An inner voyage Butoh dance workshop

As my artistic background is based in Butoh dance I want to share an inner voyage approach to improvisation.

In this workshop, we will use the expressive form of Butoh to create absurd and fantastical dialogues in the fields of feeling. By dancing we turn into story-tellers whose bodies create an affair of the in-between, clasped by moments of spirituality.

We will examine these fields of feeling by taking positions and by jumping into emotions. We will also become aware that a little taste of dominance and submission can make us more playful.
