“You must become invisible”

She said to me after 1.5 hours of scapula squishing finger pointing micro movement. Becoming a tree, becoming a soldier, dying… H. said to me yes yes all the technique all the detail but after a while you need to learn to be invisible to invite all the audience and universe to be in you. 

You must become invisible…

I think that might be part of the core of Butoh… the circle you draw around yourself to erase yourself. To white it out, to become invisible, to disappear while being watched. 

sounds like shapeshifting to me…

and it’s not easy like in Disney or what have you… it’s more like bone stretching foot curling face twitching hip swinging joy/pain.
