2016Atsushi Takenouchi residency
6days JINEN Butoh workshop
in nature of the Pyrenees ( South France )
***English text below
Le Butoh n’est pas une technique, c’est un désapprentissage,
c’est être vivant dans l’instant, du ressenti au mouvement,
parce que dans l’instant tout est inclu.
Je sens le soleil sur mon visage, le vent sur ma peau,
et mes atomes se souviennent de la fusion au coeur des étoiles,
de leur voyage dans le vent.
Je sens la fleur sous mon pied, le lézard qui me regarde,
et mes cellules se souviennent.
Du danseur au dansé, du personel à l’universel,
de l’instant à l’éternité

Butoh is not a technique, it's an unlearning,
it's to be alive in the moment, from feeling to movement,
because in the moment everything is included .
I feel the sun on my face , the wind on my skin,
and my atoms remember the fusion inside stars ,
their journey in the wind.
I feel the flower under my foot , lizard looking at me ,
and my cells remember .
From the dancer to the danced, from personal to universal, from the moment to the eternity
