Feb—April, 2021 Ren Gyo Soh
I was part of a Butoh performance training course with Ren Gyo Soh. "Through this program, you cultivate your instruments so that you may access not only internal materials, but also external materials around for any creative circumstances."
"My dance is the expansion of human concept—letting a human body metamorphosis into anything including an animal, a plant, even an object which does not have a life, and the fundamental ideology of my butoh is finding the possibility." -Tatsumi Hijikata"
