in Korea to make travel cost.



I began to contact with Chiara to make butoh residency camp for summer.

And checking more possibilities in Europe. I will update soon. If you have recommendation for me. would be nice.

I saw Adam's schedule. It's great, very active.

For me, at first I thought only 2~3 places. Hungary, Greece and probably Iceland.

To make a bit long creation process at each place.

But now Instead of Greece, I began to find another place.

Puppet...


From our duet with Leire as a part of Nabila's cobody...

About an individual's struggle to convince himself that he is free, although he has already been turned into a puppet through social conditionings.

Without falling into the trap of single dimensioned narratives of conventional performing arts where the facial expression is the center; lets read the contrast between the lost eyes, the ghost of a smile in the cheeks and the vomiting image of the mouth and the soft & carefree suggestion of the right hand.
Instead of using the body as a vehicle to express a single emotion or a thought; i prefer an understanding of the body as a multi dimensional performance space where multiple body/mind centers experience different processes simultaneously.

Europe Life Resonance Butoh
Greece-Hungary tour


Dear Lee

Me, slowly moving to India to find space in south india.

Thanks for reservation next May course for me. I will do that. In india, i can continue the summer project.

For Europe, Adam’s activity sounds very good!
I confirmed to go to Greece and Hungary handicapped workshop and probably workshop with judit also.
For this two workshops, I would like to continue. I applied some fund to make travel cost for this two workshop.

Adam can contact any other organizer in Europe, Spain, Italy, Holland etc. Or with Adam, we can organize bigger subbody gathering and workshop in Europe together. It can be kind of festival or camp and more organized performance.

I think Pit will join at Switzerland. We can suggest to Italy with camp. Or in Spain with festival.

Next week I will be able to have own time and can communicate more idea.
Give me any idea back for this.
Then i will write you more detail.

Hope to see you soon.

Europe Life Resonance Butoh
Germany-Spain tour


Hello Butoh lovers, I am beginning the planning stage for the Europe Life Resonance Butoh Tour for summer 2019. Two locations I already know I will hit are Spain and Germany. If you are interested in hosting an information-packed Butoh intensive, jump on this opportunity. I'm no stranger to showing stuff to people as I recently found I have over 400 hours of Butoh instructing/guiding experience. 😵 Also, for those who do not know already, check out the free virtual Shadowbody Butoh Manual available here: http://manual.shadowbody.com. And for workshop information, see http://workshop.shadowbody.com. Hope to see some of you!

2019 is going to be a very busy year! It begins in Sri Lanka renewing my visa for India. Then the Winter India Life Resonance Butoh Tour continues till the end of February/beginning of March (there are still available time slots). After, I return to the Subbody school to help guide. Around the end of May, we have the Europe Life Resonance Butoh Tour, which I am opening up the planning stage for. Two locations I already know I will hit are Spain and Germany. Subbody guide Gio JU will also be hitting others.

If you are interested in hosting an information-packed Butoh intensive, jump on this opportunity. After Europe, it looks like USA in late Summer or early Fall. So I can pick up some dates there as well. For me, former long term Subbody students are granted access to any India or Europe Butoh workshop free of charge. For workshop information, see http://workshop.shadowbody.com. And if you haven't seen it already, definitely check out the free virtual Shadowbody Butoh Manual available here: http://manual.shadowbody.com.

Remodeling Subbody 2019

The picture attached is what we talked about at the midwife meeting yesterday.
Take a look and if anything comes to mind that can be added to this,
do add.
I am using the FreeMind mind-mapping software to make these,
so the FreeMind file is also attached.
FreeMind is a free software found on google.
Very useful for organizing things.

Becoming-Nettle
Butoh Performance With Fresh Stinging Nettles

This performance is an homage to the stinging nettle. Stinging nettles have been a fascination of mine for over a year, but it has only been a month now since I really started adopting it as a plant teacher. I have not only been stinging myself (increasing the amount gradually), but have also been making tea from the leaves. My fascination with this plant is multi-faceted and multi-themed. To keep it short, the nettle is a power medicine as well as a rich nutrient. It has been used as a muscle/joint medicine as well as a banishing plant in shamanism (via stinging the subject). Like bee shamanism, I feel it can also serve as a potent form of acupuncture. This performance took place at the Subbody Butoh School in Dharamsala, India. The nettles were harvested 2 hours prior to the performance.

Die and die one more time die

"I would like to make the dead gestures inside my body die one more time and make the dead themselves dead again. I would like to have a person who has already died die over and over inside my body. I may not know death, but it knows me.” - Tatsumi Hijikata


I never looked too closely into this quote until recently, and feel I know exactly where Hijikata was coming from. The point of his Ankoku Butoh was to shed the skin of human domestication, following the lines of Antonin Artaud's body without organs. We turn the skin inside out, creating an endlessly shifting, multidimensional living body because the body envelops the all.

Hijikata already saw everybody as dead. He saw domesticated humans with their everyday routine, nationality, vocation, ethnicity, gender, ability, etc, and he wanted out of this, wanted something real and raw (what Artaud meant by cruelty) and so was in a perpetual state of dying from these corpses of structure that keep us from our infinite storehouse of life creation.

