Dancing at the Edge of the Skin
February 23 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm£15.00
This course builds upon the legacy of Japanese Butoh dance through somatic dance practice, Tai-ch’i, free improvisation and choreographic experiments. Springing from the spiritual problem of ‘who am I?’, a fundamental question in the path of non-dual self-inquiry, this course unravels the inquiry through movement and dance rather than analysis or language. In this physical practice of self-inquiry we focus on a process of ‘attuning’ to what is beyond the limits of the skin and the perceived self: how can we allow our bodies to be danced? Each class begins with a physical and vocal warm-up followed by dance exercises alone or in groups as well as opportunities to observe others’ work, sharing, performing and short discussions. The classes are open to all ages (18 +) and abilities, no previous experience is necessary.
