Online One-to-one and group work starting the 3rd of November 2014

I have just finished setting up the one-to-one and group work online sessions.

If you feel on the monolithic side of things and longed for a space where you can be supported to return to a kaleidoscopic practical and pragmatic presence, then this is for you!

You don’t need to be an artist. You just have to be curious and like an embodied approach.

I will support you via skype and email providing exercises that stem from Butoh dance and my artistic experience.

You can read more about how it works clicking here and you can read both one-to-one sessions and group work.

When does it start: the 3rd of November

If you wish to partake send me an email: ambrabutoh@gmail.com

Hope to meet you!

Thank you

Ambra

Carlotta Ikeda: dancing to another life

On the 24th of September Carlotta Ikeda left our world to continue dancing in wider planes of existence.

I have never met her personally though I had the chance to study with her dancers and recently I had the opportunity to invite Yumiko Yohsioka to Moving Bodies Butoh Festival, who besides being a fundamental artist in the Butoh realms, danced in Ikeda’s company in the 70s and 80s.

Ikdea was the first woman that brought Butoh dance outside Japan and created an all women dance company. Her artistic vision brought her work to be recognised in France, where she based her dance company Ariadone –http://ariadone.fr/

I chose these videos as a celebration  and commemoration of her work and my way to pay homage to her artistic vision.

Here I am. My home and what it is all about

Hello.

I am finally home. This is my personal website. It is dedicated to what I do and to all things Butoh in Dublin, Ireland and the spin-offs that may emerge from my researches and artistic processes.

I am the director of Moving Bodies Butoh Festival – http://www.movingbodiesfestival.com – and I run classes at Dance Ireland/Dance House in Foley St. D1 every Thursday from 7 to 9 pm. You can follow me on twitter and facebook where I share ideas class content notifications and events on the wider Butoh Community.

I hope you will drop a line from time to time or come visit.

Thank you for you time and curiosity,

Autumns Blossomings to all

Ambra
