The CAVE New York Butoh Festival celebrates the origins and international evolution of butoh in a biennial series of performances, workshops, films and lectures featuring butoh greats Ko Murobushi and Yukio Waguri, and cutting-edge artists, including Garnica AcTs Lab interdisciplinary collaboration featuring Takuya Ishide, Yuko Kaseki and Daiji Meguro, as well as other U.S.-based solo performers. The third edition of the festival builds upon the successes of the prior two sold-out Festivals with six weeks of activities, including related events. The New York Butoh Festival is presented and produced by CAVE Organization, one of the longest running experimental art spaces in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

This performance is a part of Turning Japanese, a city-wide celebration commemorating Japan Society’s Centennial.