India Butoh Scholarship Program

Reaching Out to Talent in India

This fundraiser known as the India Life Resonance Art Butoh Scholarship Program will give talented economically-challenged Indian nationals the ability to study the Subbody Method at the Subbody Butoh School.

The school has existed since 16 years and brings creators from all around the world. The facility contains two dance floors, an amphitheater, and a beautiful view of the Himalayan mountains.

What is butoh?

Butoh began as a 60s Japanese rebellious dance theater that stretched the definition of dance, theater, and beauty. Now there is certainly international curiosity due to its psychological, improvisational, and even shamanic elements.

Subbody Butoh School History

The story behind Subbody in the Himalayas goes back 20 years. Before then, Rhizome Lee (Japan-based) had been touring much, but was unsatisfied with the degree of research he was engaging in. A thought crossed his mind that he needed a perfect location in the world to engage in serious study of butoh based in Hijikata's method. The point was not to copy Hijikata but to go underneath the artist in order to discover his endless creativity.

It took 7 years later in Dharamsala, India for Lee to complete the school built specifically for the creation process of butoh. The building has been up 13 years, and Lee is still engaged in endless research. This is not a place to dip your feet in. This is a place to transform your entire life to butoh. Exactly what Hijikata expected of a butoh dancer. All or nothing.

In “Dehumanized Body: India 2018”, Priyadarshini Ohol combines found footage from social media, in videoButoh performances, sound, text, objects of dehumanization, space, mirrors, the artist’s body, the audienceon location& video documentation of the daily interactive live art, to present aself-evident picture of the violent dehumanized nation we live in.

 

Ohol sources video documentationpredominantly shot in first person by people on social media sometimes from those who are less than a degree away. This footage isof the continuous ongoing violent dehumanization by individuals and the state. She projects this insider’s view of the truth on large screens juxtaposed with Butoh performances made with the realisation of how we persecute survivor castes and tribes, deny them justice and then further demonize the oppressed by placing blame on them. This is violent by design and denies them humanity.

 

In the Live Butoh Performances, shechannels these violent surroundings and times through her body, sometimes visibly recreating scenes and progressively reducing her humanity. into a current cultural commentary.She presents the viewer an interaction with objectshistorically used to dehumanize in the subcontinent by performing actions recommended in the Manusmriti, context cards of excerpts from the Manusmriti, her dehumanized body, and a mirror. The Manusmriti is the handbook of laws for brahmin supremacy - the ideology supplied to us today as "Hindutva."

She is asking the viewer, "If this is your ideal and these are the social laws you want to live by, why don't YOU start with ME? Do what you can with the objects to my body. Can you be as inhumane as this lawbook asks you to be and can you dehumanize me to that extent? Do it and then go and look at yourself in the mirror. Is this who you want to be and is this the world you want to build?"

 

The multimedia installation [social media videos, sound, artist’s voice, sound art, performance art, everyday objects, several live collaborations, text] is artivism.The viewer hasthe opportunity to explore their inner world, do away with illusions and re-examine the part they play in society.

In "The Rape of Badaun and The Murder of Rohith Vemula" video, she shows real footage with how Badaun affected her as an artist. The video alsochronicles a news channel clip of Sushma Swaraj denying Rohith’s identity of being a Dalitwhich is juxtaposed with #RohithVemula's assertion in a video interview that he is a Dalit. Who will you believed and why?

On Day 2, a man in a saffron kurta, yelled at the screen in Bangla "ROHITH WAS NOT A DALIT. ROHITH COMMITTED SUICIDE." This part of the AV is the artist’s commentary on the “notadalit” denial of identity tactic repeatedly used by the ruling government to deny justice to persecuted Dalits, by scuttling support and not implementing legal provisions. They did the same thing in Badaun.

The video in the installation of "The Attack on Bhima Koregoan" directly brings to the public on the ground footage of what really happened in BhimaKoregaon . While the government is spreading propaganda about Ambedkarites being anti-national, violent or Maoists, mainstream news demonized them and added to the propaganda by characterizing them as the ones to start the violence and unrest. The video installation directly shows the planning, attack, on the ground rioting, stoning, burning, bombing by saffron flag bearing brahmin supremacists on the Ambedkarite crowd that gathers every year at Bhima Koregaon to pay homage.

 

In keeping with the spirit of an artist who responds to the times, the work is meant to force an acknowledgement of how violent a society we are without recourse to superficial delusions of grandeur, to show reality, to present a mirror,to generate questions and evoke a response for change.

 

Oholcontends that mass scale othering and dehumanization is in the moral fabric of the people of the subcontinent because of extended implementation of the casteist social structure and laws rooted in brahmin supremacy. The resultant ongoing violence in this part of the world has caused the largest genocide of an otherized population for the longest period in recorded history, prolific enough to become invisible. That this genocide is still on today is a reality often wilfully denied or ignored withproclamations of economic, religious, culturalormoral superiority.

 

Through the installation Ohol challenges the viewer to deny thereality she inhabits. She invades sanitized spaces with recreations and questions about the ideologies being championed as the ideal which our nascent democracy attempts to leave behind.“Why should spaces meant to generate debate, inhabited by ruling oppressors be whitewashed & sacrosanct, devoid of the reality of their victims, providing an excuse for ignorance when the survivors have neither respite from the people nor the state?” “Why should you be able to deny and gloss over the reality that India in 2018 is a violent nation led by those that dehumanize, maim and kill people routinely to fund its existence. That the state is at war with the people. That the rulers of the state are oppressors, beneficiaries of casteist oppression and have built a violent oppressive state?

