We need a high energy for this intensive work. It requires strong wills of the participants.

– Workshop
This workshop is based on “Butoh-fu (“fu” means score in Japanese)”. Butoh-fu has been transmitted orally by Tatsumi Hijikata. His choreographic method aims “to physicalize images through words,” and those words are called Butoh-fu. Every word of this notation has its own choreographic meaning for the performer. The mold of Butoh-fu is very strict, but there is also a lot of blank space entrusted to a dancer. Butoh-fu can provide a vast image for an artist. We will also build up strong bodies and voices by using the training based on Suzuki-Method Actor’s Training. You have to control strictly your own body in order to be free.
