workshops and classes


Ongoing training and explorational workshops continue to this day. > The workshops combines Butoh, physho-physical training methods and Asian shamanistic trance dance. > The workshops incorporates a training methodology that aims to develop spontaneity, letting the body find its own individual language in psycho-physical expression. > Ultimately the dance becomes the expression of the body as it finds itself and its own movement. > This is a process to return to the body to the creative energy that inspires movement. > Rather than aspiring to an aesthetic ideal, the dancer attempts to expose elements of life through exploring the most fundamental physical and psychological elements.

Classes will incorporating continuing training methodologies, experimentation and improvsation.
General focus includes the themes of 'effortless movements', 'quietitude' and 'stillness' and introducing different level of trance focuses. The common thread to shamanism would be the focus on trance states in movement aesthetics. The classes are ongoing and autonomous with your own style of physicality. We experiment different ideas and often end the class with a session of improvisation within a structured space.