 

Where do we go from here Ohol asks? Back to the uncivilized,unequal, hate filled, exclusionary, exploitative dark ages or towards enabling the best of humanity? “Who will civilize you?” she asks of those wanting to build a world conducive towards a birth-based segregation, classification and hierarchical capital entitlement through the casteist brahminism ideology. “What sort of world do we want to build?”

 

On the genesis of the physical art form Ohol says:

 

“This year, I started being haunted by all the dehumanized bodies that are the collateral damage of our unequal, violent, casteist, socio-political scenario. The rape of Badaun – the sight of those children hanging underneath the mango tree, the harassment of Rohith Vemula driving him to suicide in Hyderabad, the massacre of Thoothukudi, the brutal gangrape, murder and mutilation of Jisha, the lynching of Akhlaq, the hacking to death of Pranay, the abundant dehumanization of the oppressors and victims and survivors around, sometimes less than one degree away started forcing me out.

 

I had to tear down the big happy abstract expressionist paintings in progress off my walls because they no longer fit the world I was living in. I do not like making figurative works in this country full of people but figures are hanging all around me, not letting me rest in the day nor sleep at night. The girls of Badaun started metamorphosing as figures in my paintings, causing me immense pain, driving me away from the canvas and paint for days. I did not know how to do justice to them in an abstract form while keeping the integrity of what they were asking me to narrate.

 

I started carrying the pain of violence and abuse and othering and dehumanization of the raped murdered girls hanging from trees and others who joined them in my body where they found resonance with my own story. Tormented, I found myself explaining to a Japanese Butoh master that I was being haunted by these dead hanging girls and the violent country. I showed him the picture, explained that I needed to let them out. With his guidance and help, I started my physical research on dehumanization. I worked on desexualizing my body, using it as a tool, allowing my body to become the medium to tell their stories.”

Piu Performed "Dehumanized Body"
Day 2 and Day 3 in Kolkata


Day3 Dehumanized Body: India 2018 | Kolkata #LiveArt
Today a guy came in a saffron kurta, stood on the performance space threshold, while Pravin and I were rearranging some prints and yelled at the "The Rape of Badaun and The Murder of Rohith Vemula" video. The video was playing the part where Sushma Swaraj denies that Rohith is a Dalit juxtaposed with #RohithVemula's assertion in a video interview that he is a dalit. This man in the saffron kurta, yelled at the screen in Bangla saying "ROHITH WAS NOT A DALIT. ROHITH COMMITTED SUICIDE.
" The part of the AV is my commentary on the #notadalit denial of identity tactic repeatedly used by the ruling government to deny justice to persecuted dalits, by scuttling support and not implementing the sc/st act. They did the same thing in Badaun. I said to Pravin that we must probably photograph or record him but he asked me to ignore it. Later when friends came and I told them, many could not believe it because they said this is Kolkata, it doesn't happen here. But it did happen.
This is the first time that an artist is doing a large scale socio-political multimedia art installation in a mainstream art space focusing on the mass scale continuous dehumanization and persecution of survivor castes/dalits by individuals and the state by showing material from on the ground which is in conflict with the country's right wing ruling casteist propaganda.
This material is so often blackflagged and left out of biased newsrooms and from the discourse favoring oppressors in the country. So I show it on big 15 feet wide screens in my installation juxtaposed by butoh performances that channel this persecution through my body in video and live. I won't let you deny it. I won't let you ignore it.
I will not let you blacklist it and misrepresent and continue your persecution. I won't let you rest easy after the pain you cause with your collusion. I will bring you face to face with what you are doing in your spaces, in your faces. The video in the installation of "The Attack on Bhima Koregaon" directly brings to the public first person on the ground footage of what really happened in #BhimaKoregaon .
While the government is spreading propaganda about Ambedkarites being anti-national, violent or maoists, mainstream news demonized them and added to the propaganda by characterizing them as the ones to start the violence and unrest.
The video installation directly shows the planning, attack, on the ground rioting, stoning, burning, bombing by saffron flag bearing brahmin supremacists on the Ambedkarite crowd that gathers every year at Bhima Koregaon. This is why it is important to take this installation to different cities around the country. The multimedia installation [social media videos, sound, voice, sound art, performance art, everyday objects, text] is artivism. It is more than a protest.
I give the audience objects used to dehumanize by performing actions recommended in the Manusmriti. There are context cards of dehumanizing actions to do excerpted from the Manusmriti. The Manusmriti is the handbook of laws for brahmin supremacy - the ideology supplied to us today as "hindutva" I'm asking the audience, "If this is your ideal and these are the social laws you want to live by, why don't YOU start with ME? Do what you can with the objects to my body.
Can you be as inhumane as your lawbook asks you to be and can you dehumanize me to that extent? Do it and then go and look at yourself in the mirror. Is this who you want to be and is this the world you want to build?""

Stills from today's opening performance. So stoked about today's collaboration with Bulada aka Pradip Chattopadhyay of Mohiner Ghoraghuli, Bengal's first indigenous psy rock band. Such a brilliant, down to earth artist.

