Butohworkshop with Tanja Zgonc
at Tanztendenz München

june, 15 and 16, 2024

In the upcoming workshop Tanja Zgonc will focus at the movement with the back and at the poetry of the dance with our invisible strings.
In our bodycells these strings are ever stored and present, but mostly we are not conscious about. In Butoh we can find and experience them.
Tanja Zgonc works as a professor for butohdance at the academy for acting in Ljubljana/Slovenija ( AGRFT) and also as an independent choreographer. She created by herself several successful danceproductions, like KAGAMI and KOORA, which were both rewarded with national slovenian prizes.
After her education in Modern dance she dedicated her further studies to the Butoh with the old masters Kazuo Ohno, Yoshito Ohno, Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda. For Tanja Butoh is a method and a movement priniciple, where you research your own psychophysical traces. Therefore she developed her own specific style of movement, where the main focus lies on the expressive motoric of the back. On top of this Tanja uses the breathe as a creative and dynamical element.
