August 10th – August 15th, 12:00-18:00
(Showing on August 15th at 19:00)
Studio2/Mime Centrum Berlin, Mariannenplatz 2, 10997 Berlin

In this workshop we learn the Butoh method and also experience creating process of Theater-Butoh piece. The motif of the performance is the novels by Franz Kafka.

We need a high energy for this intensive work. It requires strong wills of the participants.

 

--------Workshop--------

This workshop is based on "Butoh-fu ("fu" means score in Japanese)". Butoh-fu has been transmitted orally by Tatsumi Hijikata. His choreographic method aims "to physicalize images through words," and those words are called Butoh-fu. Every word of this notation has its own choreographic meaning for the performer. The mold of Butoh-fu is very strict, but there is also a lot of blank space entrusted to a dancer. Butoh-fu can provide a vast image for an artist. We will also build up strong bodies and voices by using the training based on Suzuki-Method Actor's Training. You have to control strictly your own body in order to be free.

Language: German, English, Japanese The text about Butoh-fu is available in English and German.

--------Performance--------

Maco and Hikaru Inagawa make a Theater-Butoh piece with the participants through this Workshop. That piece based on the novels by Franz Kafka.
