Free Butoh is a matter of liberty, not price. Liberty concerns the absence of arbitrary restraints and takes into account the rights of all involved.

Students at the Free Butoh School are free to experiment without any judgement, dogma or rule and are only limited by the rights of others.

The Free Butoh School teaches on donation, and charges the lowest possible basic fee for food, accommodation and organising.

To make this possible we welcome DONATIONS and support.

The Free Butoh School delivers low cost experimental intensive (r)evolutionary self-organizing happenings, workshops and classes in different locations.

Butoh (舞踏 Butō) is a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement.

Butoh arose in 1959 through collaborations between its two key founders Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo.

Like jazz, butoh is difficult to define but easy to recognize. There are many styles and methods.

Common features of the art include playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics and extreme or absurd environments.
