Dancing the Entanglement

concept

When the body fits the spirit it's dance. When the skies were full of stars, the human being was stories and dances around the fire. Body and spirit fitted the firmament through movement and dreams. Those days are still in our memory. We discover them again through FÜYA Method, that involves dance and meditation.

About Damiano

biography

Damiano Fina is a butoh dancer based in Italy. Since 2004, his research has been influenced by Animism, ancient rituals in the Classical Greece, Dogen’s Zen, Butoh Dance and Quantum Physics. In 2015 he founded FÜYA, a method focused on the body’s presences and entanglements. His work explores the illusory contradiction between equilibrium and disequilibrium.

When you dance, your skin shines!

Butoh dance is the dance of the entanglement. Füya Butoh is based on Damiano Fina’s research about the alchemical body, FÜYA method and quantum physics.

More than a dance, butoh is shamanic practice. It is a ritual. Butoh is about visible and invisible things. Butoh art has a message against the modern society that is always focused on appearance and, in dance, it is always looking for the best “athletic movement”. Butoh rejects this vision of the world bringing back the attention to a more spiritual way of life, never religious by the way, close to the nature and to Animism.

During the most intimate butoh dance sessions, performance or workshops, you enter into a dimension that is called in Japanese “Ma” 間. It is a “space in between”, a space or, moreover, a state of expansion of the organism that moves itself in the entanglement of all the worlds, without judgement, where everything is constantly in transformation and no dualities occur.

For Kazuo Ohno, when the butoh-ka falls down, it does not tumble on the floor, but in another world. Butoh dance opens up new dimensions in which space and time flow in a different way.

These trips into diffractive worlds are possible thanks to the ritual atmosphere of butoh dance, during which all the differences between ugly and beauty, masculine and feminine, human being and nature are abolished. Butoh dance is about metamorphosis and transformation.

Füya butoh evokes the importance of connecting with the ritual dimension in which all is entangled in the materialization of the world. Dancing the transformation of the existence gives expression to the continuum of the existence itself.
