( Natsu Nakajima )

Workshop of representation and presence. Processes and techniques conducted by Natsu Nakajima.

Presentation to the general public Natsu Nakajima's workshop and OVNI (Non-identified video observation) "Kings with Straw Matts".

Natsu Nakajima has worked more than 40 years as a choreographer, performer and teacher of Ankoku Butoh. Natsu summarizes her technique in very few words: "to go back to the original body". The workshop is developed from Katsugen, a relaxation system based on the Chi Qong that works directly the muscular mass of the body. The workshop will only use the Noguchi Seitai as an exercise and not in its therapeutic use.

Hijikata used to say: "Butoh is like a standing corpse trying desperately to bite life".