Thank you Michael Northam for suggesting I skip making a sound track and collaborate with him instead. He takes the happening to a completely different level with his voice and sound art.

Videos Installations:
The Attack on Bhima Koregaon,
The Rape of Badaun,

Looking forward to collaborating with more local artists in the coming days. Please contact me if you have something or someone in mind, including yourself.

Skipped the 'chief guests' opening ceremony because a) it's an independent work of art which is a socio-political commentary & b) opening ceremonies and the ji sirji culture felt too overwhelming .

India Butoh Scholarship Program

Hello! My name is Rhizome Lee.

I’m a butoh dancer.

We have the Subbody Resonance Butoh School, Himalaya

in Himalaya, India.

We continued this activity for 20 years.

But now we are facing a big crisis.

Because 20 years ago, we could set the school tuition at a very low level, then everybody could join in.

But in these 20 years, Indian economy developed each year 10 percent increased.

We try to set the school fee as low as possible, but still, we have to increase it a little bit.

Then now we are facing a big crisis because of young Indian people or earnest Asian people cannot pay the school fee.

Then we need your support.

We are going to build an India butoh scholarship program.

By your support, we can build a grant system to support young people for learning this Life Resonance Butoh.

Our method is to stop thinking with moving meditation; swaying, vibrating, breathing and so on. We call this moving meditation as “Medimotion”.

We stop language thinking, and we become subconscious

body mode (subbody).

Then automatically subconscious movement comes out spontaneously.

We follow it by the whole body, and this becomes our “subbody butoh creation”. Not only butoh dance but also the drawing, music, writing and so on.

We can spread this method to all kind of art genre.

 In this Life Resonance Art Method, we don’t need ant equipment.

Only we have the body, that’s OK. Just learning to stop thinking.

So everybody can become an artist only one in the world.

To build this program, to support the Life Resonance Art, I need your support.

Please support this Life Resonance Art and develop it together.

We need your push. Only one push, please!

Then we can spread this to the world.

Many young and earnest people can learn this method, and become a unique artist.

Thank you very much.

Jonathan will perform
"Exposing the exposition"
after 7 years

I'm so glad to hear that the 7 years old subbody
which was born in Himalaya is still alive.
please continue to deepen it.
Lee
Hey Lee ! It is still the same and yet seven years older.
The more I research in this talking butoh thing, the more it becomes improvisation.
Next year I have a residency and will make somehow a formal piece out of it.
I like slow cooking creation. We are friends now...

Jonathan


We passed through the third week of #exin somehow successfully. One more to go.
Tonight we share performances again at Garage. I was told the mad butosopher would show up with an extract of Exposing the exposition, born 7 years ago at Subbody butoh school.

A certain place that your Life transforms


I ask all you butoh creators on my friends list this: where can you engage in serious butoh study with international co-researchers 5 days a week all year-round like an unending residency? If you know of a place, let me know because I only know of workshops here and there and places where you have to jump around from one studio to the other in a big city (e.g. Tokyo).

The story behind Subbody in the Himalayas goes back 20 years. Before then, Rhizome Lee (Japan-based) had been touring much, but was unsatisfied with the degree of research he was engaging in. A thought crossed his mind that he needed a perfect location in the world to engage in serious study of butoh based in Hijikata's method. The point was not to copy Hijikata but to go underneath the artist in order to discover his endless creativity.

It took 7 years later in Dharamsala, India for Lee to complete the school built specifically for the creation process of butoh. The building has been up 13 years, and Lee is still engaged in endless research. This is not a place to dip your feet in. This is a place to transform your entire life to butoh. Exactly what Hijikata expected of a butoh dancer. All or nothing.

For me, it has certainly transformed my life, and I can see no other way than the butoh life. Every single day here, I am getting a new epiphany. Research has become my life. I have even spent a little over a year writing this manual that is available free here - http://manual.shadowbody.com. This is not uncommon that big creative works, genres, or creative movements come out as a result of passing through the school. This is a house of creation. I may even venture to say that if you come in with little creativity, you leave with a surplus of it.

The school has 2 dance floors, an amphitheater, and is situated with a beautiful view of the Himalayan mountains.

#Kolkata Call for volunteers:


I'm doing an Audio Visual installation at the Academy of Fine Arts from the 2nd to 8th October 2018 titled "Dehumanized Body : India 2018." Everyday, for 1/2 hour from 6-6:30 the artist and audience becomes a live part of the artwork. This performance as well as the installation is about the continuous ongoing dehumanization of people by individuals and state. I have channelled our violent surroundings and times through my body into the piece. It is a current cultural commentary.

The work is meant to force an acknowledgement of how violent a society we are without recourse to superficial delusions of grandeur, to show reality, to present a mirror and to evoke a response for change. The motivation is to do the job of an artist. The elements used to design the performance are "objects used to dehumanize" , "artist" , "mirrors" , "ongoing visual projections of the installation" , "sound" and "audience".

I need help to manage the audience interaction as I perform. To volunteer, please contact me on ohol.priya@gmail.com or 9967303965

Butoh Memory. :) I'll never forget it. Eternal experience with you. :)

In Bu I introduced the elements of dance Now it's the exciting half. I hope i can give you at least part of the relaxed atmosphere that has ruled between us this week. A week when I didn't have to "behave", I could do what was in my deepest insides. I didn't care if it was right or wrong. Lee made me believe I was just as perfect as pretty girls around me. Don't think it was so easy at first. It was a step-by-step.

