The Creative Music Studio’s Spring 2014 workshop took place between June 9 – 13 at the Full Moon Resort, nestled streamside in a valley 30 minutes west of Woodstock, NY.  I was the first participant to this workshop as a dancer. It had been excited days with attractive CMS Guiding Artists, such as  Henry Threadgill, Joe Lovano, Tyshawn Sorey, Marilyn Crispell, Peter Apfelbaum, Warren Smith, Judi Silvano, and of course Creative Music Foundation co-founders Karl Berger and Ingrid Sertso.

Michiru Inoue Butoh performance

After we finished our performance,we talked with audience as Q&A. Some audience told me they’d never seen that style of performance.I’ve been aiming to show “unknown existance”.So I was so happy with their impressions.

Thanks for coming everyone!!

Michiru Inoue describes Butoh as “not only a physical action to me, it also can be a live being itself. I have been aiming to create my Butoh-being, which can be formed only ‘here’ and ‘now’.“  Among the days, MICROSCOPIC JOURNEY has reached here. MICROSCOPIC JOURNEY is the most microscopic “world journey.”

    What’s butoh?

    It's just "I am here now".I think Butoh is created by one's self who would like to do it.So I'm sure that if there are one hundred Butoh dancers,there are one hundred styles of Butoh.
