  5. If you've never experienced Butoh before, you're missing out. This is the raw and primal emotional expression that true artists and creative spirits thrive one.
    The Anenome Dance Theater is putting on a fundraiser to support their passion for dance and the larger performances in October. Come and enjoy live music and dance with a silent auction, drink a glass of wine and support Ashevilel Butoh and Anenome Dance Theater Troop, all for a small donation of $20. Go to ashevillebutoh.com or anenomedance.org for more details. You won't want to miss out.
    What is Butoh:
    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. Following World War II, butoh arose in 1959 through collaborations between its two key founders Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo. The art form is known to "resist fixity"[1] and be difficult to define.

    All proceeds go directly to create new choreography by
    Sara Baird of Anemone Dance Theater
    Julie Becton Gillum of Legacy Butoh
    and Jenni Cockrell of Strange Daughters Butoh
