7. Whereabouts of the body is placed into body

8.A strange person approaches you and pinches your skins and memories  つまむ奇妙な人

9. Stain on the wall infinitely
 どこまでも壁に染みる

Cicada's eye is completely no movement as the rock.
Your eyes become the rock, and glare back the world.
We inhibit to express, but the body which accepted many disasters and deformed into an unique form. Glare back the world with showing the deformed part.
Invent your own "Rock Cicada's Eyes" as multi-resonance Life.
This is the symbol of the "Kan Flower".

16. Find the novel ending which you have never done

Torn God 引き裂かれた神様 
Tear means to pull apart with force. Imagine that your soul has been torn.
No human condition has remained. In each house had like this "Torn God" before the WW2 in Japanese country villages. Because there were no hospitals and no mental hospitals.
Then Hijikata boy watched like this "Torn God" and "Farman".

Totally he called them "Sick Dancing Princess".
The name is beautiful but actually, like these.
In the childhood, pure Life Resonance happened between him and them, and he was merged into them.

Remember when you met disabled people at the first time

I was born after 3 years of the Second World War. In the town many disabled soldiers. And keloid people by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. The half face was purple and meltdown.

At the first meeting immediately my Life became the same. Simultaneous Life Resonance happened.
After the second time, the Ego divided self and others. But before Ego built, the immediate Life Resonance happens. This is the miracle of Life Resonance.
Research the experience which you don't resonate well and dance it.
Hijikata collected many Qualia that the Qualia that Life could not resonate well have become the whole being is malformed as the following;

These are extraordinary bitter waters that will catalyze to let the subbody=cobodies Butoh of Life from the darkness of the body.
Over the years it will take time to figure out how to dance these Qualia that Life can not resonate well.
Until the day that your <Qualia of Kan> will spring out from your body.
Until the day when people around the world start dancing of each Kan Qualia that they can not resonate well in every place on the planet!


 

7 July 2018 

Invent your own "Rock Cicada's eyes"


Honestly said, I don't want to dance these Kan Qualia for several years after I picked up them in Japan. I needed to keep safe distance with them for a while.
It is just this year that I started to translate them and prepare to use it in the subbody class.
Because they are too much Hijikata, too much uncomfortable Qualia even for me. Because all of them are the Qualia that Life could not resonate well. I have enough Qualia that I could not resonate well.
I have no space to accept Hijikata's Kan Qualia any more....
At first my ego resisted strongly against these Qualia.
(Then I recommend you to wait untill your Life will be ready to resonate with these.)
But, when I read it by body repeatedly, slowly it turn to pleasure.
Today I introduce my own experience with these Kan Qualia below.

During the bodily investigation in the Kan Qualia, a strong memory of the "Rock Cicada's Eyes" visited me.
I couldn't remember where it is in the beginning, but by accident I encountered it. It is the photo above. An old student used it for the Poster of Delhi Butoh Festival, and it was in my picture folder.

If I selected three Kan Qualia, I will choose the three below.

Squeaky air きしむ空気

The first Qualia that I recommend you to practice repeatedly by your body.
“Squeaky air” means that the air is pressed and warped; the air makes squeaky high-pitched sound “Gigigiiiiiii!”

Imagine that your space is pressed strongly and the air makes the strange sound. Dance the response of your Life.

This Qualia is strongly resonate with the Qualia of the first desaster which everybody has met during the birth. After ten months happiest fetus sawy in the anumio fluid, one day the womb suddenly starts shrinking.
Squeaky air is exactly the womb's shrinking Qualia itself.
We can understand through dancing this Qualia, the first desaster Qualia is always resonating together with other hardship in each life.
If we can see it transparently, it will be able to overcome the repetition of the first desaster Qualia.

Being gouged and melt  えぐられて溶ける

“Being gouged” means that the flesh is cut and made a hole by a sharp knife. And the part is melt down. Imagine it by your body, and dance it.
This Qualia is also most universal desonance Qualia between Life and the world. In spite of any hard experience, Life can overcome it in time.


