Why <Resonant Rhizome>?


Taking off the illusion of "Human", and becoming Life.
Then we can be aware of the moment when Life glows its original shining.
It is because the trap of ego and self make it difficult to notice it.
I have always asked to Life, have been asking the same question to Life for over 20 years.
"What do you really want to do?"
Only when Life do what Life really want to do, it presents the extreme glow.
Listen to your Life and follow the subtle tendency.
Life does not like being forced by power of hierarchical order such as director, choreographer and teacher, economic and political circumstances and so on.
Life does not like being attracted not only by their external forces, but also by the ego driving from the inside and the impulse of self.
Ego is the strongest Archetype in the present age, though we do not notice the fact, because everybody is bound by it.
We constantly need to be aware of to perform <De-self> that keep releasing ourselves from the ego's prisoners with watching ourselves from the distant eyes on every moment.
Life is only by becoming transparent it can demonstrate its infinite creativity, originality, resonanativity (resonance ability), not restricted by either internal or external forces.

<Resonant Rhizome> which was found out of trial and error over the past decade, is one of the most ideal methods to realize it.
<Resonant Rhizome> is a mechanism that co-creates everything just by Life Resonance.
There is no fixed leader. There is neither the center nor the top and bottom.
Each of us becomes a rhizome that can survive and create by alone like a wolf, and freely connect and flexibly separate at any time.


We co-create everything through Life Resonance by taking a flexible role transformation. Someone in the herd, sometimes initiating, sometimes promoting, and following flexibly without a fixed role.
It is a very simple mechanism, but it can open the infinite potentiality of creativity of Life.
People who experienced <Resonant Rhizome> notice that everyone is shining as completely free Life.
We are still an infantish stage, but let's deepen this together.
Our future is on this path.
Guys to become Life. Come to Himalaya!

Recomended Books
for studying subbody method
 
 
Gilles Deleuze/ Felix Guattari

Thousand Plateaus
(Mille Plateaux in original French)


In 1968, French philosopher Gille Deleuze and German psychiatrist Felix Guattali, presented a new concept of
<Rhizome> that is able to separate flexiblly and connect freely and become multidimensional transformable being, instead of <Tree> that is bound by hierarchical order of recognition and behaviors that supported long human history so far.

Deleuze-Guattari's "Thousand Plateau" is one of the most important Butoh texts.
The complete form of the book was published in 1980.
However, Chapter 1 "Rhizome" was written and published around 1968 and was immediately translated into Japanese and other language. I read it in the 1970's. Why does a book that was written far from Japan becomes Butoh textbook? I will tell the secret behind the Butoh and "Thousand Plateaus".

Life Resonance in 1968

The year that they wrote this book, 1968 is the year of the world revolution with student power in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, USA, Japan, and around the world, tens of millions of young students have stood up to change the old hierarchical society.
It was a miracle of Life Resonance that happened across the Earth's borders. Also a miraculous synchronicity occurred between Tatsumi Hijikata and Deleuze=Guattari, based on that global universal Life Resonance. They wrote or performed the same thing at the same time.
Deleuze=Guatari found a completely new behaviour pattern in the student's movement against hierarchical
<Tree> system, and crystalized as <Rhizome> as a sprouting form of Human being of the future.
Only a few generations at that time experienced this miraculous Life Resonance. And it was forgotten.

<Becoming> in "Thausand Plateaus" and Hijikata Butoh

When I emigrated from Japan to Himalaya in 2000, I disposed of a million books and bundled only five books in Himalayas. One of them was this book. I have read carefully over the past 20 years for "Thousand Plateau".
It is recommended for young readers mainly to read chapters 1, 2, and 10.
Deleuze=Guattari wrote this book together, but the other chapters r than the above 3 chapters are probably written by one of them, and the other one checked it.
But, these three chapters were written with them by being ONE LIFE through very deep exchanges.
Density is overwhelmingly deeper than other chapters, and full of pleasure and brightness that Life finds novel movement patterns.
The keyword of the book is <Becoming>. It is exactly the same as <Becoming> which is the root of Butoh.



Become Rhizome!
Become a Secret
!


Chapter 1
<Rhizome> is the essence of this book which predicted the transfiguration of humans in the near future.
Chapter 2
< Becoming Wolf> has deepened it specifically.
Chapter 10
<Become Intensity, become animal, become a thing which can not be perceived>, develops it all the way further.

There are written various pathways to become a rhizome, becoming manifold, becoming a woman, becoming a child, becoming an animal, becoming a molecular state, becoming a thing that can not be perceived.
What we can not perceive is called as <chimera> in Greek.
Hijikata became Shisha that is able to transform infinitely and nonsharansly in his last solo performance "Quiet House".
<Becoming> in these chapters is the same as <Becoming> in Butoh which Hijikata performed at the same time.
If you compare the "Quiet House" of Tatsumi Hijikata with the "Thousand Plateaus" of Dleuze=Guattari, you will be able to see miraculous world simultaneous Life Resonance beyond the boundary there.

