"A Woman in Butoh" lecture by Natsu Nakajima

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of butoh with a lecture by butoh master Natsu Nakajima, collaborator of butoh founders Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata. Natsu Nakajima founded her company Muteki-Sha in 1969, making it one of the oldest Japanese butoh companies to be seen in North America.

For the performing artist to have complete trust in his body is a must. Our bodies have accumulated the memories of human history and still continue to do so. One’s body [contains a] treasure box of expression. Yet nowadays we humans live in the virtual world more and more; our minds are losing contact with our bodies. Listen to the inner world of the body.
