MORE ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
The festival is a collaborative effort between DAIPAN and many artists and organizations, and it has been growing over time. This is DAIPANs second year partnering with Shoreline Community College. DAIPAN is the only group consistently bringing national and international butoh artists to Seattle and producing an annual festival that features both guest artists and local performers. From its birth in Japan nearly 60 years ago, Butoh has proven itself a vital and innovative global performance genre with elements of dance, theater, and performance art.
This multifaceted festival kicks off with a Butoh Parade and performance/installation in Pioneer Square on July 5 during the First Thursday Art Walk, moving on to workshops and performances in Shoreline, the University District and Greenwood. The second week includes a free, family-oriented workshop and site-specific performance on the Elliott Bay waterfront, followed by an evening with Mushimaru at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington, and finishing up with a weekend Butoh retreat in nature.
This years festival is made possible in part by funding from 4Cultures Arts Sustained Support, City of Seattle Office of Arts & Cultures Neighborhood & Community Arts Program, and The Morgan Fund at Seattle Foundations Puget Sound Initiative.
DAIPANbutoh Collective is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike.
