ABOUT archana kumar

My introduction to Butoh happened in Seattle , back in 2003. In 2005 , i got the opportunity to work with a well known contemporary theatre director - MR Hiroshi Ohashi, based on Tokyo, Japan and I continue to work under his mentorship until this day. Since 2005 i have collaborated with many Butoh dancers of Tokyo through a unique collaborative project- Asia Meets Asia . Rehearsal sessions under Ohashi San are very intense , thought provoking and mentally n physically draining . It is through these sessions I got exposed to a deeper understanding of Butoh and Noh Theatre . I realize it is the philosophy and restrained practice of these forms that one only very slowly can learn to embody. There isn’t any visibly specific “technique “ to teach, rather it is a process of understanding and learning through rigorous mentoring.
