Dancing with the Ancestors: Butoh Ritual Mexicano
The Peñasco Theatre
Peñasco, NM
Share this event:

Diego Piñón's innovative style of teaching and performance incorporates more than 35 years of research in Mexican energetic traditions, Japanese Butoh, ritual dance, modern dance and contemporary theatre.  Performing and teaching throughout North America, Diego brings a profound spirit of exploration to the dancing body, using movement and symbol to strip away assumptions, social, cultural, and personal.  Butoh Ritual Mexicano recovers the timeless power of the stage to create an experience of transformation, allowing performance to become offering.

Butoh Ritual Mexicano challenges our personal behaviours and inherited conventions, and reaches deeper, to rescue the lost parts of the human being.

To truly awaken the body is a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual process. The trainings consist of high-impact aerobic training, active meditation, and guided improvisation, all grounded in a space of communal ritual. The practice includes stretching, shaking, jumping, low-level groundwork, balancing, partnering, bioenergetics, breath expansion, and transpersonal communication.   The integration of these techniques invites a new level of sensory awareness to emerge in each participant and in the group as a whole.

The workshops are open to dancers, performers, and artists of all kinds--to anyone who is interested in discovery through movement.  This practice is hard to put words to, and powerful to experience!

For the intensive, Oct. 11-12, we will work two full days at the historic Peñasco Theatre in Peñasco, NM.  Participants will be provided with simple accommodations at the theatre.  The open evening workshops on October 15 & 16 will be at the Dragon Rising studio on Pacheco St. in Santa Fe.  You are welcome to come for any one, two, or all three of the sessions.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
