Butoh Dance

Butoh Dance Class with Jerry Gardner. Butoh is a dance-based performance art that originated in Japan in the later part of the 1950’s and has since become an international art form. Butoh focuses on the presentation of the body and it’s movement as the means to reveal abstract or interpretive images that arise from within. Butoh does not necessarily try to tell a literal story, but rather creates surrealistic and dream-like images that sink into the audience’s psyche, thus connecting the performer and observer. No experience necessary. Physical stamina and willingness to take emotional risks is recommended. Classes/workshops are taught at various times. For more information call (801) 355-6375.
