Sinking into darkness of the body
Ramesh, forever! / Rhizome Lee and cobody 
July 14, 2017

Ramesh, forever!

A week after I heard the death of Ramesh, I danced Ramesh at the Forest Park in Rotterdam. A lot of memories overflowed over 20 years spent with Ramesh. Among them, especially, in the desert of Rajasthan, the bodily sensation of Ramesh at the moment when sudden cerebral hemorrhage occurred came to my body.
How many times have I danced the dead?
Swarn friends, Yamazaki, Tsuji, Hashimoto, the dead of the Pacific War, the deceased of Auschwitz, a strange death on the streets of Delhi, the dead of Fukushima 3.11 ....
Through dancing the dead and I become one.
The darkness of my body is full of the dead. It's as if their playground.
Little by little, it gradually approaches the country of the dead.

 I can not find a word. There are too many memories.
It is me who was jokingly saying "We want one Ramesh in every family." Potato prantha was the best. I am sincerely grateful that I could spend the same time and I pray for the souls

Ramesh was a wonderful friend, care taker and healer
at Subbody Butoh School. He treated every student with such care
that we often took him for granted. It is hard to imagine Subbody School without Ramesh. I love him as my brother. Ramesh, rest in peace.

咸 & 癇 -Two KAN


(Kan) of Zamami and (Kan) of Tatsumi Hijikata

Both are rarely used words, but it is an essential concept that forms the basis of Beauty for two persons.


(Kan) of Zeami


Zeami who was a founder of Japanese Noh dance, had investigated in what is the Beauty of Noh dance.

In his "Kadensho (What is Flower)" written in his age 40's, he defined it by three elements: Flower, Interesting, and Rarity.

But, in the later years, he said that in the previous difinition, it was still bound by the work of human heart, when we recognize it as "Oh, flower blooms!   Interesting! or Rare!".

But, There are moments that we are unexpectedly moved by something spontaneously without the work of heart such as "Flower!", "Interesting!" or "Rare!".

"What is it that Life is moved without the work of the heart? "


Normaly we use the word "( Kan)" to express to feel. But, it is work of human heart, he had to invent a new word (Kan) to express it, He delete a Heart (心)form the character of that means to feel.


He had to invent a new word <>(Kan).

It is just Life Resonance that is transmitted from Life to Life beyond the function of the human heart.

He had met the secret of the Beauty It is Life Resonance itself.


(Feel)- 心 (Heart = (Kan, Life Resonance)



Based on this (Kan=Life Resonance) beyond the work of the mind, he established "the dual illusious Noh dance to go and come between this world and the other world in his late age.

The (Kan) is directly transmitted from Life to Life without word, and without mind.

He finally found that the essence of beauty is the Life Resonance itself.


Tatsumi Hijikata's <癇の花 Flower of Kan>


On the other hand, Tatsumi Hijikata pursued novel beauty, after undergoing various experiments of dark butoh at the young age.

He who worked on the creation of "Weakened body butoh" that reduced all dynamic movements from his dance. And finally reached to the ultimate beauty called <癇の花 Flower of Kan>.

Flower of Kan is a novel, very sensitive beauty swaying between this living world and the dead world. Life becomes weakened by accumulation of various Life Resonances; attacked, invaded, forced, eaten and so on between Life and the world.

Sometimes the mentally or physically disabled Life shows a special beauty momentary that is not able to resonate well with the world.

Tatsumi Hijikata called it as <Flower of Kan (癇の花)>

"The eyes of rocky cicadas"

Some concrete image to explain the flowers of Kan shows what id Kan?

"Butoh is not an expression, not expressing raw emotions and feelings as they are.

We swallow it once.

Then chew and wait the ferment until it is brought up to a beautiful wine.

Wait and wait and grance by the eyes of rocky cicadas that sunk down into the rock.

That is the Butoh of Life. "


In "Hoso-tan" (1972), he performed the near death Life which was eaten up by pimples, with a dragging crawling movement.

In the solo of "Girls" in "Summer Storm" (1973), "Quiet House" (1974), Tatsumi Hijikata could dance together with his dead sister who could not dance for many years.

Among them, crawling on the ground,

Hijikata danced <Flower of Kan> by a subtle last moment of Life.


Beauty of Transparent Life Resonance


Zeami's < Kan> and Hijikata Tatsumi's <癇の花Flower of Kan>, both of them are swaying beauty of Life that fluctuates between life and death.

They discovered the ultimate beauty as Life Resonance transmitted from the Life to the Life.


How can we create the novel beauty of Life Resonance in this contemporary world?

What to do is just question the Life.

Ask you Life, "What do you want most?

What difficulties do you encounter?

What are you asking for?"

The answer will be reply by the subtle tremor or fluctuation of Life at some part of your body.

Listen to life and move according to the subtle Qualia, and listen to Life again.




and listen.


In this simple listening repetition, the seed of a fine Life Resonance technique to come is germinating.

 Listen, move, and listen / Netherlands
25 June, 2017

Listen, Move and Listen

The Eurasia Resonant Butoh Tour 2017 has begun at Rotterdam, Netherlands.
We started it from Listening.
Listning to the subtle invisible Qualia in the darkness of body.
Listen, and if you catch subtle tendency at a part of body, move with following the tendency, and listen to subtle Life Resonance Qualia again.
During dancing, keep listening constantly.

When we concentare on the listening, it is so beautiful.
Why the listening is connect with the beauty.
It is a mystery, but probably the figure of listening to the deep Life Resonance Qualia is
able to lead the audience to the listening itself.
We don't know what are we listening, We cannot explain it by word what are we listening.
The Life Resonance Qualia are invisible and so subtle.
The way you listen to something you can not see is perhaps human beings take off human clothes and listen carefully to their lives. It is listening to the mystery of life and the awe.
Dancer's listening is able to involve others into the listening to the Life Resonance. It is beautiful.

My teacher, Ramesh forever!

Ramesh, who was the greatest teacher of Llife Resonance for me, was gone yestersay.
Age 48 years old, by a cerebral hemorrhage.
In the first Indian tour three years ago, since becoming hemiplegic by cerebral hemorrhage, although he has a strong vitality who has overcame the crisis many times, truly Ramesh has finally exhausted.
Since the construction of the Subbody Resonance Cram School, Ramesh has supported me as a teacher of the Resonativity and as my right arm for 15 years.
Ramesh could see the attitude of a person and immediately understood what he wanted and instantaneously extended his hand to support. I have been saved so many times.
It is because I touched upon the beauty of his rich Resonativity that I started thinking that <Life Resonance> is the most important thing in Life.
Even though Ramesh died, Life Resonance Art will live forever.
He will continue to be my teacher.
Ramesh, thank you for a long time.
Please sleep in peace.

What to learn from handicapped people


"Master, Ttsumi Hijikata said.

"Butoh dancers have to learn first from the handicapped person's gesture.

They are not disabled.

On the contrary, a healthy person who is unaware in his / her every move is in fact a prisoner of a narrow body view and is inconvenient.

Following this teaching, the disciples brought a bent convulsive movement to the dance. That was the basis of Ankoku Butoh." (Natsu Nakajima)


Yes, exactly!

The Subtle listening technique which is trying to share on this summer tour is to learn from the handicapped people.

Every time the handicapped people move one body hardly, they listen to the body,

grasp what changes happened and focus on the next stroke.

It is the very essential technique to learn from them.


Our Life is always resonates with the inner cosmos and outer cosmos through subtle Life Resonance Qualia.

Slowly move a part of your body, and listen to what Qualia changes on your body . And resonate with next Life Resonance Qualia.
