Introduction to Butoh Practice-Impulsive Body (DAN2180.01)

Kota Yamazaki and Mina Nishimura, MFA Teaching Fellow

No previous experience in dance or movement practice is required. This course is open to any students who are interested in investigating a relationship between their impulse and movements, and where those impulses come from. By studying some principles and practices of butoh, which originated in Japan as a contemporary avant-garde dance form, we aim to liberate ourselves from pre-fixed images of our bodies and search for alternate and original ways of approaching them.
