BodyWeather and Butoh: Move, Imagine, Dance!

September 30, 2017

Learn the basics of Japanese contemporary movement practice BodyWeather, which features elements of butoh. Celebrated dancer and choreographer Tess de Quincey will map the basics of BodyWeather movement principles in Move, Imagine, Dance!. Open to high-school students and young adults, this exploratory dance movement workshop will introduce a diverse palette of movement found in BodyWeather, which draws upon butoh practice, western dance styles, martial arts, and theatre influences.

This workshop is presented as part of the Eco-Anxiety event series.


BodyWeather was founded in Japan by Min Tanaka and, besides being adopted internationally, was brought to Australia by dancer/choreographer Tess de Quincey in 1989. Drawing elements from eastern and western dance traditions, martial arts and theatre practices, BodyWeather opens doors to ancient knowledge and wisdom. As a former dancer with Mai-Juku from 1985-91, Tess de Quincey has a long and rich engagement with Japanese butoh dance and choreography.