In Himalaya, I have been exploring Subbody Resonance Butoh and its practical development <Resonant Rhizome>.
Now I can say that someday in the near future we will await a miracle moment that Life Resonance occurs worldwide at the same time in the global scale, through the radically free co-creation of Life called <Resonant Rhizome>.

Becoming Wolf / Adam and cobody 
November 11, 2017

Become Wolf!
Become Bee's swarm, Mole's tonnel!
Become Rhizome,
and a Secret!


Adam mailed me.

"I've been reading Deleuze's A Thousand Plataeus, and in his 2nd plataeu (one or several wolves) describing his "becoming-wolf" he describes something that immediately made me think of a free-resonance sort of creative cobody"


"I am on the edge of the crowd, at the periphery; but I belong to it. I am attached to it by one of my extremities, a hand or a foot. I know that the periphery is the only place I can be, that I would die if I let myself be drawn into the center of the fray, but just as certainly if I let go of the crowd. This is not an easy position to stay in. It is even very difficult to hold, for these beings are in constant motion and their movements are unpredictable and follow no rhythm. They swirl, go north, then suddenly east; none of the individuals in the crowd remains in teh same place in relation to the others. So I too am in perpertual motion; all this demands a high level of tension, but it gives me a feeling of violent, almost vertiginous happiness. (page 29)"

I replyed.

"What's a coincidence!
That part is what I just am going to recommend you.
There is the deepest secret and mystery of subbody and cobody.
I have continued to research it for 20 years.
Please try to guide to that cobody to the various participants.
So many rich hints, you must get.
'Mille Plateaux' is one of the most interesting Butoh text. I believe so."

At the last Friday theater, Adam and cobody danced the "Becoming Wolf", and it became a dynamic <Resonant Rhizome> that everybody expanded the space and passed through with dancing.

"Wow! The is the real <Resonant Rhizome>!
Finally you got it!"


My dream is coming true that the world starts dancing and changing to Rhizome!.

Researching the necessity of your dance

Why do you dance?
Why do you need to create?

to research in it, the best way is to find your 10 problems, and letting them to devour you.

"I usually solve my problem, by letting them devour me." (Kafka)

This is the same way of "Bug's walk" of Hijiata.

Bugs walk

1. A bug is crawling on the back of your right hand,
2. A second bug is creeping down from your left side of your neck to your back,
3. A third bug is wriggling up along your inner thigh,
4. A fourth bug is squirming down from your left shoulder to your chest,
5. A fifth bug …   Ah, where is it?
6. You're so itchy, here and there. You can’t stand still. 
You're pushed away from here by itchiness.

7. Itchiness under your chin, itchiness at the base of your ears, itchiness around your elbows, itchiness around your kneecaps, itchiness around your waist,   Ah! There're five-hundred of them!
8. Around your eyes, around your mouth, in your ears, between your fingers, in every mucous membrane.    Five thousand bugs
9. A bug on every hair,
10. A bug in every pore,
11. From there thirty thousand bugs are crawling down into your guts and eating them voraciously,
12. Having eaten them up the bugs are coming out of your body through the pores,
   Now they are eating the space around your body,
13. Now the bugs are full of the outer space and eaten by another kind of bugs,
14. The condition is being eaten up by another-another kind of bugs.
15. ( Half a billion bugs on a tree. The inside is all gone. )
16. It is your end. ( The will has transformed just the bug or the sense of material.).  

 

"Bugs walk" has many layers to deepen.
The first stage of Bugs walk is just dance as the text.
Bugs moves you. Bugs eaten up you. Bugs change the world.

The second stage of it, is to put your own Qualia into "Bugs".
Your own Qualia moves you. Your own Qualia eat you. Your own Qualia change the world.

The third stage is to put your problems into "Bugs".
Find ten problems of you.
Your problems moves you.
Your problems devour you.
Your problems change the world.
When a problem eats Life, Life always accept it as a twisted Qualia, and response it with reversing the twist.
When your ten problems devoure you, Life will try various <Reverse Twist>.
ten problems devour you, and Life do the <Reverse Twist>.
Dance all of them.

In that chaos, you must get a deep Qualia for your Life.
It will guide you to the very reason of your dance, and your necessity of the creation.

 It's Rhizome under the Tree
November 6, 2017

Tree-Rhizome method

There are infinite patterns to shift from Tree to Rhizome , and Rhizome to Tree.
We investigate in the infinite possibility of it this week.
It is the first experiment to research it in the Subbody history.

