STAGE INTENSIF DE DANSE BUTOH
du 23 au 27 avril 2008     avec Atsuchi TAKENOUCHI



 Le Butoh nfest pas une technique, cfest un désapprentissage, cfest retrouver lfêtre en nous dfavant tout conditionnement; cfest se lever pour la première fois, sans bras ni jambes, juste lfappel impérieux de tout notre être à aller vers le haut; cfest partager sur la scène de notre vie ce qufil y a de plus essentiel, de plus épuré...que dans un pas transparaissent toutes nos joies et  toutes nos souffrances.   Le Jinen butoh, cfest le butoh de la nature sauvage, Totale, embrassant les formes multiples et merveilleuses de la nature, ainsi que ses forces de destruction, les guerres, les tremblements de terre...    A lfintérieur de Jinen, la force de vie, sentant leur appartenance à la respiration de lfunivers, embrasse la vie et la mort,  et danse une prière.  En plongeant dans la mémoire de lfévolution inscrite dans chacune de nos cellules, dans notre mémoire archaïque, se relier et être le vent, les pierres, la pieuvre, la feuille morte, le soleil... g Les graines de mémoire bourgeonnentc les sons du vent, des minéraux, de lfunivers, dans lfexplosion ou la tranquillité, entraînent nos âmes vers notre monde inconnu et nos danses oubliées.h

|Connection between JINEN and body and yourself-

All life is born of this earth. And originally human danced on the ground of this earth.
It is important to find out and to be conscious of our body as a part of this huge circulation.
This time we will work on our body movement to recognize the connection between
nature/environment and yourself through Atsushi Takenouchi's JINEN Butoh training. And he will
guide us how to create dance from this awareness, and it enables us to know that we can change
all the environment into dance.

During this term, we will explore body gravity, movement and balance, imaging body,
transformation by internal and external state, visible and invisible, various walking, conscious
and unconscious movement, a dialogue between body and an environment, with basic Butoh practice.

Meeting with the nature in the Pyrenees / south France, we experience the connection between
your body and nature, and also experience the environment as a part of your body. We discover
how the body movement arises and becomes dance.

There will be morning classes, afternoon classes and improvisational dance in nature and in the studio everyday.
The classes will be with live music made by Hiroko Komiya. Atsushi will lead our work into the creation of
each participant's short solo/duo piece. On the last day, there will be the participants' presentation
in nature or specific outside location.

*** Participants can bring costume or material for the last presentation.
***The Workshop is meant for dancers, actors and performers. If you are interested or if you
have any question, please contact to Nicolas Raynaud.  Contact address is in the below.


Atsushi Takenouchi Profile
Atsushi Takenouchi joined Butoh dance company "Hoppo-Butoh-ha" in Hokkaido in 1980. His last performance
with the company "Takazashiki"(1984) was worked on by Butoh-founder Tatsumi Hijikata. He has been working
on his own Jinen Butoh since 1986 and created solos "Tanagokoro", "Ginkan", "Itteki" as a universal
expression of nature, earth, and ancient times and his impressions of the moment, formulated from the people
around him, and the environment. He toured Japan between 1996 and 1999. He also studied a spirit of
the universe under Kazuo Ohno and Yoshito Ohno. In 1999 he toured Jinen Butoh "Sun & Moon" and led Butoh
workshops in Europe and Asia for six months. Since autumn 2002 he has been mainly based in Europe for
one year arts fellowship funded by a Japanese government. And he has been working on Butoh dance
collaboration project with dancers and actors in France, Poland and other countries. 2005 July, he
presents his solo performance "Stone" at Theatre Golvine in Avignon. And choreograph a Butoh procession
with twenty dancers through Avignon city in the festival.

" Dance is devotion of life" I learned this while my traveling nature fields called JINEN. This has
never changed since old times and will never change. This means I should dance to "my life", to the moment,
and to now which lasts forever. I've got my body from the earth. I've got my life from the sun and the moon,
my parents, my friends and my love. Then I'll return the gifts to the universe. I'll return them
to others through dancing body and soul. As I see a tiny flower selflessly, I meet a dance filled with a joy
of " life". And then, my body is filled up with water of " life". The seeds of memory inside of myself come into bud.
The sound of winds is the whispering of the earth. The sound of minerals is the muttering of
machines. We hear the sounds of the universe through explosion and noise and stillness.
Oh, thousands of sounds, take our souls far away to our unknown world. Travel with reminding us of forgotten
dances. On the sun and the moon, there are young men singing eternal songs at every place in the world.
Let's begin an ancient and modern fete at " relics of life" holding artificial and nature on earth.
