Publisher’s Description: 

Drawing on avant garde and classical Japanese dance traditions, the Alishina Method offers a systematized approach to Butoh dance training for the first time in its history. With practical instruction and fully illustrated exercises, this book teaches readers:

basic body training and expression exercises

exercises to cultivate Qi (energy) and to aid improvisation

about katas (forms) and how to develop your own

the importance of voice, sound and music in Butoh

to collaborate and be in harmony with others

techniques to manipulate time and space

how to develop the imagination and refine the senses to enrich performance.

This authentic approach to Japanese dance will be compelling reading for anyone interested in contemporary dance, performance arts, Japanese culture or personal development techniques.