We are not caught in the Tree, and not stuck with Rhizome.
It is not able to become free truly, until we can come and go freely among the both worlds of Tree and Rhizome.
Now that scientists all over the world are captivated by a dualistic Tree logic, only we are doing this adventure in the world beyond the Tree and Rhizome.

We become subconscious mode and remeber the forgotten memories of the transformation among Tree and Rhizome.

We research with subbody and cobody in the interesting transformation among Rhizome and Tree and share it each other.

We can research it in the Solo, Duet, Trio and various numbers of cobody.

<Tree-Rhizome in the Solo>

Transform from chaotic movement as slime mold, smoke bug, and so on to an appearance of Tree shape, for example a solid shape or mechanical movement as Tree like a Kugutsu body and so on.

<Tree-Rhizome in the duet>

Find a surprising moment to change from chaotic pair movement like as rhizoming duo or contact and air contact improvisation to a unizon.
And break the unizon as Tree to Rhizome resonance duet.

<Tree-Rhizome in the subbody=cobody>

Shift from a chaotic cobody movement to a special Tree resonance pattern of cobody as line, Squer, circle, box, tower and so on, and break it to another Rhizoming cobody.

In both thought and movement, we are going to acquire techniques to switch freely between the Tree and Rhizome.

For more than 10 years ago, I have wanted to realize this technique, but was unable to succeed until now.
But, finally it is going to be able to experiment and share with everyone.
So,
this <Tree-Rhizome technique> became possible for the first time in the world.

Sinking into darkness of the body
 
<Boxed cobody> in the drawing of Hans Bellmer 
November 4, 2017

What is the real Healing?

Basis of subbody Resonance Butoh is to untangle the unconscious blockages, binds and all of those entanglment in the darkness of the body.


Sometimes they appear as a trauma, shadow, not-me, nightmare, stiffness, sickness, habit, adiction, dissociated personality, and many kinds of subbodies=cobodies.
We release them with giving a shape and movement one by one as subbody=cobody. To imagine a picture of Ballmer that many bodies are trapped in a box, is usefull to get the image of the entanglement. Countless Subbodies are tucked into the narrow place of the darkness of body. Because Life resonates in the non-dual and multi-dimensional Qualia. They are tangled with each other, and became unknown blockage and bind of mind/body. Our consciousness cannot understand how to unleash them. Because some of them are connected not only as a subconscious body, but with archetypes in the collective unconscious realm that were hidden during the human history spanning 7 million years. The deeper cobodies such as
<Swam cobody>, <Forest cobody>, <Chimera cobody>, <Boxed cobody>, <Dismal Air cobody> <Huddling cobody> might be connected to the Non-dual <Prototype Qualia> of Life history of 4 billion years. The reason why we cannot distinguish subbody and cobody is due to it. Some of their origin is not only one's personal history of at most several decades, but millions years history. They must be solved through dancing as subbody=cobody.
Listen to Qualia that are entangled in the darkness of the body, and unleash them one by one. There's no way to understand the order by consciousness, only subbodies are familiar with the most optimum order. It is the <Jo-Ha-Kyu of Healing Life>, we have to just follow it.

Folow the motif than the theme, and listen to the Qualia than the motif!

The modern dance was bound by the narrow thinking habit that we need clear theme for creation. It is stupid because it is bound by the illusion that our consciousness can controll the creation of Life, though our consciousness knows less than 1 percent of the darkness of body. Such as the theme that came up in the head, is not to be involved in such as multi-dimensional entanglement of Qualia in the darkness of the body, it just fly above the box of mystery.
Why we must not dance from such themes? Because it does not affect to the real state of Life.
The conscious theme flies high above the Life, and the dance is trapped in a narrow dualistic appearance.
Stop the dualistic theme orientated thinking, and listen carefully to non-dual Life.
A tendency of Qualia with orientation would become your motif, but motif is still bound by a partial tendency.
Dance beyond the motif, and follow the subtler Qualia in the body at each moment, they can guide us to dance all entanglement in the non-dual and multi-dimensional.
Only by starting from there, we can unleash the extreme complex of entangled Qualia one by one in one performance. Ten or twenty subbody=cobodies will come out with the reverse twisting from the box in the entangled Abyss.
They will come up as <Flower-Secret-Mystery>. Only Life knows the optimum timing and form. Just follow the necessary <Jo-Ha-Kyu> of Life.
It's the Butoh of Life.

A Discovery of Following-up experiences of the same quality as Hijikata Tatsumi

It has been several years since we began working on "Sick dancing Princess".
We felt faintly in the darkness and walking forward without any maps and guides.
Finally we found the best way to research it.
It is to do the same experience as Hijikata was writing it.
It became possible by using the following new methods;
<Dreaming share>,
<Rhizoming share>,
<Drawing Share>,
<Co-midwiving>
and so on.
Using those new techniques that we could follow up the same experience as Hijikata wrote "Sick Dancing Princess".
He lived alone at a room, and became subconscious mode to remind the forgotten memories, forbidden dreams, hidden illusions of early childhood.

