Asian Performing Arts founder, Florencia Guerberof is leading an intense dance theatre training. The sessions explore Butoh, a Japanese Avant-Garde movement originated in Tokyo in 1959 by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, and investigate its relevance in a contemporary context.

The practice focuses on breath as a vital force animating the body. The dancer encounters a resistance moving in-between opposite forces.

The building of a structure leads to its destruction and the dissolution of the self. Form and spirit unfold in a process of transformation.
