Event description

Description

Butohsf presents Mari Osanai from Japan this March 2018

This is a unique opportunity to explore the Noguchi Taiso work with a master teacher. All levels of experience are welcome.

Noguchi Taiso (Water Body movement) has been widely appreciated and incorporated/integrated into Butoh movement practice.

Mari Osanai’s workshop focuses on Noguchi Taiso combined with the influences of her early training in Tai Chi, western dance methods, traditional folk dance in Aomori, Japan (her birthplace), and the connection between one’s thoughts and sensation of weight. Osanai’s approach to movement research and exploration begins with a heightened awareness of gravity’s influence on the body and the body’s connection with the center of the earth. Exercises in the workshop train the body to embrace its weight and heighten its sensitivity to move from its most relaxed and receptive state. Starting with images, such as washing the body with water, air, sunlight, workshop participants will discover the body’s vital energies rooted in its inherent hydrodynamics. Movement and form result as participants ingest imagery inside their bodies and allow the changes to shift the body’s interior.
