The Shadow Body Speaks

Please participate in the lively discussion at this symposium event, which considers the artistic, social, and political context that gave rise to butoh in Japan and breakdancing in the US, with an examination of the current cultural climate. The panel is facilitated by Susan Manning (Northwestern University), and includes Sondra Fraleigh (the State University of New York, and acclaimed author of Dancing into Darkness: Butoh, Zen, and Japan; Dance and the Lived Body; and Dancing Identity: Metaphysics in Motion), butoh dance artists Yumiko Yoshioka and Diego Piñón, and breakdancer Daniel “BRAVEMONK” Haywood.