Through this we could taste the same Qualia what is happening during the subconscious dreaming and speaking about it in the same way as Hijikata.
It was a very good experience to understand why the book has so complicated chaos beyond the grammars of language.
Not only read the superfluous texts of the book as until last year, but we tried to speak the subconscious Qualia flow of the darkness of body as it is, the word is not a dualistic logical word, it is expressed in the most fundamental language that keeps the characteristics of concrete Qualia, so to speak, that is
<Qualia language>.
And those Qualia languages ​​are not bound by grammar such as explicit subject predicates, they can transform freely as subjects transform themselves and suddenly change scenes, as well as "Sick Dancing Princess".

Yes, at last, we met a place where we could deepen the <Tree-Rhizome technique> that we have been looking for over the years with the body.

We cannot travel in these two worlds of Tree and Rhizome, without using
<Tree-Rhizome Technique> that coming and going freely the both of Rhizome-like non-dual Qualia flow of the darkness of body and the Tree-like hierarchical order by dualistic language.
It is also a practical development of this <Tree = Rhizome technique> that each co-reseacher began to create a unique butoh score.
<Tree = Rhizome technique> is actually impossible to explain by words without having a practical experience to collaborate while traveling back and forth between the fellows' experiences and experiencing themselves with the body.
(Someday it wpuld be possible, but it will definitely take ten years to go by then.

Come to Himalayas!
People who want to explore the richest Life would come here and dig in together the darkness of the body.

Creating Each Own Butoh Score

We have investigated in Hijikata's Butoh score , "Quiet House" and "Sick dancing Princess".
This week, we started to create each own Butoh Score.
We did bodily reading of Hijikata's Butoh score, and next we translate it into Qualia language.
It is easy, because yesterday we translated all Qualia of subbody=cobody into visual channel and drew a the subbody drawings.
Today, we put them into the language channel.

Especially, the <Kyu> part of 'Quiet House", secsion 25, 26 and 27
are the
<Kyu of Momiyose> that we dance all Qualia in a short time with <Jumping Wildly>.

25. (Nightmare)

The nightmare is this naked body

1. Bugs, face of Michaux, face of a girl and face of horse, a woman with perm, face of fool, face of a person drawn by Bosch, hands that beg to be saved

2. A dog, a flower, a shadow, and a rhythmically jumping bug

  

26. Right in the middle of the strange development

1. Replace the love, which spirals into the hands, into the skull completely

2. A nerve became a stick, and a stick became a beggar. The beggar was waving a flag. It was a large bird.

3. When the neck stretched as a horse neck, the elastic of the finger stretched too. During the process, the point of view changed to eyes of point. It was exposed to the reduction and regeneration by X. At that time, the nails got jammed into the back, the whereabouts grew up astray, and through the new regeneration, a small mime was born.

4. The inside overflowed to the outside, and what overflowed returns to the harbor of mask. The mask sets sail toward the forest.

5. A wind of forehead, the forehead was bound. I ran through the leaf of hands and the path of plants and I finally became a stake man.

6. In the picture of abyss, in all phenomena’s 1 am, the peacock of Mr. Yanagida is completed.

 

27. The participation into the skin 

1. A small flower inside a small skull, extremely fine gaze, the nerve witnessed sticks outside the head, the gaze that is sorting the sticks by the forehead.

2. A walking blind with a small face is like a monkey. Lightning struck the head of monkey. A small flower blooms inside the head; a spinning thread song is heard.

3. The stretched out old woman will become a sheet of paper. The woman will ride on the paper like a moth.

4. A samurai commander becomes a queen; the queen will be put in a box of joints. The reincarnation from the box is the dancer, Hoopee.



This trial is the first time in the Subbody Butoh. Because of my limitation. I am not good at language channel, it was an inferior complex. I was bound by it for a long time. Then I could not guide people to create own Butoh score.
Only this year, something is changed and I become to open the language channel flexiblly, though slowly.

The result was amazing! Each dancer could create so rich butoh score and choreography.

Sorry, the old students till last semester! Always my limitation binds your creativity.
But, this is very slow process to de-self own limitation and to open new horizon.

Kafka and Hijikata

'In the fighting between you and the world, support the world! '
F. Kafka

'I usually solve the problems to let them devour me. '

F. Kafka


I introduce two words of F.Kafka who influenced me in my youth.

