京都国際舞踏祭 ステートメント

Kyoto International Butoh Festival Statement

As a global Butoh platform, the Kyoto International Butoh Festival has hosted 25 dancers from overseas and 38 groups from Japan, with the first iteration being in 2018 and the second in 2019.
We pursue the “potency” of the body and spirit as manifest in the art of dance. Additionally we aim to nurture the ideas that have sprouted from Tatsumi Hijikata’s Butoh, here in our international city of Kyoto.
We would like to investigate why Butoh emerged in Asia, and what this art form has been asking of the bodies (and minds) of its practitioners – from an interdisciplinary and international perspective, using the body, culture and tradition as a foothold.
Kyoto generates a magnetic field that activates the inner minority. 
We hereby state that we will draw a future chart that expresses the “body” itself for beyond the generation.
