Dance is the original behavior of the body.
Dance is before or beyond words.
Dance is play with the human form.
In this intensive workshop, Katsura Kan will share ideas about dance choreography through his “Matrix”. This is not a butoh class or lesson. Instead, it is an opportunity to do cooperative research about a “strange object”…..THE BODY.
