I am so honored to part of this incredible festival.
The New York Butoh Institute Festival will be at Theater for the New City in
OCTOBER 18-21 2018
with 16 fierce female butoh artists from all over the world! Featuring Mariko Endo; Azumi Oe; Nurya Chana; Kenren So; Natalia Cuellar and Raimundo Estay; Margherita Tisato; Sindy Butz; Alana Rosa and Junia Flavia d'Affonseca; Sophie Amieva and Will Atkins; Raquel Almazan; Yoshiko Usami - Yokko, Melissa Lohman and Nicole Vivien Watson
I am performing opening night, October 18th with Will Atkins to perform Medusa Butoh, inspired by the Myth of Medusa. This piece presents classic female archetypes and rejects them, and Medusa simultaneously transcends her condemnation. More importantly, this piece shows the duality of male and female, and our need for each other to survive as a species.
