“The most mysterious and last nature we encounter is our body.” – Keiichi Ueda

ButohOUT! is a new festival celebrating the unique nature and cultural dialogue through the powerful performance medium of Butoh. Originally called ‘Dance of Darkness,’ Butoh emerged out of Japan in the late 50’s and goes beyond the confines of specific culture, gender and religion, aspiring to universal expression that touches the true nature of humanity. Exploring the theme of body, nature

and landscape, ButohOUT! Evokes the spirit of Butoh by questioning ‘darkness’ which we may carry in this contemporary society. The festival will offer a series of workshops where participants will come together to develop a new work under the direction of Melbourne based renowned Butoh practitioners Yumi Umiumare and Tony Yap. These original pieces will be presented together with local guest artists including Weave Movement Theatre, and international guest artist Agung Gunawan from Indonesia.

We welcome all participants who are interested in exploring and igniting their true nature!
