Contemplative Dance Workshop
With Denise Fujiwara
A dance workshop to open up possibilities for your body and mind. Using Japanese Butoh and post-modern improvisation dance principles we cultivate embodied mindfulness through movement. With simple directions, we’ll move with curiosity, expanding creativity and movement capacity. This work can be done at many levels and challenges both the beginner and experienced mover. Start from where you are and find joy in your movement.
Body Resonance Workshop
With Yumiko Yoshioka
The main focus of this workshop is a conscious research of our body/mind/soul unification, so we can deeply enjoy the intrinsic process of metamorphosis in the spirit of dance. Through a continuous exploration of our past collective memories, we can strike a vein of abundant creative resources, enriching the essence of our life. The body is a receptacle of time. Body resonance is a key to opening up the doors of an ever-changing world inside and outside of ourselves, which helps the body to unfold its secrets, holding them up until they shine and tremble. Everything is in resonance with each other. Through a dialogue with our body, we can learn to be moved by inner and outer forces, thus realizing we are a part of the Universe. A dance of metamorphosis inevitably appears.
