Project Plan. I believe in learning-by-doing process, it allows me to reach an open-minded approach and understanding of limits, space and personality. My intension is to learn about Ankoku Butoh from local creators: Natsu Nakajima, Yoshito Ohno, etc. I will try to look at it through the ”inside” perspective, in other words, (re)search Ankoku Butoh through dancing. As Natsu Nakajima said, ”(…) the idee of Ankoku Butoh is based on such body ideologies as ”the extra-daily body” or ”strip off the individual or social identity” and return to the body as a natural entity”. This concept turned into the spine for the ”9 mono” (re)search. ”9 mono” – 9 bodies danced in 9 different spaces of Tokyo city. It will be implemented together with co* iki and local community.
