We were lucky to be selected from numerous applicants to perform on this big stage with great sound and lighting systems. There will be 6 different groups, each allowed up to 20 minutes on the stage.

We have created a new work “Somewhere in Between”. I will be performing my original dance and Christopher will be playing live trumpet and electronics.  We hope you can join us with our own contribution to Culture Day.

Time: The evening starts at 6pm, we will be 3rd, scheduled for 7:30pm.

Bridget Scott’s Butoh Workshop #3

Our friend Bridget writes,

On 24th July I will hold the third in my series of monthly butoh workshops at Ichijoji Shukaijo - an old dojo in Ichijoji.

We will begin with a good warm up and then do some butoh image work, followed by pair work, some choreography and improvisation and finally a warm down.

My workshop will be inspired by my work with my teachers Katsura Kan, Min Tanaka and Kazuo and Yoshito Ohno as well as and my own experiences as a performer for over 20 years.

The workshop is open to anyone who is interested in expressing something with their body and exploring butoh ideas and movement.

No experience is necessary. Wear clothes that are easy to move in.

Here is the basic information:
