Butoh meets Contemporary - An experimental Performance

Butoh is a young art form from Japan and was founded by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno after the 2nd world war. With their progressive and revolting performances the artists initiated a very aesthetical way of a protest. The translation of the word Butoh is „ Dance of Darkness" The roots of Butoh are also found in Expressive dance as Mary Wigman an Rudolph van Laban developed end of the 20ths. Since the 90's Butoh finds it's way all over the world and has developed in many different directions an can be seen as an Performance Art as well as an practice.

Butoh aesthetics are much wider and its practice is more than just a new choreographic and visual trend, discovered and developed by the Japanese modern artists.