Both words is the same meaning.
Normally our ego and self is bound by the dualistic illusion, that I am this side, and the enemy is the opposite side or the world side.
When we keep same attitud, it is unable to solve the issue radically.
To solve it from the foundamentals we need to take off the habit that is bound by the dualistic illusion of conflict of the self and the world.
We need to take off from the holizon of the dualistic division, and shift it toward the holizon of Life Resonance.

Kafka's way of sollution was it.
He support the world to attack him.
He let the issues to devour him.
This is the radical shift from the dualistic bind to non--dual, and multi-dimansional Life Resonance world as it is.

By this method, he could create his novels, "The Metamorphosis", "The Castle", "The Judge" and so on.

Also, it is the same way of Hijikata who danced the "Quiet House" and wrote "Sick Dancing Princess".

Let's dance the world of Life Resonance transparently, not being bound by the dualistic and childish bound of self and the world.

<Rhizoming Share>

Conditioning No.7 <Rhizoming> is to transform to Rhizome with taking of the all conditions of "Human".
Cut your body into thousand pieces, and each part can intiate a specific transformation that resonate with specific Qualia. And the next parts are infected gradually, till whole body transformed.

This week, each researcher found own rhizoming. Some of them got so unique rhizoming with full of "blood of dance".
Until last year, we stopped here. We didn't know how to develope it from subbody(individual) rhizoming to cobody rhizoming.

This year, we found a novel experiemnt to share each one's rhizoming process with others as cobody.
There are some stages of the experiment.


< Rhizoming Share>

1. Each one find own rhizoming.

2. in the standing circle position, a person shows own rhizoming that a specific Qualia trasforms from a part to other part of body, and the others copy it. End of the rhizoming, the first person pass Qualia to next person.
And the second person starts own rhizoming, the others share it.

3. In the swarm position like a bird group, top person who is not able to see others initiates own rhizoming and the others follow. When top person change head direction, next person who cannot see the others initiates.

4. Random <Rhizoming Share>
In the free resonance improvisation, evryone researchs own rhizoming. One of them, becomes "Promoter" who follow another persons rhizoming. And the others follow it.

5. It becomes <Resonant Rhizome> naturally.

Twenty years investigation of the <Rhizoming> technique found a process of <Rhizoming Share> that grows to <Resonant Rhizome> that each dancer can chage the world developement through only subtle Life Resonance without any choreographer and director.

It would eventually develope from the small experiments in the dancing world to a model for the large experiments that will change the world through Life Resonance.

The speed of the growth of method is like this very slow. But it is the same as Life evolution that happen only one mutation in millions years initiates and promotes a small evolution.
We need to wait for the timing patiently.

Life Footprint on the cement floor

The giraffe I am drawing is different
from the giraffe you are drawing.
You say, mine is nonsense.
Yes, I’m not drawing giraffe picture,
I draw giraffe itself.
Your giraffe is getting more and more
shaped with eating leaves and fruits
of trees, While it is captivated by
your brush
My giraffe grows more and more.. It
breaks through the canvas and falls
over the easel.. My giraffe walks
leaving a clear footprint on the

Dance the Resonance!

Finally reached to this place that I can say straightly what is the Butoh of Life.

Life is resonance.
Life is resonating with all Qualia beyond the borders.
Life is resonating among persons, among objects, among invisible Behind Worlds.

It is so subtle, but when you stop dualistic thinking, you can catch it.

In the resonance, there is neither subject, nor object. It happen from both side similtaneously.

Through dancing the Resonance, we can take off our ego so easily.

Just be awaer them, and resonate as your detail dance or part movement.

Sometimes resonate with same resonance pattern, sometimes resonate with different resonance patterns.

Everything is resonance.
Do not worry, there is no mistake.
Life is resonating in non-dual and multi-dimensional resonance.
In the non-dual realm, there is neither right, nor wrong.

Dance all of them nonchalancely. Just enjoy it!

We can open novel beauty through it.

<Dreaming Share> meets "Sick Dancing Princess"

This week, we started co-reseach in "Sick Dancing Princess".
At first, we did Language reading that understand the meaning of the text, and proceed to Body reading that graspe it by bodily movement.
And this year we add one more step that we tried to remember the forgotten dismal memories by the new method of the year <Dreaming Share>.
We became subconsciuo mode by self-hypnosis technique and tried to remember the most strange, creepy, mysterious forgotten memory in each life.
Then, same Qualia as "Sick dancing Princess" came out from each dancers darkness of body one after another.

So, The investigation in "Sick Dancing Princess" and <Dreamong Share> were indipendently proceeded, but that day suddenly they became oneness.
The method of <Dreaming Share> was the very same way of Hijikata's writing of "Sick Dancing Princess".

