How to catch the untouchable, move the invisible and make our body ambiguous to other bodies? Although Hong Kong has been privileged to be able to invite a number of Japanese butoh teachers in the past couple of years such as Yukio Waguri or Katsuran Kan, they have mainly hailed from the Hijikata lineage. In contrast, Taiyo Tochiak is a butoh dancer from the Kazuo Ohno tradition, and was formerly one of the principal dancers of the internationally renowned butoh company Sankaijuku.

WORKSHOP 2: 工作坊二: 妄人文明: 舞踏與延展
Wangnin Bunmei Company: Butoh & Beyond

Wangnin Bunmei

主持:石本華江 Kae Ishimoto、善哉和也 Kazuya Zenzai
Kae Ishimoto and Kazyuza Zenzai are the core members of Wangnin Bunmei, a performance group from Japan that combines butoh, contemporary dance and music.

In this performance workshop, they are particularly intrigued to explore the connection between musician and dancer. How can we intergrate music and dance? How do we balance the relationship between musician and dancers on stage? How can we connect to the space? What makes us “be” there?

Drawing on Kazuya’s experience as a vocalist and Kae’s training as a butoh dancer (she is a 6th generation butoh dancer of the Hijikata lineage), the workshop will explore how music and dance can connect on many levels using voice, movement, breath and energy.

石本華江與善哉和也都是日本妄人文明舞團的主要負責人。妄人文明舞團精於舞踏(石本華江是港人熟識的Yukio Waguri 的高徒)卻不拘泥於一家,舞團將舞踏融會其他舞蹈詞彙,廣受歡迎,獲邀到亞洲,歐洲和美洲13國演出。
