The Dance of Intimacy
Butoh Dance
June 26, 1-5pm
Instructor: Constance Humphries
Cost: $25

In this 4 hour workshop we will practice seeing and being seen through the lens of intimacy. Participants will make the invisible visible, learning more about the vulnerability of the body and mind. Through movement, we will find pathways to explore space, time and place and play with structures for improvising where we can witness and participate. Skills include release techniques and experiential anatomy to better understand the mechanics of the body. Additionally, we will work with patterns, imagery and perspective to create dances that are dynamic and alive in the moment.

Delivered in an approachable atmosphere which enables groups and individuals to develop and practice in a positive and challenging environment of serious play, the workshops are suitable for everyone, including actors, dancers, live/performance artists, musicians and anyone interested in exploring butoh as a means of creative investigation.

All aptitudes and abilities are welcome. No previous experience required. Participants are encouraged to work at their level.