Hijikata lived in a room by alone and meditated by his secret way and one day he called his wife Akiko Motofuji and a few students to write down his speaking of the proto-text of "Sick Dancing Princess". The proto-text was so chaotic, because he spoke just following his inner Qualia stream. It didn't follow the gramar of Japanese, without clear subject and object.
Then he asked a famous poet Takano Kikuo who loves Hijikata's Butoh to arrange the proto-text by minimum correction. Then the final text was born. He did auther review and corrected it two times. One is when he post it to the theater magazine in each month of 1977. And last change when he published it as a book (1983).
Then the final book text that we can read now was born.

Now we got the same method that Hijikata spoke the proto-text. Each subbody also spoke just Qualia language without gramer and logic.
But, we share the almost same Qualia in the darkness body and subconscius body has full of resonativity beyond the self and others. In the <Dreaming Share>, subbody become cobody, cobody become subbody in non-dual and multi-resonance Abyss.

This year we will co-create each piece with deepening this method toward the 15th Himalaya Butoh Festival.
It must full of novel experiments and creations to dance the unexplore butoh of "Sick Dancing Princess".

Toward The Non-Dual, beyond all Dualistic Illusions

Hijikata wrote, "We have to sink down into the non-dual realm beyond the differentiation of self and others. Butoh is the task to open new meeting of human."

Zeami investigated in deep beauty, " (Feel)ー心 (Heart = (Kan, Life Resonance)

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 <>.

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)ー心 (Heart = (Kan, Life Resonance)


Philosopher Nietzsche also sunk into the Non-Dual realm beyond Good and Evil. He knew well that those dualistic judgements were just human illusion that christianity and nation-state built.

"When you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you."
Today is the 173rd anniversary of the birth of Friedrich Nietzsche.
Before people noticed the Life Resonance, they grasped it in such a way as to look and to be looled like this. This awareness was the first step to notice the Life Resonance.
In rephrasing this by our words right now,
"Life is resonating with the invisible Abyss in non-dual and multi-dimensional realm".

Now we are going to the Non-Dual realm to dance the unexplored Butoh world that Hijilata wrote as "Sick Dancing Princess".

After twenty years struggle with it, slowly we get how to dance it.

50 Years Anniversary of My Dead Friend, Yamazaki

 
October 8, 2017

How to Open the Future
- 50 years with the dead friend, Yamazaki


My friend Hiroaki Yamazaki died today 50 years ago, in the Anti-Vietnam War movement, on October 8, 1967.
Every October 8, I have danced with Yamazaki by J.S.Bach, Cello Suite No. 2, BWV 1008. That dance changed into a number of varietions, and became the the lists on bottom.
Today, on 50 years Anniversary day of him, I looked back on my whole life.

Eyes from the Future

Butoh lives in the country of the dead, and sees this real world from the other world.
"Things that disappear only from the point of rotting, opening really life is rather similar to becoming a dead man" (Hijikata Tatsumi)
Zeami always keeps watching himself from a distance eyes. It is called as
"Distant eyes".
Hijikata called this
"Nest of forests, nest of eyes"
In addition to these, I have seen myself with
"Eyes from the Future".
We look at the present from the future which the present problems were solved. Then we can see what problems are left unresolved at this time and what signs of resolution are born.

I learned this "Eyes from the future" from a thinker Yutaka Haniya. Koya. Haniya is the man who called "Embryo meditation" in Hijikata Butoh. No, not only Haniya, but many Japanese thinkers and activists of the 1960s shared this eyes.
The poet Gan Tanigawa muttered.
"Oh, that's just the Nation-State of the Future"
Takaaki Yoshimoto also kept this eyes constantly. Finally, in the
"African stage of mind", he arrived at the animistic primitive mindset of humankind which is resonating in non-dual and multidimensionally transforming. The african stage mind is sleeping in the abyss of all our mental phenomena, and restoring exchange with it is a hope leading to the future. he thought so.
Tatsumi Hijikata who lived in that period also shared it in his bodily experiences of Butoh.
"Humans still do not know even one millionth of the mythical order, historical order, and the coming unknown order in the Future."
"Let's go down to the place of relationship of encounter of non-differentiated state of self and others."
"Butoh is the task of getting down to the root of that relationship."


"non-differentiated state of self and others" is equivalent to the world of resonance qualia resonating in the non-dual and multidimensionally transforming and flowing of "African stage of mind" reached by Yoshimoto.


Sprouts of Rhizome

I have always asked the question to Life.
"What do you want to do most?"
"In what kind of world do you want to live?"

Life responds, not by words, but through faint indications and dreams.
"I want to live in an unexpectedly interesting world.
In a world where all Life can be played as much as they wish. "
"Rhizome is good without hierarchical force of Tree."


This world is full of too many constraints to suppress Life.
My philosophical teacher Gilles Deleuze grasped our human history as a struggle between hierarchical
Tree and coming Rhizome.
Rhizome is the embryonic form of the future society discovered by philosopher Gelles Deleuze. Every Life is not bound by anything, it freely connects across all boundaries and freely separates. There is no center and there is no hierarchical relation.

