WORKSHOP: From Image to Movement. Visualization in Butoh dance by Leonardo Sbabo

WORKSHOP: From Image to Movement. Visualization in Butoh dance by Leonardo Sbabo

Through guided and free visualisations, we will embark on a path of the embodiment of the inner image.

How to transform visual inputs into dance?

How to use visualisation as an engine for physical creation?

If one allows the body space to act, one can understand many things about the deeper state of consciousness and one’s psychological and energetic blocks. Putting them into dance is the necessary ritual step to transmute them through magical action.

In this workshop we will explore imaginary places within ourselves to notice emerging bodily impulses. Through the absence of movement, we will enhance its roots, and through the reduction of our being, we will welcome a dance that originates elsewhere. We will then work with the body and the elements with an alchemical and symbolic but also material and concrete approach, stimulating a dream-like perception capable of creating a personal and ritual dance.

We welcome everybody interested in researching new sources and modalities for body expression, whether you are a dancer or beginner and want to explore evocative and cathartic capacities of the body.

Leonardo Sbabo is a performance artist and Butoh dancer focusing his research on ritual dance and ontological and embodied queerness.
Alongside various physical explorations, he devotes himself to studying human cosmologies, mystery practices and esoteric knowledge to release the multidimensional energy dormant in all bodies.
