Tuning In, Being Moved


Butoh-inspired workshops

Next workshop: Sunday November 24th as part of the IAHIP 2019 workshop series.

These workshops use elements of Butoh dance to explore perception and expression of unconscious material. The unconscious includes parts of ourselves that we repress out of our awareness, deny or try to hide. These aspects may feel socially or culturally unacceptable, or may have had to have been repressed to keep us going through a childhood where parts of our personality weren’t accepted by our parents. Using transformation - one of the most important elements of Butoh - the workshops provide a structure and permission to explore the hidden parts of ourselves and bring them into our awareness. This practice helps us on the way to becoming more whole.

When we are relaxed and tuned in to our body, we can follow its impulses and give them expression. Connecting with your inner world, we allow dances to manifest from stillness.


  • space to explore, express, transform and play;

  • a chance to slow down and find inner stillness;

  • a structure in which to explore presence and creativity;

  • the opportunity to know yourself better through your body.

“Since each and everyone of us is born in and of this universe, we’re linked to every single thing in it. There’s nothing to stop us from reaching out and touching the entire universe.”
-Kazuo Ohno, Butoh dancer, from Kazuo Ohno’s World: From Without & Within
