Katsura Kan: the body as a "time-ship" Katsura Kan is a native of Kyoto and a Master Butoh artist among the ranks of Japan's first generation of Butoh. He performed with the seminal Butoh troupe "Byakkosha" (1979-1981) known for its austerity and integrity, rather than theatrical glamour. He is a celebrated solo artist, collaborative performer and choreographer. Kan has worked with what he calls "minority dancers" all over the world, in remote locations throughout Africa, Europe, South East Asia for the past 28 years, in addition to performing his creative works in cosmopolitan culture.
