Japanese Dance-Art: Butoh

I can’t recall where I ever learned about Butoh, the japanese dance/performance/style of movement that uses white body makeup and slow hyper-controlled motion, that verges between the playful and grotesque. It’s…utterly fascinating. I don’t know if it’s beautiful, hilarious…or better left un-described. I have a couple of youtube videos I’d like to share that highlights Butoh dancing, and a documentary link for those who are really interested.
