" A celebration of butoh dance"

NEW YORK, July 30 -- From October 23 to November 25, 2009, CAVE will present its fourth biennial Butoh Festival, "The CAVE New York Butoh Festival -- Butoh-kan Phase" (http://nybf09.caveartspace.org), to celebrate and promote the origins and international evolution of Butoh Dance while strengthening the local community with performances, workshops, and conversations with the artists. Events will be presented at Dixon Place in SoHo, Dance New Amsterdam in TriBeCa and CAVE in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Butoh-kan is the training program of CAVE and its resident performance company Garnica LEIMAY, which is now two years old. Butoh-kan offers rigorous physical training and enriches students with first person contact with international masters. It is an integrative training opportunity for the dancers, actors and interdisciplinary performers, creating a platform for the future development of new work. Intensive training sessions have been conducted at CAVE's studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for the last two years.

This year's festival presents a striking roster of master teachers and performers. With performances, artist talks, workshops and participatory opportunities for scholars, it offers a unique platform for the development of local dancers and encourages active dialogue on Butoh's origins, evolution and global status.
