butoh performance by Stoil Atanasov
When the body is set free from the social restrictions, then and only then, miracles occur. The magic of freedom comes when you manage to touch the utmost point of your inner self deep within.
TRANS::FORM examines the power of purification, of penetrating deep into the consciousness. This is where the tides of our psyche take us to dimensions in which we rediscover our inner selves. The philosophy underlying the project has been provoked by the Japanese contemporary dance Butoh. The minimalist movements lead to a state of trance, during which the body breaks loose from its awkwardness resulting from prejudice accumulated with time. This monotonous, silent trance echoes in the mind with an effect very similar to the rumbling of a train passing nearby.
