Everything is Vibration

The matter, the thought, the emotions, the energy, the sound vibrate, this vibration is light and love and manifests itself free in the different forms of the Universe.

Expand your perception of time and space, nourishing the Presence, the state in which we are in contact with the Being and the life. Allow dance to emerge naturally, with your breath, dance touching the deep of human soul, nourish the beauty of the present moment, letting forms become an expression of soul.

The body is a sensitive and wonderful unit, in which all parts communicate harmoniously, containing time and space within its cells, written as archetypes of ancestral memories.

Research the organic movement, coming from your roots, center, skeleton, senses, from inside to outside, nourishing the state in which you are danced. Awaken a natural body, free from social and cultural limitations.

Return to the empty body of the origins, when the body and the being are in contact with this vibrant emptiness, which permeates the creation, we are free to embrace everything, dancing the beauty and the mystery of every life manifestation. The breath expands and you can dance the various manifestations of nature, its cycles, human being; inner landscapes, art images, myths, personal and universal memories.

The birth of a dance can be a moment of opening, where to feel that a big strength and love are released, live the eroticism, the sensuality, the catharsis, the transient nature of beauty and life, the expansion of Consciousness.

The proposed preparatory training for Butoh dance organically interweaves practices from Sensitive Dance® ( a somatic practice born from the meeting between dance and osteopathy ) and various eastern practices.

The workshop will be accompanied by the live music of Tivitavi (tibetan bells, gong,

didgeridoo, drumming, stones, natural sounds, electronic sounds, flutes and voice).

Open to everyone!
