DANCING EARTH: Workshop Intensive + Performances
...A Butoh "Zen Dancing" Experience...
APRIL 22-24: EARTH DAY WEEKEND
BUTOH is a powerful and awe-inspiring contemporary Japanese dance/
theater form based on transcendent improvisational movement journeys
that are strongly connected to nature and the human condition. Butoh
embodies energy, imagery, presence, metamorphosis, and deeper levels
of the body and the self. With the recent occurrence of the tragic
earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear catastrophe in Japan, this timely
Earth Day Weekend workshop intensive and performance series is an
empowering way to connect with our environment, our community, and our
authentic human spirit.

SUN. APRIL 24 @ 10am-4:30pm + Performance (See below)
