Butoh was developed in the 1960s in Japan. Its origin was founded by and Kazuo Ohno. Since then, the dance spread and took different forms.

My focus is creating a space for the open-minded exploration of your creativity. We start with meditative emptiness/fullness and absurd stories/series of images (butoh fu). Without judgements like good/bad, beautiful/ugly a dance between dichotomies comes into being, a process of transformation and discovery. Techniques from somatic body work and Qi Gong help your whole body to resonate in dancing, with yourself and the outside. Various Butoh techniques enable you to recognize and review well established patterns in thought, movement, and behavior; to consciously go into new roles/processes; to discover your creativity and liveliness; to go your own path.

Butoh is suitable for every person who wants to venture going on undiscovered paths and be surprised by themselves. Bodily limitations are no obstacle in Butoh, but rather a spark that can inflame your creativity.

The weekly course is on Tuesday evenings, takes 90 minutes and costs 20 € per class. There are spots available and you can join with prior consultation. On request I also offer workshops. If you want to be informed about new classes and workshops, please sign up for my newsletter.
