Last week I attended a screening of films featuring the Japanese avant-garde dance of Butoh. Then this Saturday I had the wonderful opportunity to experience it live as well.
I wasn’t permitted to take any photos during the performance but instead took these from the movies that I saw. The dance was really intense, It typically involves grotesque imagery, taboo topics, and is performed in white body makeup with slow controlled motion. It may even be purely conceptual.
