Atsushi Takenouchi Butoh performance and workshop (HK,2020 April)

竹之內淳志舞踏演出及工作坊 (香港, 2020年4月)

當我們想到獨舞或獨腳戲的時候,許多舉手投足的瞬間,觀眾不禁被表演者的「存在感(Presence)」迷住。當我們講即興的時候,會視「動機(Impulse)」為關鍵詞,總不難發現追隨動機的表演身體有着「一瞬間時間好像靜止了」的能力。重點在於不要錯認「動機」為想法、概念或計劃,「動機」在這個語境底下是與當下有關的,無關呈現,卻有着真實的觸感。如何在即興之中做到隨心所慾而不踰距,身體作為一切動作的源頭,何不回歸身體思考,脈動作為行動而不是大腦想好了再行動。

 

做有着「即興」意味的創作,不止需要一個淬錬的框架,還需要功夫了得的演者及敢於實驗的精神。舞踏 (Butoh)作品將以上三種特質完美演繹,今次特邀旅居意大利的日本舞踏大師竹之內淳志,將會分享舞踏技巧及創作心得,務求讓大家以舞踏作為手段去探索個人舞動創作的可行性及可能性。竹之內老師首次訪港,除了分享5天工作坊外,還帶來一個巡演歐洲的獨舞作品《Embrace》,萬勿錯過!

When we think about solo performances, those beautiful moments always associate with presence or being. The most basic and most crucial ingredient for improvisation was to follow the impulse, therefore with such a form, the essence of a human body remains and the performativity of a body ravels.  It is important to note that an impulse is not an idea, thought or plan, an impulse under this context, can be described as a “sudden wish or urge that prompts an unpremeditated act or feeling”. To be able to build on what is present roots in the fact that only available resources can be used for improvisation; and for a mover, the only available resource is the body and the working frame.

 

To make an improvisational performance possible, a dedicated frame, the ability of the performer and an experimental spirit are required. Butoh Dance Performances cope with these with their own disciplines, and they beautifully bend improvisation into a performance.  By introducing an Italy-based Japanese Butoh dance company - Atsushi Takenouchi JINEN BUTOH, hopefully to offer another possible way of solo performance making and also seeing. 

 

Last but not least, this is the first workshop and performance of Atsushi Takenouchi in Hong Kong, while he has been running JINEN butoh school in Pontedera (Italy) for more than a decade, dont’t miss out!
