CONTENT // This is a class based on Noguchi Taiso and Butoh.

In this class, we do not convey any fixed form or technique, but the principles that form the basis of movement (spiral, wave, gravity, emotion, etc.) as well as imagination. We will focus on everyday movements like standing and walking, as well as on emotional forms of expression. We will establish a basis that will enable us to exchange conventional patterns of movement for fresh approaches that will help us to move more easily.

The class addresses professionals in dance and theatre as well as amateurs of all ages.
