About Butoh:

Butoh is a modern dance style that originated in the late 50’s in Japan. The founding fathers of this style, Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, collaborated for many years and created a new approach to dance which was later called ‘Butoh’.

Although Butoh was a product of their collaborative work, they each created separately, developing their own style of Butoh. Hijikata’s Butoh was often referred to as ‘dark’ – he himself called it at one point ‘The Dance of Darkness’. In his pieces he often distorted the body, using spastic, tense movements. He was trying to move as far away from the aesthetic ballet approach to dance as he could, sometimes to the point of ‘shock art’. Ohno, on the other hand, was a very spiritual man. His work was more soft and gentle, full of compassion and poetry.

So from these two founding fathers emerged two very different styles of Butoh: – the ‘dark’, ‘ugly’, sometimes shocking style, and the ‘light’, poetic, often aesthetic style. Although much of the Butoh that has been created over the years can be associated with one of these two styles, many Butoh artists that have developed their own understanding and interpretation of Butoh, creating new styles and from of expression.

According to Hijikata and Ohno this is at the core of Butoh – they have always claimed that one can not imitate Butoh. Butoh must come from the heart and soul, therefore each and everyone has their own Butoh that they must discover.
