Butoh Workshop with Nathan Montgomery: Sunday, Feb. 12 @ 2PM


According to Ushio Amagatsu, the leader of the Sankai Juku Group, "Bu means 'to dance' and to means 'to stamp the ground.' In the traditional sense, buto is a ritual dance performed by farmers when they celebrate the harvestm, but it is also a revolutionary movement in the dance world of the 1960s.... it is the cycle between birth and death, life and death." Join Butoh dancer Nathan Montgomery for a free workshop on this extraordinary dance expression on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2:00 PM.
