Seattle International Butoh Festival 2018: Awakenings to be held July 5-15

Seattle's DAIPANbutoh Collective's 9th Annual Seattle International Butoh Festival 2018: Awakenings will include on-stage and site-specific performances, including several free offerings, along with lecture-demonstrations and butoh workshops by guest teachers. Highlights include the following events. For the complete schedule of special events, performances and workshops at www.daipanbutoh.com/seattle-butoh-festival/ Advance tickets available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3428956 including festival passes.

Featured International Guest Artist: Mushimaru Fujieda
Japanese butoh and performance artist Mushimaru Fujieda of Yakushima, Japan has performed internationally for over 20 years. He refers to his body of work as an expression of 'Natural Physical Poetry.' Mushimaru has also worked as an actor, scriptwriter, and director since 1972. Butoh arose out of the recent tragic history of WWll, and Mushimaru's work symbolically embodies the human tragedy during and after the war. (http://www.notus.dti.ne.jp/~mushimal/)

This year's festival includes the following performances.
For a complete schedule of special events, performances and workshops visit www.daipanbutoh.com/seattle-butoh-festival/

FRIDAY/SATURDAY, JULY 6 & 7 at 8pm at Shoreline Community College Theater (16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline)
'Natural Physical Poet' - MUSHIMARU solo 'period' - Choreographed & Performed by Mushimaru Fujieda - Sound Design: Lars Crosby, Phillip Kevin Brehee
'Walking Butoh' was created as a 45-year memorial of Mushimaru Fujieda's performance activities. After premiering at the Sapporo International Butoh Festival in February 2017, it was performed at various locations in Japan, as well as Paris, Barcelona, Gdansk, Tel Aviv, Portland, Mexico City, and Hong Kong.

Also, on July 6 new works by Sheri Brown, Dhyana Garcia Snyder & Alan Sutherland and by Kaoru Okumura Aoi Lee.

Also, on July 7 new works by Joan Laage & Shoko Zama and by Helen Thorsen and dancers.

Tickets: $22/$15 at Brown Paper Tickets; $25/$18 at the door.

SUNDAY, JULY 8 at 7pm at Taoist Studies Institute (225 N 70th St)
'Escapes & Reversals' - Created & Performed by Ginger Krebs (Chicago)
'I'm awed by the colossal efforts of human beings to speak back to systems of power, to become alive for ourselves and fully conscious. 'Escapes and Reversals' imagines a roast: honey-glazed, seductively garnished and incapable of quick get-away - 'making do,' fighting for its life and transforming the severe limitations of its circumstance into testaments of power and grace.

'Death = Change' - Text & Movement by Mizu Desierto (Portland) - Sound: Indira Valey
'A number of years ago, my great-great Grandfather Lorenzo Fillicetti - an Arbëreshë-Italian from the small village of Parenti, Calabria - visited me in a dream. He asked me where I came from and what I was so afraid of & stating, 'all death is is a change.' In a recent pilgrimage to my ancestral homeland, I am confronted mostly with the losses. I mourn a lot. I resuscitate wild queer witch dances. I fall in love with fluidity.'

Tickets: $15 at Brown Paper Tickets; $18 at the door.

THURSDAY, JULY 12 at 6pm at Myrtle Edwards Park (3130 Alaskan Way along the north end of the downtown waterfront)
'UNTITLED' - Created & Performed by Haruko Crow Nishimura (Seattle) - Music by Joshua Kohl
'UNTITLED' is a small excerpt from Nishimura's recent work-in-progress project 'SKELETON FLOWER,' which will be presented by STG (Seattle Theatre Group) as a full-scale production this fall/winter in Seattle. 'SKELETON FLOWER' is a semi-autobiographical exploration of a creative person's struggle with identity, depression and the awakening of feminine power where healing and transformation are fueled by the secret medicine of fairytales.

'The Water's Edge' - Explore, Examine, Experience
Local visual artist Isobel David begins her year-long investigation of the edges of water through visual art with DAIPANbutoh Collective dancers and visual artists at the Seattle International Butoh Festival. In nature, the boundary zone is a place of change and transition, actions and responses that are full of energy, creativity, inventiveness, origination of new species, and new growth. It requires a kind of faith to believe that this phenomenon continues in the face of cultural and climate disruption and the trajectory of loss of those ideals and forms which we rely on. At this event, we will explore the contrasts and transitions at this place of change.

This event is the first of many exploring the edges of water features, endless shorelines abutting a changing urban metropolis, and in the future, submerges with underwater kelp beds, making art on location at receding glaciers, and at transition to desert, through mixed media painting, photography, and performance art.

SUPPORT
This year's festival is made possible in part by funding from 4Culture's Arts Sustained Support, City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture's Neighborhood & Community Arts Program, The Morgan Fund at Seattle Foundation's Puget Sound Initiative, and DAIPANbutoh Collective's generous individual donors.
