Culture Monks presents
Workshop of Theater-Dance Butoh and Voice.
Directed by Dara Siligato, performer Teacher and researcher
The workshop will develop over two intensive days, dedicated to the study and experience of these body languages
- Deep Body/ Butoh
- Body resonance
- Body landscape.
- Creation and improvisation.
The Butoh technique was born in Japan in the 50s and spread throughout Europe, becoming a philosophy of staging and the body, which takes on different shades and stylistic structures.
In any case, in all the directions, Butoh is a journey into the beauty of the essence, the authenticity of the gesture, the strength of the poetry body, opposed to virtuosity or techniques.What we want to offer during this workshop is a starting point,a poetic vision that will be supported by exercises and composition practices.
