Rural Butoh Research Camp

IruWay Farm

Durgadahalli, Karnataka, India

The Rural Butoh Research Camp is a place where performers, dancers and other body work oriented creators can experiment with new ways of creating a new kind of beauty.

Away from the city, the traffic and the tourists we discover the simple quiet peace of a small village next to a national forest.

The daily mind gets quiet...

Relaxing, the body reconnects with the subtle rhythms of the natural environment.

The hills, the forest, the caves, the sky, and the weather become our teachers.

There is enough time and space for individual and collective research, play and performance.

This winter the camp is guided by Honza Svasek, a visual artist and butoh performer from the Netherlands and Ivana Indjin, a performer, theater director and expressive technique therapist from Serbia.

There is a limited amount of places and the minimum participation time is one week.

You pay a basic fee of 300 Indian Rupees per day, to be paid in advance weekly, which will cover basic costs of your stay.

The teaching is on donation, pay what you can when you leave.

We will organize an open community kitchen where we can buy food, cook, and eat together. Usually no more that 1-2 euro/day is needed for that.

Every working day there is a morning class which you are expected to follow. Optionally, an early morning exercise and and an afternoon class can be co-created by the participants.

Weekends are open. Other projects, like performances and co-creations with other artists at the Farm will usually develop.

All participants participate in basic housekeeping tasks such as cooking, cleaning etc.

There is some sleeping places already built, but it is best to bring your own tent, sleeping bags etc.

Our location you can find here, it is 15 Km from Tumkur from where you can travel by bus or auto riksja to the Farm.

Butoh in Dharamsala

Open Butoh Research at the Life Resonance Art Center

March 9 - 20 with Mushimaru Fujieda

Teaching his personal interpretation of Butoh, which he calls Natural Physical Poetry – a term inspired by his collaborations with Allen Ginsberg. His methods open the channels of creativity and encourages potential in movement improvisation, allowing you to interpret in your own form.

March 23 -- May 23 with Honza Svasek

His classes will center around three important concepts in Subbody Butoh Research:


We will research various ways to stop the daily mind and get into Butoh Trance.


We will find different ways to discover the Blood of Dance needed to make a spirited performance. A journey into the subconsciousness.


Butoh is NOT freedom. Butoh is freedom in a BOX. We will find new ways to build performances, using Instant Composition techniques.
