Butoh Dance: Alchemy of the Spirit Workshop (Richmond, VA)
Butoh Dance: Alchemy of the Spirit
A four-hour workshop with Jordan Rosin
Friday, August 10, 2018, 6pm - 10pm
Dogtown Dance Theatre
109 W. 15th Street
Richmond VA, 23224

Drawing on a decade of body-based research into energy anatomy, yoga, Butoh dance, and related disciplines, award-winning physical theatre artist and educator Jordan Rosin (Intl: Butoh Medea, FringeNYC: Butoh Electra, Artistic Director Emeritus of NYCs The Ume Group) is honored to be offering his signature Butoh Dance: Alchemy of the Spirit workshop for the very first time in RIchmond, VA as part of a multi-city workshop tour of the USA this summer.

In this workshop, participants are guided on a journey of spiritual alchemy using the techniques of Butoh Dance, the post-modern avante garde movement from post-WWII Japan. Incorporating key exercises from multiple schools of the form, Jordan also draws on shamanic ritual, energetic anatomy, yogic philosophy and physical theatre to create a safe and open space for healing, deep personal transformation, and the revelation of tacit knowledge hidden within the darkness of our bodies. Performers and non-performers alike will use movement as a pre-text for deep self-investigation and gain an embodied understanding of the nature of our bodies as both objects and stories.

Benefits of the work include
- Endurance.
- Physical mobility and strength.
- Mental fortitude.
- Expanded creativity and access to the creative power of the subconscious.
- Reference points for non-hierarchical interpersonal resonance.

Participants should bring
- Clothing which allows movement.
- A flower, stone or other gift from nature to energize the space.

Cost is $40 ($30 if you register by Sunday, July 1.)


Ankoku Butoh (dance of darkness) is a style of dance and philosophy of creating total theatre originating from Japan in the mid twentieth century. Often marked by grotesque imagery and taboo themes, the main aim of the work is to reveal tacit knowledge hidden in the body, and to promote self-realization through discovery of your most authentic movement. Butoh training promotes physical endurance and expressiveness, spiritual consciousness, and creativity.
