"Butoh, Synergic Global Art" with a Butoh performance by Patricia Miranda & Yasmina Chavez and a musical performance by Hermon Farahi & Julian Tanaka.

For Art 434: Contemporary Japanese Art History by Dr. Aya Louisa McDonald

This project is an exploration of the Japanese dance style butoh through a careful study of its artistic and theoretical propositions as well as the historical context from which it emerged. It will be presented in the form of a performance as the result of a collective and individual process of investigation. As a group project this presentation attempts to reveal the implications of Butoh in contemporary artistic practices such as music, performance art, installation and the visual arts in general. The artists have chosen the term synergy because their aim is to show the potential ability of individual organizations or groups to be more successful or productive as a result of a merger.
