8 years it has been since the creation of shadowbody. The name manifested in a dream deep in the night while in my studio apartment in a village in the Himalayan mountains of India close to where I was studying butoh full time.

Since then, shadowbody has seen its name attached to workshops, YouTube tutorials, and even a lengthy butoh manual.

The name means our subconscious (or unconscious) body, the often marganlized and unexplored body of endless creative potential. The goal is always integration.
