// 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.// “Again and again we are reborn. 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.” Tatsumi Hijikata Dedicated to Antonin Artaud, Samel Beckett, Vaslav Nijinsky, Yukio Mishima, J. J. Rousseau… and more… who inspired my thoughts and dance.

Auszug eines Textes von Tatsumi Hijikta (Begruender des Butho Tanz):
Es ist nicht einfach nur die Geburt aus des Mutters Leib.

Some aspects:To “survive” we learn how to adapt every day. Every time we passed a change by making a mutation that allows us to adapt to the new “time”, the new landscape or social condition, we find ourselves at a new time of change, having to make a new “transformation.”
Excerpt from Tatsumi Hijikta (Founder of Butoh Dance):“Again and again we are reborn.
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.”
