Saturday, April 8, 8pm: Local Sampler
Saturday, April 15, 8pm: Ken Mai
Saturday, April 22, 8pm: Mari Osanai
Saturday, April 29, 8pm: Yuko Kaseki

Butoh College Performance Series---celebrating and exposing the enigmatic, ever-evolving dance-theatre koan that is Butoh. At its best, evading code and definition, butoh emerged from an east-west dialogue of identity politics and anti-capitalist embodiment practice as a rebellious, and often surreal, dance-theatre expression which has become a global expression that peers behind the mask of the civilized world.

FESTIVAL PASS (all 5 performances): $85
ADVANCED TICKETS: $20 General / $15 Low Income
DOOR TICKETS: $25 General / $20 Low Income

Local Samplers:
FRIDAY, APRIL 7TH: LOCAL SAMPLER 1

SATURDAY, APRIL 8TH: LOCAL SAMPLER 2
with Anastazia Louise (Bad Unkl Sista), Stephanie Lanckton, Douglas Allen, Christopher Mankowski & Meghann Rose, at The Headwaters Theatre

SATURDAY, APRIL 15TH: KEN MAI (HELSINKI)
REQUIEM OF FLOWER 鎮魂歌

The lifetime of a flower is fleeting. In only a brief period of days, the totality of the flower becomes as eternal as the cosmos, blossoming unabashedly into the most delicate, ephemeral and erotic expression. Shortly after, the pollen is diffused, absorbed and regenerated again for future descendants. There is no regret in its decay.
Website: http://kenmaibutoh.blogspot.com/

SATURDAY, APRIL 22ND: MARI OSANAI (JAPAN)
P.S-1

“(Osanai) is simply breathtaking, possessing a supple body that seems to have no spine, yet is anchored on a steel spike of consummate control. She is inspired by the natural elements, and her slow, methodical, yet radiantly beautiful explorations of physicality take her dance to a higher plane” --DANCE INTERNATIONAL
Video: https://vimeo.com/7185952

SATURDAY, APRIL 29TH: YUKO KASEKI (BERLIN)
SHOOT JEEZ MY GOSH
photo by Sigel Eschkol
photo by Sigel Eschkol

This butoh dance performance is inspired by Henry Darger’s fantasy world that juxtaposes innocence with violence. Sounds from real battles found on the Internet are contrasted with iconic corporeal movements that represent innocence. The work attempts to pose a question to the feeling of ambivalence towards the systematic violence of belief that imposes powerlessness, and simultaneously reminds us of the brutal terror that characterizes our epoch.

Week 2 (April 11-16) Ken Mai | Butoh Aesthetics

Ken Mai is a Japanese butoh Artist based in Helsinki, Finland. His dance is influenced by both the founding lineages of Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata as well as German Expressionism, Zen, martial arts, singing and the Yoga Sutras. He is often celebrated for his iconic butoh drag imagery and describes his approach to dance as a devotion for sending compassion and love to the world, from the darkness to the light. His workshop concentrates on yogic warm-ups and improvisations led through visual imagery to stimulate poetic movement.


“As a swan she dwells in the pure water, as a flower she dwells in the pure sun. As the rain that falls to the vessel of my empty body, as a dance that gives me the freedom and compassion of love” -Ken Mai

Tuesday Evening Intro: 6:30-9:30pm
Wednesday-Saturday 12-4pm
Saturday, 8pm Ken Mai Performance
Sunday, 5pm Potluck Salon

Week 3 (April 18-23) Mari Osanai | Noguchi Taiso

Mari Osanai is a classically trained dancer and teacher of Noguchi Taiso based in Aomori, Japan. Noguchi Taiso is a form of physical training that supports new ways of movement to improve efficiency while letting go of unnecessary tensions. A technique often utilized by butoh practitioners, it is not about strength or resistance or forcing the body to move in a certain way. Instead, it allows the body to melt, become tender and flexible as we give in to gravity rather than fight it.

"I define Noguchi Taiso as a creation of one's new self as nature within us. Noguchi Taiso draws from a natural force that exists in our body and that is expressed through and with the natural materials that our bodies are made of. I define ""Taiso = Gymnastics"" as a way of exploring HUMANITY. My whole being is a laboratory (atelier), research material (canvas) and scholar (artist)." - Michizo Noguch

Tuesday Evening Intro: 6:30-9:30pm
Wednesday-Saturday 12-4pm
Saturday, 8pm Mari Osanai Performance
Sunday, 5pm Potluck Salon

Week 4: (April 25-30) Yuko Kaseki | Miraculous Origin

Yuko Kaseki is a Japanese butoh dancer, choreographer and teacher based in Berlin. She studied and performed with Anzu Furukawa and has since toured internationally as both a solo and collaborative artist. The emphasis in her workshop is to develop original movement through physical training and body awareness, improvising with image, gesture, space, and relationship. The training combines elements of Noguchi Taiso, butoh methodology, and Tai-Chi Dao-yin. Working from the center (energetic source), the practice cultivates a permeable body in order to awaken deeper layers of sensitivity. Listening honestly to the variants of the inner body to develop in relation to the outer, working with intensity and reduction, each person discovers a unique body, physical reality and exposure.

“The origin of you is full of miracles. Dig and cultivate the body as a frontier, to find out hidden, untouched fields of emotions, memories and sensations...research each detail of the body parts, to divide and reconnect. Observe the habits of movement through your socialization, and challenge yourself to break through the comfortable zone. Disorder is a way of creativity, to find new visions and physical systems.” -Yuko Kaseki

Tuesday Evening Intro: 6:30-9:30pm
Wednesday-Saturday 12-4pm
Saturday, 8pm Yuko Kaseki Performance
Sunday, 5pm Potluck Salon
