//  We learn how to adapt every day to “survive”. Every time we passed a change by making a mutation that allows us to adapt to the new “time”, a new landscape or a social condition, we find ourselves at a new time of change, having to make a new “transformation.”

The desire to walk, fly or to be “something else” makes “alive” the body, wich is free to find its new form, its new path stripped of any automatism and mechanisms acquired by education.

The eyes may be as a lake of water in which every desire falls, like a stone, generates waves which propagate over the entire surface, from the center up to the skin, up to its prolongation. That is the projection of the desire, the projection of the body moved in resonance with your “inner landscape”.

The propagation of this “desire” outward to the cosmos is the dance of the soul. Mirror of a memory that goes beyond its own, a collective memory that lives in our cells, our molecules, which before having gathered in our bodies have traveled and lived many mutations.

We are danced by the universal memory. Our body becomes a window in the mirror of the cosmos.

It is not enough simply to be born of the mother’s womb.
Many births are necessary. Be reborn always and everywhere.
Again and again.”

VALENTINA FERRARO war eines der meist abgebildeten Gesichter der letzten “ART BASEL”, nicht zuletzt durch ihre Zusammenarbeit als “Nude Performerin” fuer Marina Abramović. Zudem war sie mit einer eigenen Performance Gast bei der ersten Edition des vielbeachteten GO!C!A!RT FESTIVAL in der CARGOBAR, dessen zweite Edition im Juni 2013 folgt. Nun ist sie zusammen mit dem bekannten Performer und DJ/ Musiker FRANK CASTRO erneut und exkluisv in Basel in der Cargo! Nœud / Cocoon – ist eine experimentelle BUTOH DANCE PERFORMANCE.

Einige Aspekte:

 “Ueberleben” lernen wie jeden Tag. Jedes mal, wenn wir eine Veraenderung erfahren, machen wir eine “Mutation” durch, die es uns erlaubt, eine “Neue Zeit”, eine neue Landschaft oder Soziale Form zu erfahren. Wr befinden uns in einer Umbruchzeit, eine zeit der Transformation.

Auszug eines Textes von Tatsumi Hijikta (Begruender des Butho Tanz):

“ Immer und immer wieder werden wir wiedergeboren.
Es ist nicht einfach nur die Geburt aus des Mutters Leib.
Viel Formen der Geburt sind wichtig. Ueberall geboren und wiedergeboren werden. Wieder und immer wieder.”

Acerca de Valentina Ferraro

Born in Palermo 25 October 1981. Graduated in Fine Arts at the Polytechnic University of Valencia UPV (Spain) where through various disciplines such as painting, drawing, engraving, sculpture, photography and video, has maintained a common unity to her research and interests for the metamorphosis of forms. She developed her research through performance focusing on the body as a primary matter, and most direct way to express herself artistically. Her encounter with the world of butoh is finally the key to continuing this research on the body and its perpetual mutation, more and more in connection with the Soul and the Origin. Trained in butoh from 2002, first with Sayoko Onishi (New-butoh) then with various choreographers such as Marie Gabrielle Rotie, Imre Thormann (butoh and Noguchi Taiso), Masaki Iwana, Ken Maï, Sachiko Ishikawa, Gyohei Zaitsu, Atsushi Takenouchi (Jinen butoh), Yukio Waguri and Yoshito Ohno. She creates different choreographies as "Mi feminino" (solo 2005), "Upside-down Flower" (solo, 2006), "Yokai" (Octuor 2008, for "Collapse Art" company, Nancy),"kotodama" (solo, 2009), "Kamigami No Si" (trio 2010, presented at the festival "Obuxofest 2010"), "So(S)ciety" (solo 2011, submitted in Butoh festival Barcelona, “GO!C!ART@Cargo” Festival in Basel and “Festival Danza di Cinfine” in Sarzana). In 2006 she founded "Nanae :: production" and organizes conferences, workshops, performances and meetings of various kinds, related to the dance-theater, in collaboration with different international artists. During the last years in Spain, has conducted regular courses of butoh dance and soft gymnastics. In 2010 she started collaborating with the Cie "Orian Theatre" directed by Mehdi Farajpour. And along with Frederic Le Salle founded the " Cie Mangeur de Lune". Contact: - nanae.butoh@gmail.com - 0039-3384216560
