Seattle Butoh Festival 2021 review

UW Associate Professor Justin Jesty reports on the recent Butoh workshop and series of performances which he attended during the Seattle Butoh Festival 2021.

“The festival explored the female body’s connectedness to celestial rhythms, to memories accumulated in the transgenerational echoes of habit and sensibility, and to other lives in the ongoing event of birth and rebirth. Together the performances testified to the strength, resilience, and boundless creativity that come from outside the self, in moments of precarious transformation and in offering oneself up to interconnection with others”
