butoh research

“Arguments about the body-mind or the controller versus the controlled are mostly carried out by using two words “choreography” and “improvisation”. But these
words are totally inadequate because the decision making or objectifying subject is
totally blurred in the peculiar state of consciousness of Butoh as an embodied primary
process.” Toshiharu Kasai

Hi! I’m interested in speaking with someone who does Butoh in Chicago about music. What would be the best way to go about doing that?

Many thanks in advance!
