“MOVING BODIES Butoh Festival – Italy Ireland Scotland 2014″

40Moving Bodies Butoh – www.movingbodiesbutohfestival.com 

is a touring festival. The concept developed thanks to the artists we encountered during the previous festivals edition. In 2013 we had the pleasure to collaborate with the Firkin Crane – Cork- and Galway Dance Project – Galway – and meeting Paul M. Henry a Butoh artist from Glasgow, Scotland. With Paul we decided to strengthen the North West European pole of Butoh dance. Our attempt, as stated in our mission is to make Butoh accessible from every walk of life, as Butoh is not solely a practice confined to dance or performance, but a practice that can be beneficial on many levels, personal and work-related.

The tour will start in Teatro Espace Torino  on the 12th and premiere in Galway offering workshops; at the Firkin Crane in Cork from the 17th to the 19th of July. It will go to the CCA-Glasgow for the 23rd and the 24th and return, to conclude in Dublin from the 26th to the 30th July. View the promo video here: http://vimeo.com/94378754

We are supported by Dance Ireland Dance House, Firkin Crane, Teatro Espace.

    I would like to personally thank all the performers and producers of the Dublin sessions, your work is truly beautiful in the most human way possible and has shaken me into some of the illusive sates of being I feel you have tried to capture in your work, I cannot express my appreciation for the love and spiritual illumination your work embodies and I wish you great happiness and many moments of bliss
    In Lak’ech Ala K’in Namaste
    P.s I’m happy you now carry the blue stone, give it to someone some day.
