Cartographic Score – Sign Gesture Fragrance…an online movement dance practice for creative development

Leave a comment

I have been experimenting the online thing. I was initially sceptical on how we can do, create, come together online. Then I realised I have been joining nine years online Sadhana practices and I know they have been very enriching experiences and also, gave the opportunity to get to know many people around the world that probably, I would have never got the chance to meet them personally, face to face, body to body.

So, I run a year of beta classes. And to my surprise the challenge I initially thought I would have had to encounter, transformed into a rich and great opportunity. GOing back to the primal architecture of the body, and one of my utmost love: bones.

Bones for me are the architecture of existence. A stone. The primordial stone.

I decided that it was the perfect opportunity to go back offering a training that started from micro-movement and bones, and how together they open to our internal poetic landscapes.

Like the unveiling of a secret internal cartography, this online practice came to life.

This is the course I offer. An online at one’s own pace, weekly class that merges experiential theory and practice stemming from Butoh percepts.

A sign, a gesture and fragrance. To make sure we can fully enjoy our intimate personal and unique embodiement, movement dance research and poetic manifestation.

Classes are mostly on a one 2 one basis or max 3 people per session; this gives me the chance to be present and give all my attention to the process and research.

The aim is to provide a space to release explore and discover a new cartography that can support and be considered the foundation of new creations, even if you are not a dancer or artist. A space to come close to our primal architecture and explore how every micromovement generates and relates to others. To unfold our inner relationality. This, supported also by the use of essential oils, to provide that enriching experience of somatic understanding and exploration.

The course is structured in the following way:

sessions last 1.30h and are held weekly. Some on Zoom, others via video tutorials. You receive a welcome pack that has the programme, costs and initial materials. You receive one email per week containing a work book and diary that will help supporting the log of the knowledge you will generate and your creative process. If will form your own unique cartography.

I will set up a private fb group for participants to share and I will pop in to prompt lines of enquiry and participate to the conversations.

Sessions – every email content – are on a Wednesday between 8 -11am or 8-10,30 pm and can be arranged at a different time, privately.

If you think this process can interest you, I look forwards meeting you! drop an email to receive your Cartographic Welcome Pack here: ambrabutoh@gmail.com

I hope you are all keeping save and in love,

Thank you!

Ambra
