'"Again and again we are reborn. It is not enough simply to be born of the mother's womb.  
Many births are necessary. Be reborn always and everywhere. Again and again." 
Tatsumi Hijikata 

Butoh is an avant garde dance philosophy/method that was created in Japan at the end of the 50s by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno.
Butoh is not a technique but rather an approach to dance which stems from within us and is connecting us to our essence as well as to nature, the universe, our ancestors and the cycles of life and death.
The main elements that it explores are metamorphoses, dance through imagery, presence, awareness and the tension between opposites. The aim is to free the body from its mundane preconceived set of gestures and movements and thus allowing us to access a deeper and more authentic essence of movement and archetypal expression. 

"My dance is far removed from conventions and techniques, it is the unveiling of the inner life." 
Tatsumi Hijikata
