From now on we hold a series of events to have a chance to discover diverse contemporary Butoh artists, whose remarkable dedication and contribution inspires and makes believe: Butoh has the future, and it is moulded nowadays by young contemporary artists.
On one hand, Butoh is much influenced while artists bring their backgrounds; on the other hand, Butoh transmits impulses to other arts, and the results are astonishing.
Let us follow this live movement as it is created by the artists today.


At the Contemporary Butoh Meetings. Vol 1, we are happy to introduce in a video interview Vangeline (USA/FR) and Yael Gaathon (DK/ISR), who visit Berlin in June in the frames of their European tour “Dancing with Ghosts”, as well as Nobuyoshi Asai (JP), whose performance alive to be seen at the festival “Behind the movement" at the end of July.