I had a strange experience.
I'm having a bit of a hard time showing it to him because I've known a very unusual genre, which is still swirling around me.
It was the first time in the hungarian country, Lee Rhizome, the dancer of Japan, to present to us this ancient Japanese dance. It took two courses for the second-floor and injured dancers, dancing with loving people. I was lucky enough to get involved.

I have to tell you that I've been doing some research on the internet, and I've seen very unusual and bizarre footage. So I put a lot of prejudice into it. But!!! My curiosity was bigger than my fear. I don't regret it. :)

I'm going to try to introduce you to this miracle with the images of bela molnar.

ARTISTIC RESIDENCE 2018

Teaser of videodança Silence and sound, co-creation between the film team RESIDENCES OF DANCE, with the participation of the resident artists.

The Silence and sound videodança is an immersion in the most intimate landscapes of the Chapada dos Veadeiros, in exuberant natural settings, a path that expresses an artistic poetics in resonance with the creative process: The luminosity and the own sound of the closed biome evoke sensations, composes a visual poetry, in the continuity and discontinuity temporal space of the image.

The videodance script: The dance develops from sensitive listening, an encounter with the authenticity of the movement, manifesting itself in the dualities: Light, shadow. Absence, presence. Day Night. Dry, moist. Female, male. Expansion, contraction ... manifesting in a cemetery of burned trees during the October 2017 fire. The hill of pure clay undressing beneath the clear sky. The whale's hill of dazzling fields at sunrise. The rich gallery woods. The underwater universe, with its vegetation. The fauna and flora of the cerrado are accompanied in their cycles, in relation to the aspects of day and night ... The perception of impermanence and indissolubility in the relationship of the human being integrated to the environment in a state of presence. With the intention that the existence develops in harmony with the rhythms of the human nature and in resonance with the environment. Observe the seasons of the year, the influences of the Earth, the sun and the lunar cycle, an experience to delve into a deep ecology. Contributing to the visibility of the Cerrado, one of the most threatened hotspots in the world, the largest savannah on the planet. Departing in the strengthening of the local economy, focusing on tourism of experience, increasing the natural aptitude that the region offers for this economic and social sector.

Harvest of 2018 Summer

This summer, subbody=cobodies
danced around the world!

 In this summer, subbodies all over the world are being activated unusually.
That time might be approaching.
Let's change every corner of town, park, mountain, riverside, coasts around the world into a theater!
The place where Life dances will instantly transform into a theater.
It is deterritorization of the space,
nomadization of the people,
rhizoming of the being.
Invisible change is progressing little by little.

Subbody=cobody is Rhizome.
When Rhizome connects each together, it becomes
Plateaus.
Already many Plateaus are born at various places.
When the Plateaus of Rhizome resonate beyond the borders,
it becomes
Multitude!
It is the time the world must change!

Taonta


When: 23 August at 19:00-19:45
Where: Linnunlauluntie 4, FI-00530 Helsinki, Suomi

TAONTA is a performative exploration into the inevitable. Taonta combines butoh-dance, sound resonance and performance art. Through touching the shadows, Taonta reaches towards the Mystery itself. Into its flow, Taonta weaves bothness, necessary sickness, brightness and eternal play of unity.
Taonta is here and Taonta is there. It dwells in the footseps of a common man and rests in the wingstrokes of a seagull.

The performance takes place outdoors nearby Linnunlauluntie walking route, opposite to address Linnunlauluntie 4 (next to outdoors gym).
The performance starts at 7 pm and lasts around 45 min.
Prepare for the weather.

About performers:
Taonta is performed by three Helsinki-based experimental artists/researchers Santeri Vikström, Jaakko Kuikka and Emilia Liimatainen. They have studied butoh and different bodymind techniques and performed in various places. The main focus in their artistic approach is in improvisation, authenticity, life resonance and unbecoming and becoming.


"Have you heard that it was good to gain the day?
I also say it is good to fall, battles are lost in the same spirit in which they are won."
- Walt Whitman

Swallet ft. Butoh Performance
by Margarita & Yi + DJ Mudhut



When: 17, 18 August at 21:00–01:00

Where: Epilogue Lounge

A diverse night of butoh performance, dj's and live music.
Come and enjoy a variety night at epilogue!

Butoh is a form of dance/theatre/expression that was created in Japan after WWII. It is an art that is associated with pain, taboos and expression, however multi-interpreted across the world and through the ages. Dancer Margarita (Taiwan) and Yi (China) both studied the art of Butoh performance and have been traveling and performing their craft. Butoh is a performance that is felt by the viewer, where expression through the body takes hold. The performance will be musically assisted by Sy (Tasmania ) and Saar (Netherlands) (AKA Swallet) with an experimental soundscape, creating musical communication with the performance.

Swallet is a two piece dark-wave band found and active in Mparntwe (Alice Springs). Utilizing electronic instruments, guitar and vocals to create new wave sounds from the 80's, contemporary electronic beats, and political and sensitive poetry.

