In 1980 she founded her dance group in France. Her training is mainly based on old Japanese theatre and martial arts. Treating with so-called Ki energy and with the breathing opens our deep sensibily. Sumako Koseki works and teaches in the fields of performance, dance and theatre in Japan and in Europe. Since 2002 she reveals in Czech Republic.

Sumako denotes Butoh as “the Dance on the Edge” where expressions and movements find itself by emergency and vital necessity. Then depersonalized interpreter can be possessed by various beings and states, logical order will be introduced into chaos, into edge and fitfulness, mind intention will be changed into spontaneity, so called humanity into animality. Not an intellect but a memory of a body animates us with archetypal remembrances encoded in our DNA.
