An introduction to the “dance of utter darkness”, based on my own research and experience working with Katsura Kan and the students of Diego Piñon.

Participants will work with poetry, suffering and nonsense to explore boundaries and develop choreography. For dancers, actors, choreographers, and performers of all kinds.


Ankoku Butoh was a Japanese postmodern dance developed in the 1960s, which has now become a label for a wide range of forms. Unifying themes include transformation—often into non-human entities, forces of nature, or nothing at all—a rejection of fixed meaning, and often extreme physical rigor.
