Butoh Body Sundays, September 10, 17, 24
1474 N. Milwaukee Ave.
“How are our ancestors held and released in our body? Ancestries of plants, animals, and humans.” Mitsu
Mitsu’s class will draw from Butoh, contemporary dance, and experimental theater, exploring the connection with body, unconscious and imagery.
The class will focus on Noguchi exercises, which foster an experience of the body as water with the goal of encountering and releasing the natural body. We will also investigate Botany, body-weather, and animals (real and imagined) through guided imagery and structured improvisation.
All levels welcome and please wear comfortable clothing.