Rock cicada’s eye 岩の蝉の目玉

The third important one is this.
Cicadas are insects barking on trees in summer.
Long years live underground and only for one week live on the earth.Cicada's eye is completely no movement, Like the rock.
It's a Japanese traditional view that cicada's eye is like the rock.
Your eyes become the rock, and glare at the world.
Sometimes it can be a beauty.
By inhibiting the expression, a part of the body has deformed.
A part of body or mind has changed to the disabled form.
Invent your own "Rock Cicada's Eyes".
Once you are watched by this eyes, you can't forget it forever.
Invent such a strong rotten eyes.
It is the symbol of the "Kan Flower".

Understand the 'Kan' with these expansions, and research them in your darkness of body. When you find how to change it to a Butoh dance,
you will get the 'Flower of Kan'. It is the essence of Butoh of Life.

A circle of flowers as a stage. A few candles. A puzzled and attentive audience. Some dead flowers for dinner. Colors. Space darkness to mirror mine. And above all, the joy of dancing. Loving sharing my art, laughing at the self and transforming again and again.
This was the first butoh in Niseko.

What is the difference between Butoh in Europe and Butoh 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."

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.

The Butoh ――A dedication to Tatsumi Hijikata
 Part 2
Abyss of ”Quiet House”

 
 
We are now co-reseaching the Kan Qualia (Qualia that Life is unable to resonante well) in the Summer Intensive. We add this chapter to "The Butoh" second edition.

229 Flower of Kan 2

Investigation in ‘Kan’ Qualia that Life can’t resonate well, collected by Tatsumi Hijikata

We introduce so many “Kan” Qualia collection by Hijikata in the 212 chapte. Now we are going to investigate in each Kan Qualia and try to read it by body.

Why we investigate in it deeper?

We found that the essence of the Qualia of Kan is Qualia which Life could not resonate well.

Also we found that the Qualia which Life could not resonate well are deeply connected with the origin of our subbody=cobody. 

On the contrary, our ego and consciousness marginalized them and forgot them, sometime dissociated them from the identity. And subbody=cobody had to sink into the depth of the darkness of the body with them.

That’s why it is necessary to quest hem for us to meet the secrets of the birth of our subbody=cobody.

Let’s try to read it by our own body one by one at first.

After then, try to research similar Qualia that you have marginalized and you have never repeated. It is the most important Qualia for becoming whole Life.

Hijikata has collected so many Kan Qualia throughout his life. Now I divide them into three groups. The first group is pure Qualia which Life could not resonate well.

It is the beginning of ‘Kan’, in another word it’s the <Jo of Kan>.

1. Subtle bodily sensation of the beginning of 'Kan'

When Life meets something unable to resonate well, a subtle bodily sensation visits us. It is the sign of the beginning of 'Kan'.
Hijikata caught the subtle sensation exactly as the following;
It is so subtle and strange that the daily body ignores or cannot notice, but when we stop daily gross consciousness, everybody can catch it. 

Being gouged and melt  えぐられて溶ける

“Being gouged” means that the flesh is cut and made a hole by a sharp knife. And the part is melt down. Imagine it by your body, and dance it.

Squeaky air
きしむ空気

“Squeaky air” means that the air is pressed and warped; the air makes squeaky high-pitched sound “Gigigiiiiiii!”

Imagine that your space is pressed strongly and the air makes the strange sound. Dance the response of your Life.

 
Birds fly away from the temple
 こめかみから鳥が飛び立つ
Plants crawl the temple こめかみを植物がはう
Stain on the wall infinitely
 どこまでも壁に染みる

Stain means to mark (something) with color that is not easily removed.Your body stains on the wall infinitely.
 
Crack
 ヒビが入る
Crack means to break without a complete separation of the parts.

Blurred flowers wander ぶれた花がさまよう
Blurred means to become unclear or less distinct.

The itch
むずがゆさ 
I disappeared into the haze
 もやの中へ消える
Whereabouts of the body is placed into body
 ゆくえをからだの中に入れる
“Whereabouts” is a special term of Hijikata. It means the whole process that smoke or steam is going up and disappearing into the air. Place the whole process of the disappearing. Some parts of your body are vaporizing. Your body becomes the “Vaporized body”.
 
