Butō atelier: the dancing eyes of skin (6-7-8 July 2018)
With the aim to create tradition, we launch this year the Butō atelier to open up the inner land through the exploration of the body as a unified subtle sense.
On the path of butō the self recognizes itself as a spatial entity than a personality, and so creates the receptivity for life resonance. Butō (舞踏) does not follow definite forms, it is poetic in its nature, and for this reason it is difficult to grasp it in an explicit way. Poetry brings us closer to the essence of butō. As a spatial entity that indwells in space, your body is a whole perceptual system that unify details.
In our practice instead of being a predator of perception, we create the space for receptiveness and a silent observer to let the language of movement unfold itself.
The duo of RhythmosNoir invites you to share a poetic movement practice through becoming explorers of our subtle sense. Dance in butō for us, is a light through a kaleidoscope that comes alive when the mindbody becomes a passage between the present moment and the inner land. This path is not about “knowledge production”, but about the process of discovering, and in a way unlearning, in every instant.
We believe, it is through movement we recognize our known spacetime, a movement holding certain vibrating rhythmic patterns, where poetic rhythms can be sensed in their free expression.
In short – the atelier is about our subtle sense and living poetry
The butō atelier calls those who are interested in writing or/and express poetry through the body, those curious to find their unique dance, and those wishing to connect with their inner land.

The RhythmosNoir duo, Darinka and Edo have throughout their wanderer lives lived in various cultures, experiencing several dance and mind-body techniques around the world.
Darinka is a buto dancer, researcher, curious of the spatial relations between movement and the environment.
Edde is traveler poet, butō dancer, a teacher of yin yoga, who has been studying various shamanistic ways, and seeking to transcribe the alchemy of nature’s spirits onto the moving image.
Both have been influenced by Japanese butō. Dance for us is a natural safe passage, a gate-less gate in-between worlds.
