TOWARDS THE DEPTH OF EXISTENCE
© Makoto Onozuka
For the first time in Berlin - a program of workshop, artist talk and performance by Mitsuyo Uesugi, who is considered to be one of the best female Butoh dancers in Japan. Critics call her the female incorporation of Kazuo Ohno style, with whom she worked for over a decade.
In this workshop we search for the reality of our own existence and the way to reconnect with joy of life through movements, based on various kinds of dance basics. In order to clearly recognize the existence of oneself by seeking and meeting with new experience of body movements, participants will be lead to observe own arms and legs, skeletons and joints as just simple materials or objects, to examine again our actions in daily life such as to stand up, to sit, to walk and so on, to melt with the space through the senses of skin. Through those exercises, the workshop will lead participants to improvisation.
“I think it is impossible to learn BUTOH by workshops. But we meet because I wish the revolution of our body happen, and I believe it is meaningful to have such an opportunity to search for a new physical expression and to free our sweat and heart lively with the others!” Mitsuyo Uesugi
