Butoh Residential Workshop 13(Fri) -16(Mon) December 2013舞踏合宿ー歓喜・喚起・換気 KANKI
on the Wimmera River, 15kms West of Horsham Lead By Yumi Umiumare with Anthony Pelchen
The aim of this workshop is to expand body awareness, deepen consciousness and unleash internal expression though a response to landscape. This 130-acre site near Mt Arapiles allows participants to move between bush, sand dunes, open fields, river and elevated rock, opening up the senses to color, texture, sound and form. Over the weekend, Yumi will introduce various methods of Butoh, Chi/Gravity & Focus exercises, breathing methods and creative expression, as well as encourage a deep consciousness of well-being. Body practices and drawing in nature act as powerful counterpoints and as opportunities to filter one into the other, strengthening the links between the external environment and the internal landscape.
Anthony Pelchen, a visual artist, will guide a dynamic session of collective charcoal drawing that taps into this and the overall energetic build-up over the weekend.
