< JINEN Butoh 6 month monthly weekend course>

6 months – Plants bloom the flower, bear fruits, and give seeds. Each person’s dance, each existence of body, each movement is also transforming through this 6 months. We would like to share and spend this process, this opportunity together.

Finding your inner movements and connecting them with your Butoh dance. This is the work of blooming flower.
Next, you once make withered the full energy from flower, and mature it. Then extract your own Butoh movement and condense into one seed.
This one seed is your own Butoh piece. Through extracting, condensing, you will meet the most important Butoh element for you. 
This is the work of producing seeds.
Seeds of plant is a gift of flower life to the next generation of nature. In other words, it is a gift to nature, to the universe, to return all your life.
Audience receive this gift. What the audience want to see ultimately is the truth of your life that will not hide.
This is a single flower that bloomed in a moment on the stage from the seed of you. 

 


6 themes of this course 

The 1st – <Inside and outside >
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 the inside and the outside of the self of here and now,  soul dresses the body, dresses the space and the landscape.



The 2nd < The memory of life and transformation >
- Think about time until today which has started from the Big Bang. If the time until now is a growth of huge single tree, we might be a leaf of the tip of a branch. This tree was a stone, wind, insect, fish, sea, the earth, moon. One leaf forget that this huge tree is a body of its own. All the memory stays within our body. 



 The 3rd < Light and shadow>
Growth and decay, night and day, static and dynamic, life and death. As night and day is necessary to all life, opposing these elements exist as of the ins and outs of one life. How we can experience these elements as one. 



The 4th< Existence >
Your existence stands on the stage as a life. This is also the ultimate proposition of the performing art. It is to stand as the truth of your life. We will image and start create your own Butoh piece from this work of existence. 



The 5th < Seed>
To find a seed from millions of flowers. It means that we extract a seed to create own work from millions of possibility . The important is we once need to face the wither of flower. Through facing death, we will discover seed. In this work, we progress creation and start imagining own costume for your work.


The 6th < A flower >
If the seed is a creation of work, we should transform the seed into a flower in one moment on the stage. You find Butoh here, you find miracle of life on the stage. And this is the truth, and the flower of truth.

"If we wish to Heal the Earth, we must allow ourselves to be Ridden by Nature."

The Film
Ridden by Nature is an ode to the natural world. Deeper still, it is an impassioned call for humanity to awaken to its connection to Mother Earth in this time of planetary crisis. This film is about opening people's eyes and hearts-especially those of children-to see themselves as caretakers of Nature, the source of life that supports us. If you believe, as I do, that this is a truly vital message, please read on and support this important campaign.
I began making this film ten years ago as an independent art project that came to life when I began to explore the ancient Japanese dance style of Butoh. Together with Butoh master Atsushi Takenouchi, I had the vision for a film that would capture live Butoh dance performances set in some of the world's most remote and extreme landscapes. The powerful scenes and images help to create a visceral experience of humanity's interconnectedness with the potent forces of nature. In this way, the dancers are channeling the pain of Mother Earth through an act of healing and love that is deeply moving for the viewer.
 
In an era of climate change and widespread ecological devastation, films like Ridden by Nature are necessary to awaken people to their role in this deepening crisis-as well as their power to reverse it. Now it is time to share this message with the world. Finally completed after a decade of work, we are moving forward with marketing and distribution. 
As this is an independent feature and a true labor of love, we are reaching out to our community of like-minded supporters and visionaries to raise the necessary funds for marketing, press and publicity. We are dedicated to giving this film the greatest possible visibility and impact. With your help, we can bring Ridden by Nature to people around the world who can benefit from its heart-opening message.

Thank you for your support!
Kathi von Koerber

                                       © Konronsha



Performed on June 13&14, 2013 at Espace en Cours in Paris 
Butoh ; Atsushi Takenouchi
Live music ; Hiroko Komiya (object sounds, voice)
 Miho Mizumachi (tin whistle, low whistle, melodion, tibetan bells, voice)
 Katsu Mizumachi (bodhran, noise, bouzouki, jew's harp, voice)

"Skin"
 Does my skin separate me from the external world?
 Magma, underground bedrock, surface soil, the atmosphere, the magnetosphere; the layers of the earth. Membrane of cells, internal organs, muscles, bones, and the body, a wave of emotion, a layer of energy, aura; the inner and outer layers of our body.
 Perhaps there is no boundary between my environment and me.  There is only the sensation from the many layers of skin. The life of the moment, the dance begins with this layered sensation.

"Skin"
皮が私と外界を分けているのか?
地球にもマグマ、地下岩盤、表土、空気の層、磁気の層がある。
体にも細胞の皮、内臓の皮、筋肉や骨の皮、そしてこの体表の皮、
空気で感ずる感情の波動、気やエネルギーの層、オーラの層。
何処からが私で此処からが外界など無いのかもしれない。
あるものはこの幾層にも重なった皮から感ずる感覚だけ。
その場に置かれた生命が、皮の感覚を頼りに踊り始める。



At Espace en Cours (Paris) - Jeudi 13 et vendredi 14 juin 2013
performance organized by ARTRACE

Archive 3 / 2013 July 3wks JINEN Butoh workshop at Spazio NU - site specific performance -

Photos from the archive of 3weeks summer residency JINEN Butoh workshop at Spazio NU in Pontedera/ Italy .
- Site specific performance -

Each moments, each dance had a deep and intimate meeting with the spaces, the memory of the place, sound of the ancient buildings, color of the air, emotion of them. Dance and dialogue together, feeling through the body, extend the time and space, transform and be itself.

performance at temple of Minerva Medica in Montefoscoli, at  the palace and former medieval  prison building in Vicopisano, and town square and market square in Pontedera city.
