DANCING WITH DEATH: A Belated Halloween Butoh Workshop

The first half of this practice will focus on warming up with basic Butoh
movement techniques that will lead into working explicitly with themes of
Death, Darkness, and Decay in our dance experimentation.

The second half of the workshop will focus on dancing with and for
ancestors and loved ones who have passed. Participants will be guided
through a loose ritual structure to create an embodied offering, honoring,
or whatever else you wish or happens on its own. Participants are invited
to bring any objects, clothes, flowers, etc. that remind or are connected
to those who have passed.

WHEN: Saturday, November 9th, 3pm-6pm

WHERE: The Window Room in Southwest Philly (exact address given in RSVP

$20, pre-registration required by e-mailing victoria... at gmail.com

*This workshop is limited to 7 participants. *

This workshop is facilitated by Victoria Maria, a butoh-inspired artist
whose work is often connected to a spirit of experimentation, somatic
healing processes, relating to flora/fauna/fungi, and a background in
theatre directing/performing/teaching and hypnotherapy. Please see
