(Re)evolution DAIPANbutoh Collective presents Seattle Butoh Festival 2019

From the event description:

DAIPANbutoh Collective work focuses on butoh, an avant-garde genre which erupted out of the turmoil and loss of identity of post WWII Japan. Hijikata Tatsumi created the first butoh piece in 1959. Butoh’s co-founder Ohno Kazuo and son Yoshito performed in Seattle in the 1990s. Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional arts with German Expressionist dance to create a unique performing genre that is both controversial and universal in its expression and has become a global phenomenon. Although DAIPAN annual butoh festival frequently hosts international butoh masters, DAIPAN's 10th year celebration will feature artists from Seattle's rich butoh community.
