An Evening with Japanese Butoh dance artists and critics

Held in conjunction with the second biennial CAVE New York Butoh Festival (October 4–26), this evening serves as an introduction to, and an in-depth dialogue on, Butoh, the avantgarde dance form that emerged in post-World War II Japan. The evening will include selections from rare Butoh dance videos, demonstrations by Japanese dancers, and a panel of critics, academics, and Butoh artists from Japan, Europe, and the United States. The panelists will critically analyze the current themes and trends in Butoh and examine the future of this international and constantly evolving art form.

Over the last 20 years, Yuko Kaseki has developed her own rich choreographic vocabulary that is rhythmic and elegant. Kaseki began her study of Butoh dance with Anzu Furukawa, a soloist of DAIRAKUDA-KAN during the 70s, and danced in two of Furukawa’s companies, Dance Butter Tokyo and Verwandlungsamt. In 1999 Kaseki and German director Marc Ates formed cokaseki, a company that has performed solo and ensemble works throughout Europe, Japan, and the US. Born in Japan, she has lived in Berlin since 1995.
