Description


Butoh America unearths the artists and networks that popularized butoh dance in the Americas, through a focused look at key producers and festivals in United States and Mexico.

Over the ensuing decades, highly-trained dancers and theater artists who were looking for innovative approaches to performance found their way to butoh training and wove butoh methods into their own genres, bringing butoh further into the mainstream.

Tanya Calamoneri stitches together the flow of people and ideas, highlights the connections in the butoh diaspora, and incorporates interviewee perspectives regarding future directions for the genre in the Americas.
