"Butoh, since it’s beginnings in 1959, has always confronted notions of tradition, legacy, culture, innovation and contemporary manifestation. From the beginning, the key to this path has been the relentless search for the essence of art, as a refuge to our humanity." Diego Piñon

Diego Piñón’s Body Ritual Movement (BRM) challenges us to awaken and explore all human qualities ranging from the subtle to the outrageous: the beautiful and the ugly, the feminine and the masculine, the spiritual and the mundane. BRM seeks the emergence of the deeper self, to touch if only for a moment, the inexplicable matter of the human soul. Through this process of transforming our daily life through the transformation of our dance, we can offer more creative energy to our community.

BRM Trainings are both emotionally intense and physically challenging. Techniques that stimulate, expand and recapture energy from the body through the senses are used. The body is trained to awaken these sensitivities and vital energies in order to transform the limitations perceived in ourselves. A key foundation to the training is how it consciously uses a collective group experience to engage and expand this energy beyond the individual. It is from this enhanced opening that the creative and artistic work can begin to emerge. BRM proposes methods that stimulate sensory sensitivity, the imagination, and creativity to support the deep expression of each individual through movement.

BRM Training involves high-impact aerobic movement, active meditation, and guided improvisation; all embraced within a sense of communal ritual. The collective physical training consists of stretching, shaking, jumping, low-level groundwork, balancing, partnering, weight sharing, impulse exchange, bodywork, bioenergetics, breath expansion, and transpersonal communication.

Training for the spine, joints, and internal body spaces—our energetic centers—through focused breathing are used to regenerate and expand the currents of energetic exchange between our internal and external realities. Active meditation exercises are introduced to quiet the mind and awaken original, non-reactive impulses for organic movement. Guided improvisations then give participants the opportunity to integrate this newfound sensory awareness within their physical body, external environments, and the collective presence to reach new realms of creative potential.
