The Dancing Corpse – into the wilderness
Butoh Dance • Intensive Workshop • 13.-17. November 2013
Butoh Dance | Intensive Workshop | Mirjam Morad | 13.–17. November 2013
Butoh is a Japanese avantgarde and spiritual dance form that developed in the late 50s.
Butoh is not only a way to dance, but a way to live – NOW. The dance is about opposites such
as creation and destruction, life and death, woman and man, beauty and ugliness, brightness
and darkness, heat and cold, … extremes we also find in the desert.
Inspired by surrounding nature we will start mirroring the
outer and inner landscape. The individual Butoh dance
process of inside – outside starts and your very own movement
will emerge. A new dance is born through body
perception, inner impulses, images, feelings, emotions,
voice and form till transformation. The workshop will enable
you to find your own body reality and body presence while
resonating, reflecting and improvising.
Date: 13.–17. November 2013 (Duration: 30 hours)
The workshop will take place in the studio and
in nature. Partly accompanied by live music of
