Butoh Body, Actor Brain with Brennen Campbell

August 25 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

This performance lab will focus on Butoh dance and devising for the actor. Butoh is an anti-rational dance which explores extreme states through the use of internal / external imagery, the “dead” body, and the grotesqueButoh chips away at everyday patterns and reveals the butoh (or pre-social) body in the performer. Participants will be led through a series of butoh exercises and devising prompts to explore extreme physicality, dynamic stage presence, and awareness.
