Greetings! Today is the perfect day for research and reflection! I woke this morning to a strong desire to look internally at how I was feeling and growing very much as a woman/artist. The topics of the day are: Expression vs Perception. Expression: the process of making one’s thoughts or feelings. Perception: the ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses. Which brings me to even more realization of the reason as to why I have taken such a liking to the exploration of butoh and the further knowledge of the classical for of dance, Ballet. These two forms are complete opposites of each other. Ballet: revolves around the mastery of the strict technique itself. It is a form of art, which makes it expressive, through the technique and artistry. Entertaining the audience and playing a role, character and or a story. And butoh, A more recent form of art(est.1960s) comes from the foundation of pure and unguarded expressionism, born out of the need to break out of rules and boundaries of the body and mind. Not usually focused on there being judgement, entertainment or acknowledgement of the audience. Not at all like a tutu and or corset, or even a leotard. Interesting process for me. I will continue to explore, for it will be very useful during my process of further Creativity and Growth. In general. Please feel free to share your thoughts, comments, etc with me. Thanks for taking the time to read and follow. Enjoy the rest of this day!