DJ Mudhut (ADJUSTER, BUG EYED, RESIN MOON) will see the night out with his broad selection of upbeat tunes including classic funk, soul, hip hop, post-punk, pop, dance, electronica, indie and rock and heaps more from the 60s to the present day!

9PM START!
FREE ENTRY!

Cycle 6: Trans-being in the darkness of the waters


Andanza, a non-dance
The incorporation of authentic expressiveness, a dance of non-movement.
To fall down. Entering. Allow yourself. Dance from the bones, feel deep. From the invisible, to the bodily surface.
Where do we find the essential movement of the body?

Is dance the movement born of matter or the matter that is created after movement?

The dance resides in the emptiness of our bodies waiting to be born. Exploring the wild way of the movement, I invite you to give body to the dance that possesses you!

Thanapol performed "Retreat"

When the dance pattern structure is linked to the subject of political power, the life that is under power and structure, the choreography is linked to self-internal interaction, the and the extent of the risk, the confrontation and the opening of the area, giving the identity in a new form until the New score. Very heavy.

Where: Eco Aldeia Flecha da Mata


..Slowly…
We have all the time in the world…

Can we hear the poetry of our breath?
Of our weight, skin, heart, bones?

What moves you?
Imagination, pleasure, memories or tension?

Can we percieve the contsant movement that is happening in our bodies and let ourselves be danced?

How does nature inspire and expand the dance?

The breath weaving our movement, our relationships, our history …
...

An invitation to dive together into a journey through the landscapes that move inside our bodies! It will be a process of free creations, integration and healing, with the support and expansion of the waters and of the nature that surrounds us. Including the needs of each body present and its processes, integrating techniques such as:::

Contact Improvisation, Butoh, Liquid Dance, Games from the Universe of Clowning, Authentic Movement, Somatic Arts, Aquatic Therapies, Breathing Techniques ...

All tools that inspire us and working with them to support and permit the mystery that we truly are, we unwind ourselves freely and organically, creating and healing through these states of dance

Come to The Flynn church lawns this wed 8th from 11 am to witness a magic collaboration between Alice artists, Jeremy D Conlon and myself with international dancers Margarita Tseng and Yi - ‘We enrich our experience and dance vocabulary by finding ways of resonating with a multitude of environments, being fully aware and attuned to what is surrounding us and connecting with the “present”. Every performance is unique and depends on where the flow and the body will guide us.’ Margarita and Yi are both studying Butoh in India and performing while travelling around the world. Jeremy and myself will be sound scaping using live instruments and fx as well as pre recorded material from places and musicians, all original and improvised.

A Journey to the Roots of Life

Upon visiting the cliff dwellings of the ‘Salado’ people, now located in the Tonto National Forest (New Mexico), I contemplate what it means to meet Life at its Roots. Here I walk through the ghosts of the past, in the intersection of the #now.

As I sit with ancestral and collective fields of consciousness, i recognize how precisely Life learned to disassociate and disconnect from its Roots. Bypassing the pain was #essential to conduct the agenda of the day.

I sit with how iamthecolonizer, able to move about the world and choose where to lay my head. I look straight into the eyes of the generations that came before me, those that turned away from one past and towards a different future, by choice or by force. Leaving the #homeland came with a legacy of not really having a truehome or truebelonging, especially in the body.

What is the difference between Butoh in Europe and in Japan?

"What do you think is the most significant difference, if there’s any, between Butoh in Europe and Butoh in Japan?
Imre Thormann: Butoh is always strongly re-linked to your personal environment and experiences. To your origin. Everything else is a lie. You can not just copy forms in Butoh. My Butoh is different than yours and that from Japanese dancers. Butoh is not Japanese. It ́s origins are going back to the German expressive dance “Neuer Tanz”. Without a lot of others western influences (Antonin Artaud, Jean Genet, Impressionism, and so on…), Butoh would never started its journey. Nevertheless, the Japanese body was essential for its nascency. Not the weight of 300 hundreds years of industrialization put there bodies in chains, like in the west. Its rural and archetypal body, on which the industrialization was just a new costume, revolted. A body choked by cultural and social restrictions and determinations, starts a journey to it ́s liberation. The rebellion of the flesh. The body beyond cultural and even human effected determination. The body without east and west. The body in its origin."

Francisca Sousa interview with Imre Thormann, 13th December 2014

Dara did walking performance in the public
before the stage at the PAD Utcafesztivál , Hungary


The dance on the festival was interesting,
I chose to walk between the crowd and only after this had a dedicated place, a closed garden with dedicated audience.
I resonated with people much more while I was walking among them...and felt less connection when being on stage.
I feel dancing between people, dance as everyday life much more than being a performer.

Mother, her body in hospital was beginning of my Butoh.
Inexplicable form from whole life hard work, pressed emotion, more invisible story around her body.
Kept dancing for some years through my body,
listening in and out.

Inexplicable words, beyond language.
Qualia is everything which our life resonate with. Inner Qualia(life memory, ancient) and outer Qualia(physical, current) resonate together at the same time in the flow of life mystery.

Now Mother Qualia is guiding me to Korea.
Floating in between you and me, living and dying.

Here is the first breath of life resonance art tour.
Dancing the life with ‘Mother Qualia’

Adam, Street performance in Germany!

