Love My Heart is a Butoh dance piece evoking everyday stories stored in our heart. Thought of as a walk through the heart, it engages with visions, emotions and imaginaries that relate to and spring off from what to dance, listening and witnessing the heart, means. The piece is approx 35 mins
Butoh is a dance practice that originated in Japan with Ohno and Hijikata, partially inspired by German expressionism of the 50s. This dance can be partially defined as non-representational, outside of formally arranged choreography. It is a dance that relies on the human and life itself. Practically, the dance engages with visions which allow becomings and transmutations. Butoh is mindfulness, it is “in every day’s work” (Yoshito Ohno), it opens your eyes to experience the beauty of things by acknowledging their circle of evolving, blooming and dying.
