We will dance with the trees, flowers,wind, rocks, the red earth, ancient olive forest,sunset on the hill, dancing with stars with voice.And also dance with mother sea and sands on the beach and in the water, transforming into the sea life.

The classes are accompanied by live music of Hiroko Komiya (object sounds, voice and percussion).
Where do we really come from? At the time of the Big Bang, all forms of life composed on single and unique entity. If those hundreds of millions of years have built our body, we should have kept a memory of when we were water, earth, wind, fire, plants, animals, and also many forces of nature inside of us. Open the door of these memories and let’s try and dance, transformed into those elements. Through dance, let’s remember that our body was at one with Earth and the universe. Life, under multiple shapes, is linked to everything, and represents a dancing presence.
All life is born from the earth. Humans have always been dancing on this earth. It is important to re-discover our body as a part of a great cycle. In this workshop we will work with our body’s movements to recognize the connection between nature/environment and ourselves. Atsushi will guide us how we can re-find our inner movement as Butoh,how to transform our entire environment into your Butoh.
