Salangina and I carry out performance and directorial work for a variety of groups and events. We are happy to collaborate with musicians, photographers, schools, theatres, art galleries, etc. Feel free to contact me and share your ideas, make suggestions, or ask for more information.

As a director the aim is to contact the essence of the person, to tap into his embryonic and latent source. As every human being is a singular creation, the copycat syndrome, and the clone division must be avoided at all cost. Butoh helps in liberating the conformist person.

Through the being experience, the person and performer momentarily become the exposer of potential, free from the notion of success, performance, or social flesh. The person grows away from differentiation and towards integrity, towards one’s own independent creativity. Performances and encounters are found and carry their own value and suchness. We let performances and encounters breathe, stand on their own feet, and they approach occurrence.

The practice of Butoh heightens our latent awareness and teaches the practitioner to spiritually progress devoid of prejudice and society's synthetically imposed upon goals. In this way do we banish the false exteriors; so are we then able to gaze upon the true inner life of the Butoh follower. Furthermore, this makes it possible to truly flourish without the wasting of time in false pursuits; in its wake we are left with enriched experience. Resultantly, beauty, art and your own essence have a clearer and more truthful light shed upon them. This is achieved, in time, with a newly discovered and effortless creative energy.

A thought
Art, in its most natural state, provides integrative experiences which are beyond good or bad, free of criticism or expectations to succeed, to do things the right way. This is Art of Integrity.
