Safe Hiatus

With sadness, and with a terrific need to respond in some way. Not knowing words, or combinations of words for these feelings, clearly in transition, as we are.

The much planned for Butoh Between Festival for May 2020 has been cancelled. All programming at OuterSpace is also cancelled until further notice. Our international artists have stopped travel plans. We are going dark so that we may transform, to find our present in the purpose of community and survival. We will communicate as we can, and urge you to share in ways that nurture generosity and open heartedness toward every one of us.

Wishing you health & sanity during a most surreal time. 
We encourage each other to support feeding and housing our local communities. To remain engaged, and responsive to each situation.
To trust that our body/mind will know how to respond. To cultivate self practice, mindfulness, and respect for all beings.

“Like what we know of the virus so far, we are uncommitted to anything particular. We mutate with the times.”

Thanks for supporting us. We will be back ASAP.

“Butoh brings a sense of finding something unique from deep inside each individual, not in beauty but based on real human experience, to share with audience,” said Zalek. “To me, Butoh offers a deepening sense of familiarity with human existence.”
