Would you like to know more about yourself?
Would you like to do it, developing your questions, dancing?
I invite you to know more about Butoh.
You will have this opportunity through Dance Tarot Butoh Classes. An encounter between self-knowledge, dance, performance and oracle. During three sections the participants will have techniques of butoh dance where the beginner will have material to take their first dance steps and at the same time experienced dancers will be able to deepen the expressive layers of their dance.
The meeting will be divided into 3 moments:
- Bodywork: Meditation, massage, and stretching (1h)
- Butoh training, dance, exercises (1h)
- Tarot and oracle dance session (1h). During the session, the dancers will be invited to take out a Tarot card. After the opening of the oracle, the participant receives the reading of the letter and suggestions for a Butoh Dance.
The music is mixed live according to the oracles by Will Lopes.
The work goes through layers of Jungian Psychoanalysis, transpersonal psychology, Art therapy, Butoh Dance, performance and contemporary Artistic expression.
Improve yourself dancing!
