CAVE's biennial Butoh Festival, “The CAVE New York Butoh Festival” celebrates and promotes the origins and international evolution of Butoh Dance while strengthening the local community with performances, workshops, and conversations with the artists. Events will be presented at Dixon Place in SoHo, Dance New Amsterdam in TriBeCa and CAVE in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Butoh-kan is the training program of CAVE and its resident performance company Garnica LEIMAY, which is now two years old. Butoh-kan offers rigorous physical training and enriches students with first person contact with international masters. It is an integrative training opportunity for the dancers, actors and interdisciplinary performers, creating a platform for the future development of new work. Intensive training sessions have been conducted at CAVE’s studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for the last two years.
A striking roster of master teachers and performers take part in performances, artist talks, workshops and participatory opportunities for scholars, it offers a unique platform for the development of local dancers and encourages active dialogue on Butoh’s origins, evolution and global status.
