Japanese Butoh Dance for the Actor
“Butoh is how you use your imagination, how you make your own journey and how you discover it.”
Butoh can encourage the actors to explore their imagination in depth; not only mentally but more so physically which Butoh offers in its technique and practice.
It allows performers to work presently in the moment and move through their body as the images are moving through their imagination within their consciousness, whilst also stepping into the unknown parts of their physical beings. Participants will create movement choreography convey a story to an audience and how to utilize text into the imaginative mind and body.
Participants should wear baggy/ comfortable clothing to enable free physical movement and the workshop will be done in barefoot. Please bring a monologue (on paper) on a character you would like to explore in this way.
Venue: Drama Space
