The modern art of Butoh, a form of expression that emerged in Japan during the 1960s combining theatre, German Expressionist dance style, and improvisation, will be presented in a new workshop and performance by blushing poppy productions.
Nicole LeGette, creator of blushing poppy, has studied butoh with its masters around the world since 2000. Her new workshop FERTILE SOIL seeks to bridge the gap between ‘butoh body,’ ‘butoh performance,’ and ‘butoh sense.’ LeGette has found this ‘sense’ to be applicable to other forms of live art and wishes to expand its prevalence in them. Those interested can register online for the April21-22nd workshop that will meet Saturday from 11:30-4:30PM and Sunday 2-3PM at Links Hall.
In honor of blushing poopy’s 10th Anniversary Season, LeGette and an all-male ensemble will perform a new work, disRuptureEnrapture, also at Links Hall April 27-29th. Tickets are $12 in advance (or $15 at the door) and may be purchased online. Students and seniors receive discounted tickets for only $10!
