Workshop: Butoh Workshop with Sakurako
Sun 12th May 2019 @ 10:30 am - 2:30 pm£15
Sakurako, Director of Lithuanian Okarukas Dance Theatre, studied Butoh intensively with various masters in Japan, she now combines contemporary dance with Butoh practice, creating a unique and interdisciplinary approach to their work which is in demand worldwide.
As part of Transgressions 2019, this workshop, led by members of Okarukas Dance Theatre, will explore the main elements of Butoh and is suitable for anyone interested in exploring ways to find more authentic movement as well as new ways to access physical language including actors, dancers, live/performance artists.
The 3.5 hour workshop enables participants to immerse themselves in the experience through exercises and tasks that all make up the main elements of Butoh, such as metamorphoses, dance through imagery, presence, alignment, awareness and the tension between opposites.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to attend a Butoh workshop in the Yorkshire region.
“As an actor, I found the Butoh workshop that I attended incredibly useful when auditioning for a role that was very physically and mentally demanding. Within my introduction to the artform I learnt how to have a stillness and focus yet create an energy that was almost tangible. Exploring the concept that something internal was leading movement within my body as opposed to myself making that movement occur was another useful tool when auditioning for this particular role.” –Tara McKeown-Actress and Hull Dance Assistant Producer
