This Butoh workshop creates a supportive environment to start an individual and collective process of investigation through creative movement. Participants start a spiritual and energetic journey to express, heal and transform hidden aspects of themselves. The work incorporates Japanese Butoh techniques, guided imagery, bio-energetics, core energetics, creative movement, improvisation, release techniques, elements of Noguchi gymnastics. This unique training is an invaluable tool for dancers, actors, adult beginners, encouraging participants to open up and expand physically and energetically.
VANGELINE'S WORKSHOPS PROVIDE AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE AND MOVE DEEPLY INTO A PROCESS WHICH BUTOH DANCE CULTIVATES, OF SEEKING THE EMERGENCE OF THE DEEPER SELF, AWAKENING LOST PARTS OF THE HUMAN BEING, EXPLORING ALL HUMAN QUALITIES TO TRANSFORM OUR DANCE, OUR DAILY LIFE AND OFFER CREATIVE ENERGY TO THE COMMUNITY.
