Report summerButoh workshop in Pontedera Italy           夏舞踏ワークショップレポート in イタリア


In July, we are giving 4weeks intensive summer Butoh workshop in residency 
in Pontedera at Spazio NU (Toscana/Italy). 

Each week has each theme and work. Each weekend, we make presentation of 
each participants improvisation at site specific location. 

First weekend was Butoh procession in Sarzana city. The second weekend was 
in the forest. 
And the third week .... one day at the former prison building from middle age.
And next day at historical site; Tempio di Minerva Medica from early 19th century.


With more than 20 dancers, this 2days became truly deep time with dancing, playing
sound, sharing, feeling, receiving...

Here is some photos from each place.


この7月、私達はイタリア トスカーナにあるポンタデラという街のSpazioNUにて一カ月の
夏舞踏合宿ワークショップを行っている。毎週それぞれにテーマがあり、毎週末、様々な
場所で各参加者の即興舞踏のプレゼンを行っている。例えば1週目の週末は、サルザナ市
での街中にて舞踏行列。2週目の週末はキャンピングの続きで森の中での発表。
そして3週目の週末。1日は中世の牢獄跡の建物(現在はミュージアム)。翌日は、
19世紀初期に建てられたMinervaMedica神殿にて。どちらも とても趣深い場所であった。

20人を超える参加者の踊り手とともに、この両日は真に深い時間となった。5時間踊りつづけ、
歌い、奏で、様々なことを感じ、また受取ることができた。
下記はそれぞれの写真である。

Good energy in the group, deep moments of dance, sharing, caring, feeling, moving, and there
will be various performance time at open air, site specific location, every weekend.

ashita
In japanese word, "ashita" means "tomorrow".
With the painful disaster ; earthquake, tsunami and the nuclear power plant accident in Japan on the 11th of March 2011, we have lost so many people and things as if we`ve lost everything.
We`ve been in a great sorrow, mourning to the deads, weeping to what`s lost, standing at the corner looking for a direction which leads us to our new tomorrow "ashita".
May "ashita" bright and warm to everyone enough to melt our painful memories and sorrow.
So we pray. So we wish. From the bottom of our hearts.
Let us open the gate and all the windows to welcome a new tomorrow….ashita



2011 collaboration concert tour "ashita "
The sound of belles deeply reverberates and sometime exists as melody floating through the sky. 
The sound of gongs, of the kind ceaselessly heard in the temples of Tibet, or Bali, or Japan. 
The sound of string is like flow of the river of memory. The voice is hovering in mid-air, tracing some ethereal melodic curves.
It is a world of sounds slowly echoing together, melding into one, and then reverting to an inner silence.


As the sound fades away, simultaneously, the depth of their own silence grows even greater.

In Kazuya and Hiroko's sound-world, the listeners are invited to the journey where these silent river flows, where lost memory gathers, where you may find small light as 

the beginning of next day.
