Zen, the Butoh,
The Butoh has many different qualities. the Butoh is for Antistress and relaxation, the Butoh is a discipline phisique as so intellectual, halfway enter art martiel and contemporary dance.
Born in Japan in the 60s and influenced by European avant-gardes, this " dance of darkness " at first attacked big taboos: violence, eroticism, death. The Japanese choreographers tried to express all the palette of feelings: bodies painted in white, slow movements, distorted and deformed postures which aim to connect conscious and unconscious, outside and the inside.
Today, the classes of Butoh every public propose a serene version, a source of prosperity rather than exorcisme. - A means to investigate all the facets of the being through the body, the feelings and to prop up the internal rhythm in accordance with the cycles of the life.

Control of the body, Breathing, master the gesture, learning of the release , codified chains of movements and improvisations, in duet or solo.
It’s a more than a dance, a real therapy! There are many profits on the physical plan: excellent for the back, the Butoh seeks all the deep muscles, develops flexibility and coordination while favoring a perfect oxygenation. Ideal to re-harmonize energies and to feel as well in our body as in the head.
Where you can learn the Butoh?
Company Nuba, directed by the Japanese choreographer Juju Alishina, at the Centre de Danse du Marais and at the Gymnase des Lilas.



The Alishina Method

Juju Alishina‚s style proposes a well-balanced and harmonious approach of the Butoh dance movements in all its abundance. Since 1982 Juju Alishina has developed the practice of Butoh. Her work respects the body, maintaining it in excellent physical condition. Juju Alishina‚s method is based on her in-depth research of diverse forms of Asian dance, as well as her own personal and authentic Butoh dance experiences.
This method proposes not only a creative approach to dance movement but also an initiation into Alishina's aesthetics and the phliosophy of Butoh dance expression.
The participants will find in the physical exercises a means of expression and freedom. They will be in a position of active participation and be called to think, imagine, invent, and create.The more regularly classes are attended, the more participants will benefit from the training.Accessible to all--- Novice, qualified dancers or actors alike--- Butoh can be practiced at any age. Butoh provides endless creative resources in the construction of your own personal axes.
Juju Alishina invites you to discover yourself through the practice of this art form called Butoh.
January 2010, her book "Dance Training in the Alishina Method " was published in Japan, published in France in 2013, and
published in UK and USA in 2015.
