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.

I offer a weekly butoh course at Volkshochschule Frankfurt (VHS) and workshops multiple times per year. To be informed in time about registration and dates of the course or workshops, sign up for my newsletter. The course at VHS is given in German spoken language, but translation for some words or phrases into English is always possible. If you are interested, contact me. On request I also offer workshops, in both English and German.
