BUTOH

... bears in mind the inner contradictions of the body of every human being between light and darkness, ratio and emotions and life and death.

 

... is the transformation from one state into another.

 

 ... is the thing in-between where the body is not a fixed entity but constantly changing.

 

... follows the Instinct of life, is never a still-stand but a continuing movement.

 

... is the original will of human being to develop and to grow in order to become what we cannot see but feel; to become what we ARE.

... is Mayu – Cocoon – a state of metamorphosis. Inside exists a Being neither living nor dead, captured in its fragile and delicate yet strong and nutritious cover. Here it rests, receives new energy, grows, develops and transforms until it breaks out, peels off the strings, opens the layers step by step in order to become something new.

Butterfly

Captured in its cocoon

Awakening

 

 

Time to hatch

To tear down the walls

And spread out the wings

Time to fly

To dance with the sun

And play with the wind

Time to soar

To touch the sky

And to enter a new world

 

 

Yet,

Winter arrived

Before spring blossomed

And Butterfly

Retreated into its shell

For another year

MayuKan - DaniMayu ButohDanceCompany was founded in January 2006. The members of this very first moment were Ria Probst, Gerwich Rozmyslowski and Bernhard Weiss.

The Debut of the Company was in October 2006 at the Neue Buehne Villach with Siddhartha. The piece was created by a co-operation between DaniMayu and Bruno Strobl (Composer).

After a reorganization of the group the Company showed the piece Coin of Cabitoh at the Butoh-based DanceFestival 'Dance ga Mitai! 9' in Tokyo in July 2007. The new members were Caroline Heinecke and Anna Nowak.

From July 2008 until October 2019 the Company was left quiet.

 

DaniMayu continued working independently.

BUTOH

 

 

 

When she transformed into a BUTTERFLY

the CATERPILLARS

spoke not of her beauty

but of her weirdness.

 

They wanted her to change back

into what she always had been.

 

BUT SHE HAD WINGS

It’s struggle warns the IDLNESS

I have to do what I have to do

 

It’s pain warns the FEAR

I have to do what I have to do

 

It‘s lonely warns the COWARD

I have to do what I have to do

 

It’s ridiculous warns the INSECURITY

I have to do what I have to do

 

And the METAMORPHOSIS

goes on and on and on ...

 

 

 

 

 

On the occasion of DaniMayu's 20th anniversary in 2020, the company was revived from October 2019. Eventually, a group of five members formed around DaniMayu - Jule, Michaela Mab, Runa Hatariy, Stephanie Tietz, Theresa Griessenberger
