Butoh Dance Performance in Japan


 

Part of Swiss Butoh dancer Imre Thormann's performance at Hiyoshi Taisha Shrine in Shiga (Japan) in summer 2006. The live music is by Swiss jazz pianist Nik Baertsch and his band "Mobile".

 

Imre Thorman is a renowned Butoh dancer and Noguchi Taiso practitioner. He has a very interesting and honest approach to movement and dance and his practice is very inspiring for ∞OS.


In this second series of the interviews we ask Imre to share his point of view on dance: what it is, why it’s important, and what it actually means to move, to be moved, and to move others.


The implications of this approach go far beyond the field of dance: anybody who’s interested in dynamics knows that any change has a significance only when it expresses something. Expression can be measured in difference. Therefore, it’s interesting to learn about the approach to expression and movement in dance, as it can be applicable to other areas of life dealing with change: from intersubjective relations to the study of dynamical systems.


Imre goes on to remember Kazuo Ono’s (the famous Butoh dancer from Japan), who once said “dance is the prayer of instinct”. It is through this prayer of instinct, according to Imre, we can access to the inner forces that move us and discover what it’s like to be moved.
