At 50, Butoh dance is so young an art form that practitioners are often asked “What is Butoh?” Speakers Katsura Kan, Koichi and Hiroko Tamano, Katherine Mezur, Takami, Brechin Flournoy and Christina Braun will explore Butoh’s orgin in 1959 Japan and the current global nature of this highly influential art form with a lecture, dance demonstration, archival film screening, a moderated panel discussion with leading artists and thinkers, and an audience question and answer period.
