Here are 6 Great Places to See Butoh in Fall 2015 in New York City.
1) LEIMAY’s "Thresholds II" and "In Illo Tempore Vignettes"
Using dance, theater, music, and light at sunset, LEIMAY explores the fragility and resilience of life through a dance of rising and falling in "Thresholds II". In “In Illo Tempore Vignettes” characters are captured suspended in time to reveal what it seems to be eternity or what might be considered as eternity.
While Leimay doesn’t call itself butoh, their work is always highly influenced by the form, including the teachings of the late Ko Murobushi, one of the most famous 2nd generation butoh masters from Japan. - Jordan
2) Butoh Medea at the United Solo Festival
Using the Japanese dance form Butoh and an adapted text, Yokko brings the spirit of Medea to life. This fusion of Eastern dance and Western drama puts the audience inside Medea’s dark and desperate struggle. Trapped in the underworld, she is forever cursed to relive her tragic journey through love, hate, and ultimate loss.
