At-A-Site Theater presents

"Butoh-fu: a dance of listening"

Catch the pleasure of transformation through words

100 movements can be no match for one transformation


'Butoh-fu' is the name given to the poetic word image notations recorded by butoh dancers to guide and inspire their dances.

Individuals will be invited to randomly select short texts by Kazuo Ohno (1906-2010) and Tatsumi Hijikata (1928-1986), the founders of butoh.

These texts will then be read out loud to the listener as s/he is encouraged to close eyes and experience butoh dance by imagining a physical metamorphosis inspired by the words.

performed @ “Butoh Garden Party”
