wind earth water fire life -

 Where do we really come from?
If millions years of river have built our body.
We have kept a memory of wind, earth, water, fire, animal and plants as life.
Open the door of these memories and let's transform.

Then we remember how, ten thousand years ago,
human being prays and communicates,
dance and transform into these elements.
Prayer and dance, make us remember that our life was at one with
the Earth and the Universe.

- Life of Flower -
Flower is most important element of JINEN Butoh.

Flower open life. Flower is soft body revolution. 
Flower is love.
Now we stay inside, we need to feel seed of life. 
To open to universe with passing through darkness to blightness,
passing through life and death. 

Flower always circulate life.
Flower continue opening .

Atsushi and Hiroko

“Dance is devotion to life.” 
I learned this while travelling 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 got my body from the earth.
I got my life from the sun and the moon, my parents, my friends and my love.
So I’ll return the gifts to these universes.
I’ll return them to others through a dancing body and soul.
When I see a tiny flower selflessly, I meet a dance filled with the joy of “life.” And then, my body is filled up with the water of “life.”
 The seeds of memory inside me become a bud.

The sounds of wind are 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.
As we travel, remind 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 of
 “relics of life” holding artifice and nature-on earth.

-JINEN Butoh Atsushi Takenouchi



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. 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 Italy, France, Poland, Spain, U.S.A and other countries. Since 2014, has started long term residency JINEN Butoh school  in Pontedera city and countryside in Toscana.

- vento terra acqua fuoco vita -
Da dove veniamo veramente?
Se milioni di anni di fiumi hanno costruito il nostro corpo.
Abbiamo conservato in noi questo ricordo
di vento, terra, acqua, fuoco, animali e piante, come vita.
Apriamo la porta di tutti questi ricordi e trasformiamoci.

Allora noi ricorderemo come l’essere umano,
diecimila anni fa,
pregava e comunicava.

Attraverso la danza ci trasformeremo in questi elementi.
La preghiera e la danza ci fanno ricordare come
la nostra vita era un tutt’uno
con la Terra
e l’Universo.

-La Vita dei Fiori-

Il Fiore è l’elemento più importante del JINEN Butoh.
I Fiori aprono la vita. I Fiori sono la delicata rivoluzione del corpo.
I Fiori sono l’amore.
Ora restiamo al nostro interno, abbiamo bisogno di sentire il seme della vita.
Per aprirci all’Universo passando attraverso l’oscurità verso la luce.
Passando attraverso la morte verso la vita.
I Fiori fanno sempre circolare la vita.
I Fiori continuano ad aprirsi.

                                           - Atsushi Takenouchi-
