Body Liberation Retreat
Butoh based on Body Resonance
Dance with Nature and Authentic Movement

Casina Settarte (Ostuni- Puglia)
led by Yumiko Yoshioka e Annalisa Maggiani

3.Luglio - 9.Luglio 2024
(3.July arrival from 17:00 - 9.July departure)

How can we reach the liberation of the body? How can we nourish the healing body?
Let´s  dance and move the resilient body, with flexibility like leaves in the wind and stability like deep grounded roots, and capacity for metamorphosis and transformation.
This retreat is based on the body works of “Body Resonance -based on Organic Movement and Butoh” by Yumiko Yoshioka and “Movement-Dance with Nature” and “Authentic Movement” by Annalisa Maggiani, a journey into the resonances of the body, images and  the nature.

In the morning sessions for 3 hours, Yumiko Yoshioka will offer “Body Resonance” meeting the memories of the body, and freeing the resilient element  in our body.
In the afternoons for 3 hours, Annalisa Maggiani will lead us with the “Movement Dance with Nature and Authentic Movement” with the resonances of the elements of nature. Our body will find a way to expand and release the imaginary and the potential of metamorphosis, as opened in the morning trainings.
The mornings and afternoons come together toward a path of resonance, openness, and awareness, by releasing emotional and bodily blocks and integrating this experience into our lives and art.

Our Philosophy
The Body as a place of Being, of Becoming, of Passage in the continuous flow of existence, as a place of treasures to be known…
By giving form to the images that start from the body and the nature, we obtain a stronger perception of the world of sensations, of internal landscapes and of the connection with the external world, with the universe of which we are a part.
This Project is not proposed here as therapy, but as dance and experience that help us to be more receptive and in touch with our nourishing Self and the healing body: a personal journey of  Body Liberation!
Yumiko Yoshioka and Annalisa Maggiani have been collaborating for about 30 years in performance, performance projects and workshops. This new proposal stems from the desire to create a retreat for regeneration and healing by bringing together “Body-Resonance” and “Dance with Nature- Authentic Movement”.

Eine Workshop-Trilogie mit Annalisa Maggiani und Henriette Heinrichs.

Es gibt vergessene Räume in unserer Körpererinnerung, in denen die Zeit stehen geblieben erscheint. Diese Räume werden wir öffnen und lüften.
Die Langsamkeit und die Stille zwischen den Bewegungen ist der Türöffner für neue Möglichkeiten.
Im Butoh-Tanz bewegen wir unsere Körper aus starken sich wiederholenden Imaginationen heraus.
Diese Imaginationen unterstützten die Intensität unserer inneren Bewegung. Die heilenden Kräfte unserer Nerven und Faszien werden geweckt.
Das polyvagale Nervensystem wird im Butoh Tanz stark aktiviert, so kann der Tanz aus dem Urgrund unseres Seins entstehen
und unsere wesenseigenen Ausdrucksformen ans Licht bringen.
Im Butoh Tanz lassen wir den Körper aus unserem innersten Schichten heraus zu uns sprechen.
Daraus entsteht ein Tanz, der das kollektive Unterbewusstsein die „Schauenden“ berühren kann.
In diesem Workshop wird jede Person unterstützt ihren eigenen Tanz zu entwickeln.
Die unterschiedlichen Stile von Annalisa und Henriette schmelzen sensitiv zusammen und
eröffnen den Teilnehmer*innen ein weites Spektrum an Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten.

Diese drei Workshops sind eine Trilogie, die zusammenhängend oder auch unabhängig voneinander buchbar sind.
Der dritte Teil ist ein Performance Workshop.

Zweiter Teil: „Blooming“ 15. + 16. Februar 2025
Resonanzen des Körpers erspüren und in die Metamorphose des Öffnens tauchen,
organische und natürliche Bewegungen erwecken, uns öffnen.
Und das wiederkehrende Licht reinlassen.
Über unsere Hemisphäre mit anderen Körpern kommunizieren lernen, indirekt und überirdisch.

Danza con la natura e consapevolezza

un approccio ecologico della


14-16 Giugno 2024

Tenuto da Annalisa Maggiani

Nel Retrait attraverso gli strumenti della Danza movimento terapia contatteremo le risonanze tra il corpo, gli elementi della natura e l'immaginazione, il nostro respiro ed il grande respiro della foresta, dell´acqua e della terra, risvegliando la parte intuitiva ed istintiva e compassionevole che è in ognuna di noi, importante per chi lavora con la Danza-movimento-terapia e nella relazione d´aiuto.

Saremo volte a ristabilire una connessione con il “corpo naturale”, unendo rituali individuali a rituali collettivi, la connessione tra il Sé ed il Luogo con momenti performativo-rituali.

 Il contatto con gli elementi portará ad incentivare il “grounding”, il radicamento, il legame con la terra, il flusso libero dell´acqua e del respiro e l´energia vitale propulsiva.

Questo lavoro è il frutto di una lunga ricerca volta a creare un terreno di consapevolezza ed integrazione tra il corpo, il movimento, l’immaginario e gli elementi della natura.  

Nella giornata di sabato interventi di musica dal vivo della musicista e ricercatrice della voce Cristina Alioto*


A chi si rivolge:
