Join Our Butoh Co-Creation Playground

August 17–24, 2024

Immerse yourself in the transformative world of butoh in our upcoming week-long retreat 

For just €200, with €100 due upfront, you can participate in a unique collaborative event that promises to be an 'Asbestos Hall',   Hijikata's Studio experience—intensely close, creatively fertile, and delightfully unpredictable.

Experience Butoh Living Together

Nestled in a serene environment, five performers will share a home, turning daily activities like cooking and eating into integral parts of the creative process. This shared living arrangement fosters a deep connection and understanding among participants, enhancing the creative synergy.

Daily Workshops and Creation

Each day is structured around two main classes—from 10 AM to 12 PM and from 2 PM to 5 PM. We will work mostly outdoors, engaging with the elements and drawing inspiration from the natural surroundings. This direct interaction with the environment will not only inform your personal butoh practice but also contribute to the collective performance we will develop throughout the week.

Culminating in Performance

The week builds up to a try-out on Friday and a public performance on Saturday, August 24 at the  Wielewaal Festival.

This retreat is more than just a workshop—it's a creative incubator designed to explore the depths of butoh through collective living and shared experiences. Secure your spot now and be part of a unique artistic adventure that will challenge, inspire, and transform.
