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.

The Alishina Method
Juju Alishinas 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 Alishinas 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
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.
We have created a new website devoted to traditional Japanese dance: dansejaponaise.fr.
