Where is my Inside, where is my Outside?
Your outside is also your part of body, Because You are part of Universe.
Create into Butoh with the sense of space, the consciousness to exterior and the internal sense of life phenomenon. Internal sense; breath, internal organs, spine. External sense; sense of space, parallel sense, sensory, tacticle, visual.
To dissolve the wall between inside and outside of the self of here and now, “Soul dresses the Body, dresses the Space and the Landscape”.
You can dress old tree,
You can dress volcano.
You can dress singing moon sky. (Atsushi Takenouchi)

through the masks
white breath of dancers
During the longest night of the year, a ritual is weaved in the present, between two musicians and two dancers. The music creates the plot of the time, opening intervals where everything suspends, and where the dance becomes mirror and at the same time its reflection, where to see through masks and dreams, as in the moonlit night. Darkness generates light, light illuminates darkness, but who is looking and projecting what is manifesting? A vibrant act, beyond space and time, where the ability to wonder awakens light in the heart and the beauty of existence.

Atsushi Takenouchi http://www.jinen-butoh.com
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. Atsushi has started his own „Jinen Butoh“ since 1986 and created solo works „Itteki“, „Ginkan“ as a universal expression of nature, earth, and ancient times and impressions of the moment, meeting with people and environment. He made 3 year “JINEN” tour project throughout Japan for 600 site-specific improvisations (1996-1999). During this time, he started to be inspired by a spirit of the universe of Kazuo Ohno and Yoshito Ohno. Since 2002, he has been mainly based in Europe, working on Butoh dance collaboration project with dancers and actors in France, Poland, U.S.A and other countries.
