CRIME AND PUNISHMENT I
6 days Butoh workshop and theatre experiment with 4Rude
This workshop is based on "Butoh-fu ("fu" means score in Japanese)". Butoh-fu has been transmitted orally by Tatsumi Hijikata. His choreographic method aims "to physicalize images through words," and those words are called Butoh-fu. Every word of this notation has its own choreographic meaning for the performer.
The mold of Butoh-fu is very strict, but there is also a lot of blank space entrusted to a dancer. Butoh-fu can provide a vast image for an artist.
We will also build up strong bodies and voices by using the training based on Suzuki-Method Actor's Training.
You have to control strictly your own body in order to be free.
In this workshop Maco und Hikaru Inagawa will develop together with the particpiants a Theater-Butoh piece. The piece will be based on the novel „Crime and Punishment“ by Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
4RUDE has developed and performed a workd based on this novel it as a trilogy in Tokyo in 2005-2007. This trilogy was approached from theatrical side to the literature, in this workshop we will experiment in the approach from the Butoh.
We need a high energy for this intensive work. It requires strong wills of the participants.
The final presentation will be held on the last day of the Workshop.
