Butoh Ad-Lib with Hiroko Tamano at Headwaters Theare

Join us for the more performative side of Butoh College! In a spirit of collegiate risk and adventuring, we have asked each of our invited international artists to share a more Informal butoh-inspired dance or improvisation—with or without costume, sound or composition. In addition, we have invited a number of local and regional artists to share a work in the same vein. How can we study and experience the kinesthetic intelligence and imaginative presence of the artist whose work has been deeply influenced by the butoh lineage and training? What are the qualities beyond the associated aesthetics of the form? What do the artists have in common? How do they differ?

Saturday, March 19th; 8pm
Natsu Nakajima along with local artists Meshi Chavez, Teresa Vanderkin, Tracy Broyles & Kat MacMillan