Indeed, the Tree exists only in this human world. it is a long illusion of human.
All the worlds other than human society are Rhizome.
There is neither the center nor the upper and lower in the macro Universe. The Universe is Rhizome.
The micro cosmos of the String Resonance that is grapsed by the novel String theory is also perfect Rhizome.
According to the String theory, everything that exists in the Universe is caused by a change in the resonance pattern of a vibrating String in a very small size of eleven dimensions.
All vibrating strings are free to connect with other strings, 2 becomes 1, and immediately it is separated into 3. Because it is constantly transforming and flowing, String have not countable number. Deleuze probably did not know the String theory, but the micro world of String Resonance is exactly the Rhizome itself.
And also Qualia that resonates inbetween Life and world are consisted by the String infinitely changing and resonating.

The nation, politics, religion, law, economy, morality, information management system, value judgment that mankind has produced in the past several thousand years are all captured in this dualistic Tree illusion.
I see our presence from the Future where these Nations and other Trees will die.

Resolving every moment

Subbody Resonance Butoh has been exploring in Himalaya for the past 20 years. We investigated in how is it possible to realize such the Future of Rhizome.
In the process of the past twenty years, we found the practical methods of
"Resonant Rhizome" and "Dreaming Share" that transform and flow beyond boundaries between self and other, inside and outside, me and the world and so on. They are the practical way to enter the non-dual and multi-dimensional Resonance world.

And at the moment instantly co-creating the dance, when a tendency of Tree that destroy the free rezonance of Rhizome of Life like a mad King or General come out, we immediately catch it and try to vanish it at each moment by the "De-self conditioning", we try to find the sprout way of the Rhizome possibility, and it has been supported and amplified.
We call this series of task as
<Rhizoming> (to become Rhizome).

In the limited worlds such as Butoh co-creation, there are people who hold the existing authorities such as choreographers and directors. Sometimes our Egos are influenced by the old way, and the leadership that force others and control others. Sometimes one of us is trapped by the tendency like politicians or generals who kill all others that are contrary to themselves.
Since we always try to be Transparent that listen to inside 50% and 50% outside, we continue to be Transparent in dancing that is not caught and foeced by anything, so we noticed it at the moment when those tendencies came out and immediately calm down it.
And, instead of way of Tree like general, we find another method of Rhizome.
We erased the Tree that is born every moment, and trying to become Rhizome.
It is a pleasant path for Life, because it is a way to follow the essense of Life.
In Rhizome, we can open infinite creativity, originality and resonativity (resonance ability) of Life, inherent world transformations are born one after another, and continue to co-create through Life Resonance.

Toward the out of Himalaya

We have been honing creation in the Subbody Resonance Butoh Himalaya that has kept safe distance from the daily world for 20 years, now we are going out of Himalaya to realize the Life Resonance with local comunity and society in various places.
In the real relationship with societies, we will try to diffuse the way of Life Resonance Rhizome to the world.
Already, we have continued experiments to explore the possibility of Life Resonance in the numbers of Europe tours and India tours.
It is about to be reborn as a co-creative tour of a new Life Resonant Art beyond the genre of activities.

Issues of new Life Resonance

There are still a lot of unresolved issues to go.
How can we realize the vivid Life Resonance among local people and the unknown, seemingly grotesque dances like Butoh. There are limitless issues for invention.
Sometimes the voice and song experiments that involves a butoh dance like "Utai" of the traditional Japanese Noh dance, and involves audience into different dimensions which Butoh opens from the depths of Life.
Sometimes a funny drama such as "Kyogen" may also be usefull.
By resonating with local musicians, artists, installations etc. In each region, we will expand the network of Rhizome of Life Resonance to India and the world.

<De-politics>,<De-Tree> at every moment

Everywhere, in every situation, <de-politicalism> and <de-self> are to be carried out.
In the dance, collaboration and the process of making it, we will realize <de-centered>, <de- hierarchy> at the moment when a center or a general and hierarchical relationships are about to be born, we will convert it to Rhizome.
In this way, we will show and share the way of <Rhizoming> that we can get out of the hierarchical order and politics that we are trapped and felt to escape impossible.
That is the second stage of worldwide Rhizoming tour.
We will materialize experiments of Rhizoming that we have been exploring for over 20 years in Himalaya within the contact point with the community.
This is a certain way to change the world slowly through the only subtle Life Resonance without Politics.

