When you dance, your skin shines!
Alchemical dance is the dance of the entanglement. Füya method is based on Damiano Fina’s research about the alchemical body and radical queer theory.
More than a dance, alchemical dance is shamanic practice. It is a ritual. Dance is about visible and invisible things. Alchemical dance 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”. Alchemical dance 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 Alchemy.
During the most intimate alchemical dance sessions, performance or workshops, you enter into a dimension that 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 dancer falls down, it does not tumble on the floor, but in another world. As well as butoh dance, alchemical 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 dance, during which all the differences between ugly and beauty, masculine and feminine, human being and nature are abolished. Alchemical dance is about metamorphosis and transformation.
Füya dance 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.