Multi-Layering of nerve mescaline
 メスカリンの神経の重層
 When you put a mescaline injection on your finger, the finger starts a shivering or swaying with illusions. And not only a finger, but also the other parts is injected, many layers of shivering are overlapped. Dance this multi-layering illusions and shivering.

This is the typical choreography of <Detail dance> by Hijikata.

How was the bodily reading the Kan Qualia above?
These are the most basic Qualia of Butoh of Life.
You may notice that not only these Qualia that Hijikata collected, but also each of you must have similar Qualia which your Life could not resonate well.
Remember it, and dance it. It will guide you to find your own Butoh.

 

2. Condensed 'Kan' on a part of body and mind

When an unsolved problem stays on the body for long time, it condenses and causes abnormality of the body. These are the typical 'Kan'.

(The first two phrases; ‘Rock cicada's eye’ and ‘Retracted scab’ were missed from “The Butoh 1st ver.)

Rock cicada’s eye 岩の蝉の目玉
Cicadas are insects barking on trees in summer.
Long years live underground and only for one week live on the earth.Cicada's eye is completely no movement, Like the rock.
It's a Japanese traditional view that cicada's eye is like the rock.
Your eyes become the rock, and glare at the world.
Sometimes it can be a beauty.
By inhibiting the expression, a part of the body has deformed.
A part of body or mind has changed to the disabled form.

Retracted scab 引きつったかさぶた
Retracted means to have been cramp and shrunk.
Each part becomes "Kan" flower.

Man of pock あばたの男
Pock is pockmark of skin.

Tear means to pull apart with force. Imagine that your soul has been torn.
No human condition has remained. In each house had like this "Torn God" before the WW2 in Japanese country villages. Because there were no hospitals and no mental hospitals.
Then Hijikata boy watched like this "Torn God" and "Farman".

Totally he called them "Sick Dancing Princess".
The name is beautiful but actually, like these.
In the childhood, pure Life Resonance happened between him and them, and he was merged into them.

Remember when you met disabled people at the first time

I was born after 3 years of the Second World War. In the town many disabled soldiers. And keloid people by the atomic bomb in Hiroshima. The half face was purple and meltdown.

At the first meeting immediately my Life became the same. Simultaneous Life Resonance happened.
After the second time, the Ego divided self and others. But before Ego built, the immediate Life Resonance happens. This is the miracle of Life Resonance.
Research the experience which you don't resonate well and dance it.
Hijikata collected many Qualia that the Qualia that Life could not resonate well have become the whole being is malformed as the following;
Stunted young grave keeper

you will get the 'Flower of Kan'. It is the essence of Butoh of Life.

Gio is preparing the Life Resonance Art Tour 2018-19
in the hospital with her mother.
Let's co-organize and join in it!

The schdule will be informed soon!

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’

What is your dance of life with Mother Qualia?

Many hugs with mother qualia love.

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.

Sinking into darkness of the body
 

 “It is comforting, however, and a source of profound relief to think that man is only a recent invention, a figure not yet two centuries old, a new wrinkle in our knowledge, and that he will disappear again as soon as that knowledge has discovered a new form.”

―from THE ORDER OF THINGS: An Archaeology of the Human Sciences (1966) by Michel Foucault


 29 June 2018

"Order of the things" Michelle Foucault


Words that has changed my life



This word of Foucault that I met at the end of my twenties changed my life fundamentally.
We can take off the "human" that is imprinted by the modern society, it turn on the light of the huge hope.
This word has become the guidance that I was able to reincarnate as a Butoh dancer in my 40's.
Because the Butoh, created by Tatsumi Hijikata also pursures to take off "human", and it opened up a practical way to become Life.
In those days in my twenties, what should we do exactly after the death of "human", I had no idea about it.
I was wandered with searching in the darkness of body, it's no way to be the "Super human" as if in Nietzsche.
However, after 20 years of retreat in Himalayas, the practical enlightment that we take off "human" and at the same time, the way of "De-self" to take off the "Ego", "Self identity" and "Personality" become transparent gradually yet slowly.
Hijikata also had pursured the way of "Butoh of Life" that "Sinking down to the relationship before the differentiation of self and others".
The way to be Life was becoming transparent.
Also those are resonate with the "Rhizome" that overcome the hierarchical Tree orders of Deleuze's thought who was Foucault's ally.
To take off Human, to become Life and to become Rhizome is Oneness.
Because Life is Rhizome, neither the center nor the upper and lower.
Foucault, Deleuze and Hijikata are deeply connected to one and are an eternal forerunner for us to become Life.