The Child Internment Camps in USA

As part of Anna Barth's 4 day butoh intensive in Berlin,
we decided to do a street improvisation themed on the current event of the child internment camps in USA.
A record of 6 weeks shows 2000 children were taken from families and kept in camps. This is not a new problem but has been going on for years. There are also camps outside of the USA where children are recorded to have been kept for up to years.

If eventually the children are reunited with the parents,
that only means a whole family put into cages.

In the subbody Butoh class, there is no teacher, we rename it as the "Midwife". Teacher is our Life, not a person. Midwife just de-self and listens to the potantiality of each person's Life and support it to open.
We invent how to change the all hierarchical Tree orders in the world. Because it is too old fashion and disturbance to open infinite creativity of Life.

Piu (Priyadarshini)


These words are a transparent crystal of her sincere research.
Please taste it.


What is Butoh?

Some of the best people I have ever known are here at the Butoh school exploring the conscious, subconscious, other dimensions and the other side of the human condition. Even the self-selected artistic bunch in Dharamshala are wary of this artistic practice. What a weird attitude towards such a deeply touching, moving, spiritual process. The people here have been tempered by suffering and scars into deep loving compassion.

What is Butoh? A protest art, an abstract dance guided by your own body, a way to listen more carefully, a leaving behind of all human conditioning to become a medium, a flat structure of humanity with infinite artistic freedom, a researching of body, mind, trauma, nature, people, emotions, beings, sprits, a process of cohesively bonding extremely edgy strangers and a redifining of what art is. A revolt against set rules of aesthetics.

Support the Life Resonance Art!

 

 

Thousand of Ripples of Life Resonance Art!

 

We are about to take the first step from the Subbody Resonance Butoh Himalaya to the worldwide Life Resonance Art.

We have been hidden in the Himalayas in India for two decades,
and already over 1,000 graduates of the Resonance Butoh Cram School, spread around the world. They are developing various activities worldwide, not only Butoh and dance, spanning many art fields.

Based on the infinite creativity, originality, resonativity (resonance ability) of Life, we can support people to expand the potentiality of Life.

 

We generically named it "Life Resonance Art".

The Life Resonance is the Rhizome and Nomad
that cannot be stopped by anyone.

There is no center, no boundary.

We can connect freely anytime anywhere and separate flexible,
beyond the existing world hierarchical order and baundaries among nation, religion, culture and so on.

We are co-researching the novel way of co-creation of the world
that all Life could be alive and open full creativity and originality.

Why don't you join this new Art of Life Resonance?

Everyone is welcome i
f you are looking for a new way of life regardless of genre.

We are also seeking warm support for this activity.

If you can support this, we would appreciate it.

Let us know, please.

 

We are co-building a new cloud founding network, too
for these activities.

Dara will dance collaborating with Tibetan musician Loten Namling again
in Hungary


See the trailer video


She and Loten collaborated in Dharamsala last year
(The trailer video above was shot at that time.),
and this month collaborate again at her hometown, Pecs in Hungary.
It's so pleasant thing.
Subbody=cobody are nomad and rhizome,
connect freely and separate flexiblly.
At anywhere, we are One Life!


Mgon Nagpo (The Great Black One)


"The rhythm of the now does not reach me through light, it resonates within every particle of the darkness of the body. It’s darkness that binds us, opening up the horizon where we finally meet. Don’t be deluded by the mirage of light, this rhythm will become dance even when your eyes are closed."

Two eagles were circling above when they first played at the foots of the Himalaya, in Dharamsala. The meeting of Tibetan music and Japanese buto in two wanderers through whom traditions of East and West, mountains and valleys live together. Their common language is the sounding rhythm in the darkness of the body.

Musician: Loten Namling
Dancer: Ma (Dara)

19.00, 30th June 2018, garden of Vasarely Museum Pécs
Trailer: https://vimeo.com/273860344
Entrance: free and friendly
.............
Based in Switzerland, Loten Namling has travelled worldwide with his lute, singing the songs of the 6th Dalai Lama, as well as other traditional Tibetan songs, and his own songs.
Originally from Pécs, Hungary, Ma has been traveling the world seeking the origin of movement. Butō is her way to find dance in the most surprising ways.

Butō atelier: the dancing eyes of skin

Where: Pécs, city centre, Hungary
When: 6-7-8 July 2018
Friday: 10:00-12.30, 14:00-17:00 studio
Saturday: 9:30-12:30, 14:00-18:00 outdoors
Sunday: 9:30-12:30, 14:00-17:00 studio


With the aim to create tradition, we launch this year the Butō atelier to open up the inner land through the exploration of the body as a unified subtle sense.
On the path of butō the self recognizes itself as a spatial entity than a personality, and so creates the receptivity for life resonance. Butō (舞踏) does not follow definite forms, it is poetic in its nature, and for this reason it is difficult to grasp it in an explicit way. Poetry brings us closer to the essence of butō. As a spatial entity that indwells in space, your body is a whole perceptual system that unify details.
In our practice instead of being a predator of perception, we create the space for receptiveness and a silent observer to let the language of movement unfold itself.

