ATSHUSHI TAKENOUCHI

Biography

Atsushi Takenouchi joined Butoh dance company
"Hoppo-Butoh-ha" in Hokkaido in 1980. His last performance
with the company "Takazashiki" (1984) was worked on by
Butoh-founderTatsumi Hijikata.
He has been working on his own Jinen Butoh since 1986 and
created solos "Tanagokoro", "Ginkan",
"ltteki" as a universal expression of
nature, earth and ancient times and his impression of the
moment,
formulated from the people around
him, and the environment.
Atsushi
has danced at sights such as the
Killing Fields in Cambodia, Kobe earthquake,
Auschwitz-Birkenau,
sacred temples around the world,
thousands of year old trees, and
desolate environments in Asia, Brazil , Eastern Europe.
Atsushi has
been touring Japan, Asia and Europe extensively in the last
decades.
Since 2002 he has taught
wilderness
dance workshops in the US , and collaborated with dancers
and actors
in Europe and the United
States.
He currently lives in Paris.

Dancing Life

"Dance is devotion of life." I learned this while my
traveling nature
fields called JINEN. This
means I should dance to "my life," to the
moment,
and to now which lasts forever. I feel we have forgotten
memories of
days when we lived connected
with nature's gift (such as water,
wind,
grass, trees, and
animals). A long time ago we danced, forgetting day and
night. We
forgot ourselves, and became
just as one life with the earth? What
about
now? We've been choreographed to fit into given pattern.

Improvisation

"It's a dance without choreography. You dance as you feel,
sharpening
your senses, with conviction.
You can't improvise unless you can
enjoy
what you are doing and act alive. Sometimes we may look
like two
dragons, or two jellyfish talking
with each other, the moon and the
sun, or
two dancing cranes in love. We all have the blood of a
native and
spiritual dancer."

Re: Brazilian Percussion Classes with Master Percussionist

Dende

Hi Everybody!

We have finally been able to start classes again - after
having left our
studio in Manhattan. We are now holding classes in our
Brooklyn studio
starting this coming Tuesday, July 17th from 7-8:30pm. We
plan to continue
having classes regularly on Tuesday nights. If that's a
conflict for you
let us know.

Directions are as follows:

F Train to Fort Hamilton Parkway. Exit at the back of the
train and leave
via the Reeve Place exit. Walking two blocks in the same
direction up
Prospect Avenue until you have walked under the bridge.
Directly after the
bridge there is a stairwell. Walk up the stairs on the
right side and it
will put you on Seeley Street. Continue in the same
direction on Seeley
towards Prospect Park. Your first left will be Temple
Court. We are at 6
Temple Court. Go down the stairs and you're at the studio!

Otherwise, we'll see you on Tuesday! Let me know if you
have any questions.

~Leslie

Dear VLA Friends and Members,

Due to a hot summer and as a thank you to the arts
community, VLA is
holding two FREE Legal Clinics during the month of July.
These two
FREE VLA Legal Clinics will take place in VLA's offices on
Wednesday,
July 11th and Wednesday, July 25th, from 4pm to 7pm.

The Clinic is a forum that provides artists and arts
organizations
with the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a volunteer
attorney for
30 minutes. During that private appointment, attorneys
respond to
inquiries about any arts-related legal matters. Each Clinic
runs for
approximately three hours, with the first half-hour
appointment at
4:00 pm , and the last appointments at 6:30 pm . It is open
to all
individuals and art organizations that have a legitimate
legal issue.

In the past, artists and arts organizations have presented
issues in
the following areas: copyright, trademark, contract,
employment
issues, non- payments, collaborations, etc. For example, an
artist who
has been offered a contract may seek assistance in
understanding its
basic terms. An artist may ascertain whether her
intellectual property
rights are being infringed. Exploring alternatives for
starting for-
profit and not-for-profit business entities is also a
common matter.

To sign-up for one free 30-minute appointment, the artist
or arts
organization representative must first call our Art Law
Line at
212.319.2787 x1, and speak with one of our interns
regarding their
question. Our interns will then consult with a staff
attorney to make
sure your concern is appropriate for the Clinic. Upon staff
attorney
approval, the caller will then be given one free 30-minute
appointment
to one of the two free legal clinics. These two free
clinics will be
filled on a first-come first-serve basis to those approved
by VLA for
an appointment.

Free Legal Clinic In July
When:
Wed, July 11, and Wed, July 25: 4-7pm

Where:
Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
1 East 53rd Street (on the corner with 5th Ave)
6th floor
NY, NY 10022

Since 1969, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts has been the
leading
provider of pro bono legal services, mediation services,
educational
programs and publications, and advocacy to the arts
community in New
York. The first arts-related legal aid organization, VLA is
the model
for similar organizations around the world. For more
information about
Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, please see www.vlany.org.

