Kazuo Ohno, died in 2010 aged 103. He was one of the pioneers of butoh,Japan’s striking contribution to contemporary dance. Butoh, which incorporated elements of existentialism, surrealism, German expressionism, kabuki theatre and eastern spiritual thought, was a reaction in part to the horrors of the second world war.


I recommend finding some clips on YouTube to get an idea of Butoh in motion.

Your body is just a vessel through which you experience this plane of existence. Don’t agonize so much over how your body looks or what others think of it that you miss out on living a happy, passionate life. You have so much more to offer the world than your appearance- your shell. You’re starstuff. Act like it.
