Florencia Guerberof is carrying out an ongoing investigation on butoh movement.

She invites dancers, actors, visual artists, musicians and anyone interested in butoh to join these research sessions.

The investigation focuses on a deep exploration of the work of Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata towards the creation of new work based on a personal interpretation, assimilation and integration of some of the movement’s ideas into the participants own work.

This project aims at opening new possibilities in the creation process. The sessions encourage a creative assimilation of the ideas triggered by butoh. The main goal is to discover a specific area of interest relevant to the dancer, actor and artist’s own practice to develop a personal physical language.

Who the classes are for
Adults
All levels, no previous dance experience required.

Class details
Project Structure
The sessions are divided in three different stages.

1. Physical Training
The centre, balance and collapse. Gravity, weight and the weightless. The body in relation to the ground. Breath: the primordial source of movement. Expansion and contraction. Inside and outside the body. Streams of energy.

2. Essential concepts of Butoh
Work through different imagery, concrete animate and inanimate objects internalizing them and translating them into movement.

3. Creation through personal interpretation
The third part focuses on discovering the relevance of butoh into the dancer, actor and artist’s own practice finding a specific area of interest to be reflected in the creation of an art piece in any media of personal choice (dance, performance, theatre, photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation, etc).
