Semimaru Dance Workshop 2017

Semimaru, who is one of the founders of Sankai juku, and also a dancer of the company
for 40 years, will have Butoh workshop in August 2017 in Toyama prefecture, Japan.
This Summer workshop has been held annually over 20 years.

This workshop consists of...
- basic Butoh exercises which Semimaru has developed
- Semimaru will design and choreograph a show
- at the last evening Semimaru and you perform at a outdoor stage in a public facility

 Although you can attend partially, we recommend you to take the whole course, training and the performance. It's a resident style workshop with 2 very simple meals per day, taking a person-on-duty system for cooking and cleaning etc. The actual trainings are around 6 hours or more per day(including preparation for costume and stage set etc). We also do trainings outside and at night depending on weather conditions.
Not only professional dancers but beginners, actors or various performers, or who is just curious what is Butoh, are welcome.
Located in the rich nature of Toyama, the workshop place is good for chill out in summer. 
The participants can get in a performance of Kokuto-in in autumn in Yokohama(near Tokyo). Come to join us in Toyama and enjoy the beautiful summer in a rural part of Japan !
