Embodying the Spirit: the body finds its way
This workshop is a process of erasing and re-experiencing the body through guided improvisation largely inspired by nature imagery.
Experience training methods towards a supple body and mind and investigate aesthetics common to Butoh through creative explorations. ETS explores endless questions: What is life? What is the human condition? What is the body? In this workshop we will focus on imagery from the Earth Tomes Project, which has been performed in collaboration with local artists in Germany, Italy, England, Norway, an upstate New York residency and in the NW in Seattle and Port Townsend. Earth imagery – earth, trees, roots, stones – will be layered with explorations of the elemental body (water, wind, etc.) as we celebrate the body as nature. Partner work will facilitate participants’ individual and collective journeys. The workshop draws from Joan’s training with Butoh Masters Kazuo and Yoshito Ohno and Yoko Ashikawa in Tokyo and her background as a Tai Chi practitioner and professional gardener
