Japanese dancer and choreographer. Born in Kobe(Japan) and trained in traditional Japanese dance, Juju Alishina has worked in Butoh since 1982. In 1990, She founded her own dance company, Nuba, in Tokyo. She has performed with her dancers in Japan, USA and Europe. Having assimilated many different styles and approaches to dance, she has developed her own unique and original movements. having created a "fine blend of traditional and avant-garde" styles. The trademark of the Nuba dance company is its paradoxical combination of shadow and celebration. While remaining loyal to the ceremonies of ancient Japan and eastern dance in general, it is an exciting new approach to Butoh.
Juju Alishina moved her company to Paris and since then has developed her own methods beyond Butoh dance and has lead several artistic and educational activities worldwide. Her dance method book "Butoh Dance Training - Secrets of Japanese dance through the Alishina method" is published in three different languages and is read all over the world.

Toshi ICHIKAWA practiced shiatsu in spas and fitness clubs for several years. He is now an independent practitioner in Paris (Cabinet DELAMBRE, Paris 14e) and teaches shiatsu to future practitioners in the FFST, in his own school.

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.

Nihon-Buyoh (Japanese Traditional Dance)

Nihon-Buyoh is the traditional art of dance and mime in Japan, which appeared in the Edo period (at the beginning of the 17th century) from older traditions. Although performed independently by specialists, this art is particularly associated with the style of dance performed by the geishas. It is a very complex dance using techniques that combine the use of the fan, the parasol and certain specific accessories.

Juju Alihsina's internship offers 6 days of work around a few pieces. his learning allows him to acquire the main techniques of Nihon Buyoh, with fan, parasol, tenngui (fabric) and bare hand.
The days start with a physical preparation then a kimono - learning and maintenance. At the end of the course, participants will practice kabuki white make-up (Make-up product supported by the company Nuba).



In the Eastern tradition, Shiatsu is a method for prevention and maintenance of good health, and it is officially recognized as such in Japan.
It is a manual technique of Japanese origin (shi means finger and atsu pressure) by which you exercise pressure with your thumbs, fingers and palms. Shiatsu is very effective and completely natural, it helps restore and maintain the body's equilibrium. It is a form of manual acupuncture (without needles), acting on the physical and the psyche.
It allows the receiver to overcome his emotional problems and release tension. It stimulates the mind and body without side effects, allowing the elimination of mental and body fatigue.
Shiatsu is based on an eastern complete medical system which explains the human body in terms of a network of meridians through which energy flows. This energy is called Ki in Japanese.
During the course, the trainer shows the basic sequence of specific movements. The participants practice on each other with the intervention and guidance of the trainer.
