A rare chance to learn Butoh from our international guest, Butoh dancer Eri Chian from Osaka.

Fee: $40

By Pre-Registration only

Eri Chian is a Japanese dancer from Osaka, Japan. In 2011, she started performing in a Butoh dance company based in Kyoto, while developing her solo work. Now Eri performs around the world: in 2016, she was an artist in residence (AIR) in Amsterdam, has danced at the opening ceremony of Nuit Blanche in Kyoto, and has taught and performed at the 2018 Taiwan International Butoh festival. Eri Chian tries to follow the spirit of butoh created by Hijikata Tatsumi, while allowing for a process of experimentation in her life.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
