Thursday Night Butoh Class

At Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts, Thursdays 7 –  9pm.
Thursday March 12th is the first of a 5-month butoh training quarter offered by DAIPAN. Full participation in the full series is encouraged, but drop-Ins are understandable and equally welcomed. Sheri Brown & guests will lead study, exercises and explorations in that enigmatic, originally-Japanese-now-global dance theatre form, “butoh,” encompassing a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement.

Embodying The Spirit: Butoh training with Joan Laage (Kogut Butoh)

This workshop explores endless questions: What is life? What is the human condition? What is the body? The structure includes exercises and exploration of physical body, elemental body, and ethereal body. The workshop draws from Joan’s training with Kazuo Ohno and Yoko Ashikawa and her background as a Tai Chi practitioner and gardener.
Friday 6-8 pm (ongoing class resumes January 10, 2014), $15
Taoist Studies Institute, 225 North 70th Street, Seattle, WA 98103
