GooSayTen Butoh Performance 2012
We had 3 intensive Butoh workshops in 2012 in Sapporo, Japan. Howeber, both Itto (psychologist) and Mika (dancetherapist) were very busy working for colleges and hospitals, based on Butoh therapy approach. Mika was also occupied with her studies and preparations for her Master thesis, missing several big performance opportunities, to our regret.|
Mika was given "Kita no koe (North voice)" Art Prize (Nov.2, 2012) from Bunkajuku Sapporo Artlabo. One old distinguished sculptor got the first prize, Mika and a young artist got the second prizes.
And, Mika's butoh students below, such as Risa Chikita and Zamuko Gootama, were actively performing this year and becoming beautiful and dreadful butoh dancers with their own butoh dance styles, of which we are very proud.
