Atsushi Takenouchi, worldwide known Butoh master and dancer, was the student of both Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata (the founders). He founded the JINEN butoh in 1984, his own butoh language. His dance is being inspired by nature, it’s power, it’s beauty, it’s cycles. Atsushi is arriving with his wife Hiroko who will play live music during the events.

About Butoh :

Butoh is a form of dance through which we can experience that the body is a wonderful material that can transform into anything: we can live any form of existence through our movement, our dance. As soon as we arrive to a neutral state, we are able to open to the forces of nature or the energies of the archetypes. As we give up the control, the body moves by itself, it flows on it’s own, as we witness this miracle from inside.
