Butoh For Now
Embodiment in the Age of Pandemia
September 2020 – January 2021
The Butoh Body-movement practice was born out of the devastation following the atomic bombings of Japan in 1945. This authentic expression heals.
- is an online movement course in Body movement for adults serving humanity,
- meets the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of professionals in human change,
- addresses Pandemia in embodied ways as a new way of learning,
- cares for potentially harmful and sedentary states of being,
- provides a space for Pandemia to become an era of integrated human experience,
- is for everyone who yearns for meaningful guided and witnessed Body-movement,
- is for the philosopher of the Body inherent in everybody.
Pandemia expresses a clear moment affecting all life on the planet. It spans beyond a virus into a different reality of the world. Humanity is at an accelerated pace to redefine itself. Words such as survival, sanity, stability, common sense, judgement, clarity and health, and a deepened humanity foreground the media and conversations. Our way of being embodied is now at stake.
Butoh for Now responds to this time on our planet as an expression of sensible embodiment, a felt sense of awakening and emergent wisdom in simple and easy ways.
This course is now closed to participants.
