A fan of Butoh since 70/80's, Kaoru Okumura studied Butoh in 1993 at Asbestos-Kan in Tokyo with Akiko Motofuji, Hijikata's wife, and also had her first performance there. After another long interval, she encountered Seattle Butoh dancers in 2008, which kindled her dream of sharing her own art. Since then, she has enjoyed working and performing with Danse Perdue, where she experiences how a body bridges the soul and the world
