Upcoming performances and workshops:
BUTOH + SHIBARI Workshop - RISING LOTUS
Mahalla Ritual at Mahalla, Berlin
19th March 2023
The workshop, led by Coco Katsura (Shibari artist) and Carmen Lafran (Butoh dancer), offers an introduction to butoh and shibari and how to combine the two in a performative way. You will dive into a place of trust and letting go of resistances by deeply experiencing your perceptions and sensations, exploring freedom into limitations. You will learn basic butoh exercises and images and some foundation of shibari art. Combining the two together you will be led through your own journey of death and rebirth. We have to go through the mud to find the lotus blooming on the surface of the water.
We offer a safe place to learn, experiment and improvise. Everyone with or without experience in butoh or shibari is welcome to join.