Take off the modern "human illusion" and become Life!

Now, I can say that with confidence.
Friend, it is not yet late.
Let's become Life desparately!

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.

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.

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.

Summer Intensive Course 
 
 
14 June 2018

Subtle Llistening and Rhizoming technique

At the resonance cram school summer intensive course,
Every day, we choose the most important thing for the participants and we concentrate on one technique and dig into it.
The second week focused on listening to even finer qualia,
Walking with blindfolds, touching with blindfold walking and giving the stimuluses of "Behind world" Qualia.
I attempted
<Rhizoming share> that the body infects each invisible Qualia.
Vishal guided the
resonance with things and searched for Life Resonant Qualia with stone, wood, paper, cloth, glass, metal, plastic and so on.
Pamela shared
the technique to dance behind the person, the technique to dance between, under and over the persons.

Listen to the subtler Qualia
We listen to the Qualia that have forgotten, marginalized and dissociated Qualia from the daily body.

Qualia that cannot resonate successfully
Many of them are collectively referred to as "Qualia that can not resonate well". There is a secret in which each subbody had to evacuate deep into the darkness of the body.

Clouding the body
Wear the diverse Qualia as possible to the each layer of the Hidden skins around the body.
It clouds the body and carries that clouding body.

Rhizoming technique
We listen carefully to the body. Listen to Qualia that does not exist in the physical realm. Only Life can resonate with the Qualia.
Hunt a moment in the flow of Qualia that changes every moment. And give the body to the flow of Qualia.
Sometimes it becomes a movement such as sway, trembling, shrinking, spreading, shocking,collapsing and so on.
Sometimes it will be a change in the density of the body coming from fear or condensation.
In Butoh, it is important to carry the density of body as well as the movement.
These changes spread and infect from a part of the body to other parts of the body. It is the Rhizoming technique that manages it.
Each moment the resonance pattern of the Life of one hundred trillion cells constituting the body changes.
Differentiate the changes in the super slow-motion and show the details of what is going on in Life.
Rhizoming is essential as a resonance technique of Life.
Dance the most important Qualia transformation occurs delicately in a dance piece and share it with the world precisely.
Audience's Life can be involved in that transformation.
That is the Life Resonance Butoh that is able to change the world.
Open various parts of the body and resonates with those diverse Qualia.

<Jumping Wild>
Each part of the body resonates with each Qualia in as short time as possible and moves from the next Qualia to the next.

It closes to the secret of the origin of the subbody=cobody hidden in the darkness of the body.
At the same time, it will bring us to the world of "Sick Dancing Princess".

On the weekend's subbody = Cobody Theater, participants' dance was little by little, but it certainly changed.
In the third week, we will integrate these, and we will head towards the
<Clouding Body> technique.

After these, the fourth week, we will learn the Qualia of
< Flower of Kan (Disability)> that Tatsumi Hijikata collected for long years, and explore each own Qualia of <Kan> and dance it.
This year 's June is going to be a dense month.

Practice Guide
 
This summer we are re-editing the "Practice Guide" which has been suspended for a while in recent years. The reason why it was interrupted is that the practical guide became too big to open because it was enormous. We will publish it on a single book at this opportunity.
Looking back the whole change of it, in the last few years the subbody technique has been deepening a lot and I know that what has been realized is becomes transparent. This article will be a symbol of that.

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.

Deep Listening

T
he Subbody Summer Intensive course has begun.
We, three midwives, are trying to share the best in each day.
The first week we shared the following technique in each day.

-Listening to subtle Qualia in the darkness of body and around the body -Bottom body
-Proto body
-Being moved Qualia
-Segmenting
-Rhizoming
-Transparency

To listen to subtle Qualia is the most important thing than other things. Because only it can erase the ego and self-intention to express something. Participants could show the deep listening in the weekend performances. Each one tried to listen so sensitively.
I was so surprised at them, it was so beautiful.
And the audiences were involved in the listening.
That was the Life Resonance theater.