The duo of RhythmosNoir invites you to share a poetic movement practice through becoming explorers of our subtle sense. Dance in butō for us, is a light through a kaleidoscope that comes alive when the mindbody becomes a passage between the present moment and the inner land. This path is not about “knowledge production”, but about the process of discovering, and in a way unlearning, in every instant.
We believe, it is through movement we recognize our known spacetime, a movement holding certain vibrating rhythmic patterns, where poetic rhythms can be sensed in their free expression.

In short –
the atelier is about our subtle sense and living poetry

The butō atelier calls those who are interested in writing or/and express poetry through the body, those curious to find their unique dance, and those wishing to connect with their inner land.

The RhythmosNoir duo, Darinka and Edde have throughout their wanderer lives lived in various cultures, experiencing several dance and mind-body techniques around the world.
Darinka is a buto dancer, dance historian, researching spatial relations between movement and the environment (The title of her PhD research is „The Meeting of Spheres”).
Edde is traveler poet, butō dancer, a teacher of yin yoga, who has been studying various shamanistic ways, and seeking to transcribe the alchemy of nature’s spirits onto the moving image.
Both have been influenced by Japanese butō, and the approach of Rhizome Lee, with whom Darinka is continuing a co-research since their first meeting in 2016. Both live the path of butō which for them is a natural safe passage, a gate-less gate in-between worlds.

The practice will be in the hall of artemisia space and the waters of the sea and the river.

For more information please contact!!

" water dance explores the art of connection of breath that allows you to establish a deep relationship between what of the session with the one you receive, inspiring confidence and offering the attention that is needed to bring someone below the surface of the water.

Through the water with safety, ease and fluidity, giving what receives a deep state of sense of freedom and joy.

Waterdance makes it possible to explore the poetry of spontaneity inspired by what is present at the time of therapy.
Creating your own vocabulary of movements that have been introductionof since breath."

Leire performed in a musium in Spain


Yes! That's it!
Dance in the museum, dance in the park!
Dance everywhere on the planet!

Let's make the street corners of the world subbody=cobody theaters!


Dear Lee

I send you some photos of a performance my mum invited me to do at her exhibition in a museum in Spain. One friend of her collaborates with sound and lights.

The qualia she explores in her paintigs were those of: warm, end of the world, volcano, underground, lava... She gave me a big piece of plastic that is what covers her studio floor when she paints. So all the colours that dont go "inside" her paintings fall in this plastic.

Then she wrote a text of Artaud on it and asked me to do what I want in this space.

It was interesting and a lot to explore when doing "performance" in an enviroment out of the Butoh school.

See you soon

Leire


PD: The text of Artaud that was writen in the plastic (is a translation I did from the cook in Spanish):

A whispering wind agitates all those lost larvae that where gathered by the night in mirroring images. There can be felt a trituration of floodgates, a luck of horrible volcanic shock where the light of the day has been disociated. And from that shock, from that tearing of two principles, born all the images potentially, with a more strong push than a volcanic seabed wave.

There is the strengh of a consolidated dream, as hard as the shell of an insect and ful of legs spread in all the directions of the sky.

Butoh Revolution


I used to say that my wild wife gained life and body when I started dancing butoh. Butoh is the dance of darkness. Darkness, the abyss of the unknown, portal of the unconscious. Invokes a state of soul beyond duality, without ugly or beautiful, is to incorporate.
4 years ago, when I assumed that this was my medicine, the most authentic way to express myself, I received trials, critical comments and criticism. I was invested in something new, dark, unknown in the eyes of common and scary sense in the eyes of the status quo. It was a moment of breaking with the need to please to live according to my own pulse. I know I've caused a great deal of trouble and what a delight it is to jump out I allowed myself! The Discovery of this form of expression led me to creative chasms before unimaginable, LED me true freedom of movement. And as everything that is authentic thrives, today, what was strange generates curiosity and many people come to me wanting to experience....
Clean face I open the doors and invite you to give body the dance that possesses you, dance of life, because all that is alive (and dead) if trans-form.

Dar Ma


Ma Dar introduced a beautiful article of Inuit people on facebook. It is about “Synchronicity between Animal and Human” in Animism of Inuit people.

But, this is not only past story. We still keep this world in our darkness of body as subbody=cobody.
The subbody=cobody has no boundary as same as very earliest Animistic world. 
We become everything in the Universe beyond the boundary between human and the other being.
Not only pysical being, but also any imaginary beings, we transform beyond life and death, beyond time and space.
There is no border between subbody and cobody, indivisual and group. We are one Life in the subbody=cobody world.

Life Resonance is non-dual Rhizome. It is sprout form of future of human being.
This year, we are going to co-research the Tree-Rhizome method that we go and come flexibly among dualistic Tree world and non-dual Rhizome world in Himalayas together!
Thank you Dar!

 

Synchronicity between Animal and Human

 

In the very earliest time
When both people and animals lived on earth
A person could become an animal if he wanted to
and an animal could become a human being.
Sometimes they were people
and sometimes animals
and there was no difference.
All spoke the same language
That was the time when words were like magic.
The human mind had mysterious powers.
A word spoken by chance might have strange consequences.
It would suddenly come alive
and what people wanted to happen could happen--
all you had to do was say it.
Nobody could explain this:
That's the way it was.

-- Nalungiaq, Inuit woman interviewed by ethnologist Knud Rasmussen in the early twentieth century.
