Constance Humphries

Constance Humphries has been making, presenting and teaching dance since 1987. As a choreographer and performer, her work is grounded in butoh dance. Butoh is often referred to as the dance of darkness. It is by excavating what is underneath consciousness that she seeks meaning and inspiration for her creative practice, which is based on performative investigations of relationship, identity, memory and intimacy and addresses issues of the body, the environment and social justice.

Through my live and screen-based performance, I create the circumstances necessary to experience the body’s wisdom & vulnerability. My dance starts from intimacy and trust, exploring and reflecting the internal landscape where the body becomes being...being moved, not moving. Butoh is my means for sharing my ideas, inspirations and inquiries in order for audiences to have an experience of sensate connection to their humanity.
