About Butoh Dance Workshop

Butoh is an immersive dance form originating from Japan and dubbed the Dance of Darkness. These workshops offer a method of embodied psychological practice, designed for people seeking to explore a creative way to express the memories, dreams, and possibilities hidden in their own body. It also offers a unique method of training for those interested in making performance work.

The training aims at acquiring body awareness through a set of exercises focused on coordination and disarticulation, dissolving of tension, balance, grounding and visualisation. This nurtures the flow of inner images, desires, conscious and unconscious memories and dreams, and our ability to perceive body energies. The goal is to unlock the imagination-body, giving rise to the unique dance within each of us.

Everyone is welcome, with no experience needed. We are not performing for each other so much as dropping our daily body habits to uncover the imagination hidden beneath.

Paul Michael Henry and Alessandra Campoli are seasoned Butoh dancers and teachers. Between them have trained with many of the best known Butoh masters alive today, including Yoshito Ohno, Yukio Waguri, Akira Kasai, Masaki Iwana, Kayo Mikami, Seisaku & Yuri, Tadashi Endo, Yumiko Yoshioka, Imre Thormann, Yuko Kaseki and Gyohei Zaitsu.

These workshops are a synthesis of these experiences and their own research. These workshops are open to all with no prior experience necessary. We're keen to welcome those of all body types, abilities and needs. Discounts available for block-booking for regular students. Please email paul@paulmichaelhenry.com for details.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Butoh Dance Workshop are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
