In celebration of both the 100th Anniversary of the Society and the 101st birthday of legendary butoh co-founder Kazuo Ohno, Japan Society presents Kazuo Ohno 101: Three-Week Butoh Parade in conjunction with the CAVE New York Butoh Festival. A rotating program over three weeks features several of the most legendary pioneers of the butoh movement:

Week 1 (October 10 & 11, 13 & 14) Maro Akaji + Kochuten
Legendary artist with his company of younger dancers present stunning work from their repertoire.

Week 2 (October 18-20) Eiko & Koma
The MacArthur ‘Genius’ grantees in a new collaboration with renowned experimental pianist Margaret Leng Tan.

Week 3 (October 25-27) Akira Kasai & Yoshito Ohno
The parade ends with a splash this final week, with solo performance by Kazuo Ohno’s son Yoshito Ohno, the world premiere of a collaborative piece created by Akira Kasai with emerging U.S. butoh artists and a marathon of U.S.-based butoh dancers curated by CAVE.

Sennichimae Blue Sky Dance Club

PS 122
150 First Ave
New York, NY 10009
(212) 477-5829

Sennichimae Blue Sky Dance Club, an all female butoh troupe, draws on the artists' rich cultural inheritance but gives it an odd twist. At once mysterious, grotesque, upbeat and amusing, their work lies somewhere between circus clowning and butoh. (Part of Turning Japanese, the city-wide celebration of Japan Society’s Centennial)
