About the Event

30 min presentation (about Butoh/ Soluna and Shen Nü Butoh)

1h30 work-shop (let's explore the body entity, the dance of a dream)

An experience of the power of life and the eternal light and darkness cycle. In this time of solstice, we will focus to feel the starting point of the light, in the full darkness.

With the imagination, how to push the limits of the body and become a material entity. The microcosm of body existence in the macrocosm of the universe.


Soluna Kitayama is a dancer, singer, calligrapher and shaman. She develops her own way, Shen Nü butoh to free her soul by breathing with the different spirits of nature. Snow, stone, wind ... to feel the mystery of existence and the dream of the univers. she transforms her-self with the essence, the qi or the breath of different spirits and paint the space with the body, the voice, the brush. Her Dance is a prayer, an offering for the Divine soul.
