senses in Butoh

Enjoyed exploring the sense of touch last week in class.  Used a range of human touch and the textures of a wide variety of objects.  These exercises received with eyes closed were unnerving and strongly disconcerting.  (I almost wished I hadn’t brought them !)  We used these experiences as stimuli for movement and built on these to include communication between dancers. We will be continuing exploration of touch and other senses in next classes.
