Butoh-Ritual Dance

Butoh-Ritual Dance

Mizu is a portland Butoh performance artist and in this rare interview she talks about her craft, and her community. This is a local homegrown production with a track from our very own Solovox. Butoh is an enigma, an ever-evolving mystery. Violent or peaceful, slow or manic, painfully intimate or grandly spectacular, freely improvised or choreographed in stylized gestures, Butoh seems to fly away from itself, resisting definition or explanation, yet profoundly transforming those who encounter it.
