Butoh Workshop with Butoh Master Tetsuro Fukuhara

Space Dance workshop is an experience and an expression of movement, a new form of communication and awareness based on Butoh dance. The body is not a tool for expressing a story, the body is a story. The purpose is to get awareness about the body, particularly its relationship to space as well as a deeper connection with the environment. The energy received into the body gives it unlimited energy to move as it circulates between the ground, the air, and the people. It is a recovery of the wild in mankind and rebirth of this awareness is essential for mankind, whose body is intoxicated and lost in the contemporary world.

Space Dance is a collaboration between dance, architecture, information technology, and design. Its founder, Tetsuro Fukuhara, is an experimental New Butoh dancer, choreographer, writer, and director of Tokyo Space Dance. He belongs to the second generation of Butoh artists. Space Dance in the Robotic Universe was one of twenty performances short-listed by an international jury for the UNESCO Digital Arts Award.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council.