Now every political activity that uses information propagation and violence has been totally invalidated and stopped breathtaking by the mighty information management system completed in the last half century.
However, rather than politics, pure life resonance can pass through the eyes of any information system management network and expand that circle.
This seemingly to be the most roundabout, it is the way to change that real world certainly.
For the graduates of the resonance cram school, more than 1,000 people have spread from Himalaya to the rest of the world over the past two decades, and the pipples of unique Life Resonance is expanding in each place.
Eventually it will be handed down to the 2nd generation, 3rd generation.
The future is in Life Resonance.

Co-midwife

 This week, 6 old researchers guided the class instead of Lee as the co-midwife tp listen to each other and support each other for the birth of novel subbody=cobody.
In the Subbody Butoh, there is no teacher, no students, but midwife to listen to the subtle breath of subbody=cobody and support the safe birth, to open infinite creativity of Life.
It is the process to transform to Rhizome which can connect freely and separate flexiblly beyond all kinds of borders.
Rhizome is a sprout form of future of human without any Hierarchical Tree order that was found by a philosopher, Gilles Deleuze (1967).
This pics (Total 18) are in the Adam's guide of his "Fashion Butoh Exercise".
Please crick the picture above to see all pictures.

Butoh Class in Munbai
by Naireet


This is a training focused to train the core muscles of the body and parts that we neglect in our bodies. Practices from traditional art forms along with animal movements would guide the journey with an awareness to subtle movements in the body. Breath, its movement and control would be the core of all things being moved.

What is Butoh? Rich Definition of Butoh 
 

"What is Butoh?"
---A narrow definition to be poor, and deep definition to enrich

Students ask me often, "What is Butoh?"

I reply, "There are two kinds of definition. One is a narrow definition to be poor, another is deep definition to enrich.

Narrow definition limits the butoh, another definition is to open butoh into infinite potentiality of creativity of Life.

Before, also I was bound by the narrow definition as "Butoh is the corpse(=dead body) that tries to stand desperately."

Also I have tried as the following ten years before;

 

"What is butoh?

I have found three essential components of Hijikata's Butoh:

1.  To abandon all conditions as a human, and to transform into a "Suijakutai (Weakened body or Collapsed body)" which resonates with spirits of the dead, insane, handicapped, and collapsed.

2.  To enter dimensions other than that of the human world, and to become a survivor of another world.

3.  To look at the living world as a dead spirit from another world. (We call this the "Near life" body, which has the opposite position as that of "Near Death."(The Butoh 1st chapter)

You can see the struggle in the article of "The Butoh 1st chapter".

 

These might be true for a specific period of butoh, but narrow truth that binds butoh in the limited activity that Hijikata and Ohno tried in a specific time. If you research the history of butoh, you can notice that it was infinite experiments to try diverse possibilities of beauty.

From the resistance against modern dance and ballet, Avant-garde, the rebellion against the values of the modern society(1960'),

As the peak of it, the agressive butoh in the "Revolt of body" (1968),

Invention of the weakened body (1970'),

Infinite investigation in the unexplored 'Butoh of Life' in the "Sick Dancing Princess"( 1976-86).

 

When we research the whole life of them, we can find that butoh is the continuation of infinite quest of novel beauty. So, in one word he just tried to create novel beauty in what people does not regard as the beauty.This is the deeper definition of butoh. It can open butoh into bottomless creativity of Life. It makes butoh richer and deeper by opening unknown possibility of Life.

 

When I was young, was bound by only the narrow definitions of weakened butoh and denied the other styles of butoh. Young Lee had to be an arrogant boy that thought to know well about Life and Universe, but in fact it is just an illusion of Ego. We don't know about the infinite Abyss of Life and Universe at all. Ego has to learn the humility to the Life. It takes time. It need long long journey into the Abyss of Life to get the humility and notice the necessity to take off the Ego.

 

So, now we can follow the richer and deeper definition of butoh as the following;

 

Butoh is an infinite activity to invent a novel beauty in what nobody notices as the beauty.

 

It is to bring us an infinite freedom, a bottomless freedom with vague fears, isn't it?

as a Midwife

Dear Lee and Friends

How's the class going?
Hope all is well in resonance.
I have been performing a lot since came to korea with domestic, international artists.
It is very deep experience also not easy.
Last performance, i was seeking for freedom and followed the freedom. After it, i felt very light and as like i did 'Gud' this is korean word, means like shaman ritual happening.

After this performance i talked with a guy from USA, it was surprised. What he got impressed with my performance, he put in some words about it, and it was very connected with subbody method. He doesn't know the word of 'subbody' but his way to see performance, art, life is very connected with subbody. I realized again my way is deeply connected with it too.

Anyway i feel i have many things to share with you when we meet again.

I have to be in Jeju till middle of Nov with Jeju international experimental arts festival, and i will head toward India. Probably in Dec, get in india!

For next year, i would like to be in school as a midwife.
I had lots of performance now i feel to have time for research with doing midwife.

If the time is coming, before march i hope to join the winter festival!


A big hug
