Description Of Opportunity:

Butoh workshop in nature
Three days intensive butoh practice in a beautiful green hilly region (700m) in Italy. The workshop will be guided in nature and in studio. We will alternate dance, meditation and walk. “Dancing The Entanglement” is based on the artistic research by Damiano Fina about Füya Butoh and Queer Pedagogy, that involves butoh dance, queer theory, quantum physics and aesthetics. This workshop is for performers or for person who has a spiritual training back-ground, please attach a simple motivation. If you have no training back-ground you can participate contacting us with a motivation letter.

“Dancing The Entanglement” inspiration

We are part of the performances that set the conditions of the possibility and impossibility of mattering. We are part of the performances that enact what matters and what is excluded from mattering. This is quantum physics and butoh dance at the same time. In this rhythm we have no special position: we are part of a not-merely-human universe. We are relevant and irrelevant at the same time. Being, acting and thinking queerly is this disclosure. All bodies come to matter through the world’s performativity. All bodies emerge from entanglement. Let’s dance existence together!

Workshop Facilities: Location, Accommodation and Food
