Yumiko Yoshioka: Butoh

Butoh Workshop mit Yumiko Yoshioka

(Theater Feuerblau lädt internationale Theater- & Tanzschaffende nach Graz ein)

Unser Körper ist ein Auffangbecken der Zeit und seine längst vergessenen Erinnerungen können wir durch Tanz wieder erwecken. Durch die Erforschung unserer Vergangenheit bis hinunter zu einem Stadium von Kollektivgedächtnis können wir die Quelle der vorhandenen Ressourcen erreichen, die das Wesentliche unseres Lebens bereichern können. Ich möchte diese vergessenen Erinnerungen aktivieren, indem ich mich auf unseren inneren Kern, unsere Ki-Energie und dessen Zirkulation konzentriere.

Belonging to a third generation of Butoh artists, Yumiko has developed a personal style of bodywork called Body Resonance, which integrates Butoh practice with features of Noguchi Taiso gymnastics and various other Asian training methods to help prepare the body to receive and transmit dance and inspirations.

Body Resonance starts from the idea that the world, including our body and soul, consists of vibrational waves that create constant resonances like echoes. When we tune our body to that frequency, we receive images, feelings and sensations accordingly. For this to happen, we need first to shake off unnecessary tension.

In effect, we make a white canvas of our body to paint new colour on it.

Workshop Content:
*Release exercises, inspired by Noguchi Taiso (Gymnastics), Taichi and Yoga
*breathing exercises
*dynamic training for the flow of energy
*Butoh-related work to activate our universal memories (sensitization, combination of image and movement with antenna exercises such as figure of 8, water ball, animal, insect, snake, witch and fairy, the creatures inside us, hanging body, walking, dialogue with a partner etc)
*structured improvisation, free association

Yumiko Yoshioka is a Japanese Butoh dancer and choreographer from Tokyo, based in Germany since 1988. Yumiko is a former member of Ariadone, the first female Butoh company, which was founded by Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda in 1974. In 1978, she performed with Ko and Carolotta in Paris, LE DERNIER EDEN – PORTE DE L’AU-DELA, the very first Butoh performance to be presented in a public theatre outside Japan. In 1988 she met Minako Seki and delta RA’i in Berlin, with whom she founded tatoeba THÉÂTRE DANCE GROTESQUE. This experience, along with work with the Butoh dancer Kim-Itoh, encouraged Yumiko to start to unfold her own personal style of dancing and choreography.