ATSHUSHI TAKENOUCHI

Biography

Atsushi Takenouchi joined Butoh dance company
"Hoppo-Butoh-ha" in Hokkaido in 1980. His last performance
with the company "Takazashiki" (1984) was worked on by
Butoh-founderTatsumi Hijikata.
He has been working on his own Jinen Butoh since 1986 and
created solos "Tanagokoro", "Ginkan",
"ltteki" as a universal expression of
nature, earth and ancient times and his impression of the
moment,
formulated from the people around
him, and the environment.
Atsushi
has danced at sights such as the
Killing Fields in Cambodia, Kobe earthquake,
Auschwitz-Birkenau,
sacred temples around the world,
thousands of year old trees, and
desolate environments in Asia, Brazil , Eastern Europe.
Atsushi has
been touring Japan, Asia and Europe extensively in the last
decades.
Since 2002 he has taught
wilderness
dance workshops in the US , and collaborated with dancers
and actors
in Europe and the United
States.
He currently lives in Paris.

Dancing Life

"Dance is devotion of life." I learned this while my
traveling nature
fields called JINEN. This
means I should dance to "my life," to the
moment,
and to now which lasts forever. I feel we have forgotten
memories of
days when we lived connected
with nature's gift (such as water,
wind,
grass, trees, and
animals). A long time ago we danced, forgetting day and
night. We
forgot ourselves, and became
just as one life with the earth? What
about
now? We've been choreographed to fit into given pattern.

Improvisation

"It's a dance without choreography. You dance as you feel,
sharpening
your senses, with conviction.
You can't improvise unless you can
enjoy
what you are doing and act alive. Sometimes we may look
like two
dragons, or two jellyfish talking
with each other, the moon and the
sun, or
two dancing cranes in love. We all have the blood of a
native and
spiritual dancer."

Re: Brazilian Percussion Classes with Master Percussionist

Dende

Hi Everybody!

We have finally been able to start classes again - after
having left our
studio in Manhattan. We are now holding classes in our
Brooklyn studio
starting this coming Tuesday, July 17th from 7-8:30pm. We
plan to continue
having classes regularly on Tuesday nights. If that's a
conflict for you
let us know.

Directions are as follows:

F Train to Fort Hamilton Parkway. Exit at the back of the
train and leave
via the Reeve Place exit. Walking two blocks in the same
direction up
Prospect Avenue until you have walked under the bridge.
Directly after the
bridge there is a stairwell. Walk up the stairs on the
right side and it
will put you on Seeley Street. Continue in the same
direction on Seeley
towards Prospect Park. Your first left will be Temple
Court. We are at 6
Temple Court. Go down the stairs and you're at the studio!

Otherwise, we'll see you on Tuesday! Let me know if you
have any questions.

Dear VLA Friends and Members,

Due to a hot summer and as a thank you to the arts
community, VLA is
holding two FREE Legal Clinics during the month of July.
These two
FREE VLA Legal Clinics will take place in VLA's offices on
Wednesday,
July 11th and Wednesday, July 25th, from 4pm to 7pm.

The Clinic is a forum that provides artists and arts
organizations
with the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a volunteer
attorney for
30 minutes. During that private appointment, attorneys
respond to
inquiries about any arts-related legal matters. Each Clinic
runs for
approximately three hours, with the first half-hour
appointment at
4:00 pm , and the last appointments at 6:30 pm . It is open
to all
individuals and art organizations that have a legitimate
legal issue.

In the past, artists and arts organizations have presented
issues in
the following areas: copyright, trademark, contract,
employment
issues, non- payments, collaborations, etc. For example, an
artist who
has been offered a contract may seek assistance in
understanding its
basic terms. An artist may ascertain whether her
intellectual property
rights are being infringed. Exploring alternatives for
starting for-
profit and not-for-profit business entities is also a
common matter.

To sign-up for one free 30-minute appointment, the artist
or arts
organization representative must first call our Art Law
Line at
212.319.2787 x1, and speak with one of our interns
regarding their
question. Our interns will then consult with a staff
attorney to make
sure your concern is appropriate for the Clinic. Upon staff
attorney
approval, the caller will then be given one free 30-minute
appointment
to one of the two free legal clinics. These two free
clinics will be
filled on a first-come first-serve basis to those approved
by VLA for
an appointment.

Free Legal Clinic In July
When:
Wed, July 11, and Wed, July 25: 4-7pm

Where:
Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts
1 East 53rd Street (on the corner with 5th Ave)
6th floor
NY, NY 10022

Since 1969, Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts has been the
leading
provider of pro bono legal services, mediation services,
educational
programs and publications, and advocacy to the arts
community in New
York. The first arts-related legal aid organization, VLA is
the model
for similar organizations around the world. For more
information about
Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, please see www.vlany.org.