What is the next?
We, three midwives, continue to listen for twenty-four hours.
What will happen in the next week?
It is so deep fun.

If I breathe out

My soul floats throughout the sky
As it turns to ashes and falls."

5 Becoming a rhizome

Become a rhizome.
Become a secret!

What is Rhizome?
It is a new way of being.
Take off the illusion of being a human and you will find the possibilities of just being a life very flexible.

Rhizoming technique is a technique in order to become a rhizome.
<Rhizome> is the oppisite concept of <Tree> that has hierarchy.
All hierarchy that has top/bottom, center/edge is common illusion that human made. In the Universe, there is no center, no top. Universe and nature is the rhizome acctually. Rhizome can connect freely and separate flexiblly at any point.
To become rhizome means we become nature with taking off all human illusions.


1. Control the body at a subtle level

Rhizoming is a technique of transformation that begins at one part of the body, then infects a neighbouring part, and spreads to the whole body/mind.

In the darkness of the body, non-dualistic multiple dimensions are streaming and changing. If we watch this directly, we cannot understand what is happening, because there is too much chaos.
By slowing down, we can differentiate within the chaos. We can choose a subtle qualia, follow it, and amplify it to the maximum. By cutting the whole process into thousands of moments and stopping time, we can see more clearly what is happening within the process.

2. Various Rhizomings

There are seven ways of rhizoming:
1) Bottom rhizoming; a transformation that starts from the bottom.
2) Top rhizoming; starts from the head.
3) Centre rhizoming; starts from the centre of the body.
4) Edge rhizoming; starts from an edge, like a finger or toe.
5) Charm rhizoming; in the middle of a bottom or centre rhizoming process, another power influences the movement, and the movement changes to another stream.
6) Strange rhizoming; in the process of top or edge rhizoming, another power disturbs the process, changing the movement in a strange way.
7) Random rhizoming; starts at random points of body.

3. Eight channels Rhizoming

When subbody is streaming in the darkness of body, it has multi channels Qualia, it does not separated into any channels.
But when it comes out with noticing by the consciusness, it has to come out through a channel, because or consciousness can recognize a signal through only one channel at the same time.
Then our multi channels qualia have to change into a channel stream with shrinking.
That's why a stream comes out through fifferent channels, for example, dream , syndorome of body, subbody movement and so on.
We need to control these process between multi channels qualia streams to passing through single channel to another channel in the time process to show whole Qualia.

4. Tree/Rhizome change

Subbody stream seems to change shape and qualia from a channel to another channel. But it is a illusion only for our consciousness, because the consciousness can recognize qualia through only a channel at the same time.
Then we need to show our subbody movement with changing from a channel to another channel for informing the whole channels qualia to others.
We have to be a transrators from multi dimensional rhizome to lower dimensional tree movement.
To become a subbody means to become rhizome and transrator between rhizome world and tree world.

5. Opening another dimension

Subbody method has a specific changing technique as a 'opening another dimension'.
Like a dream change the scene from a scene to another scene without noticing by consciousness, our qualia stream are always changing and streaming in our darkness of body.

A subtle signal of onther dimension which was folded in a dimension is unfolded, and comes out gradually until to open whole of another dimension.


6 Transparent mind and body

When you get the whole techniques above, you can see the whole process transparently which is happening in the darkness of body between the body, subconsciousness and consciousness.
It happens not in stillness body, but in moving body.
When you dance your subbody butoh movement with changing from a dimension to another dimension dynamicly, you can see everything so transparently.
It is the transparent mind.

And when it is possible to show everythng to the audience with resonance riken.
Resonance riken means to watch the whole process in performing from outside, including the resonance with audience.
Everything is resonating between dancers and audience in a short moment.
Then with using resonance riken, you can controll the Jo-Ha-Kyu timing with subtle control.
When you get this resonance riken, you can becoem a transparent body which it is able to show everything transparently.
I do not know how long time we will need, because also I am middle on the way to be a transparent body.
