EVOLUTION/REVOLUTION: THE 11th INTERNATIONAL BUTOH FESTIVAL THAILAND 2016

will take place in the capital of Thailand, Bangkok, December 9 -18, 2016. The featured artists for this year’s event are Takayuki Takita (Japan), Yuko Kawamoto (Japan), Rosana Barra (Brazil/Spain), Tony Broer (Indonesia), Calé Miranda (Brazil) and Teerawat Mulvilai (Thailand). We also have a special collaborative work presented by Thai artist together with japanese artists.

Also featuring a Butoh symposium with Takashi Morishita (Japan), curator of the Hijikata Tatsumi Archive.

Butoh was born in Japan in the late 1950s by Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo. Since then this revolutionary art form that caused riots and chaos on its first presentation to public audiences, continues to evolve on a global scale after 57 years. 

Revolution implies change, EVOLUTION/REVOLUTION seeks to follow the evolution of that change, the initial revolution to what is present day Butoh.
