SYV & BUTOH

I have been studying and performing Butoh since 2010 and this unique art form has become a support for reflection and transformation.  

 

I mainly trained at the Subbody Butoh school in the Himalayas.  And attended other trainings by Yukio Waguri, Natsu Nakajima, Atsushi Takenouki, Eiko and Koma, Vangeline, in New York City and Japan. 

 

​I draw inspiration from Nature, introspective practices, and the experience of pain.

I started Butoh while I had cancer and fibromyalgia, and these life experiences have shaped my Butoh practice. 

My work is a process of re-discovery, of remembering and telling personal and universal stories.

I see the body as an incredible doorway to knowledge, transformation and healing, like a bridge between the present moment and other inner worlds. Through the dance, I open doors to dive within ourselves.

Butoh brings freedom in expression and in the way we perceive ourselves, which can be truly liberating. More than a dance, Butoh has become a life style in an intimate relationship with my body and my environment.​
