Butoh, since it’s beginnings in 1959, has always confronted notions of tradition, legacy, culture, innovation and contemporary manifestation. How does an art form that is born from a specific time within a specific cultural climate remain relevant to the world and evolve, grow and expand beyond its borders? Butoh is a prime case study within our time.
Diego Piñón’s Butoh Ritual Mexicano is the distillation of his extensive research in body-based energy methodologies since 1975. BRM is primarily derived from Diego’s Mexican heritage with traditional energetic practices and Japanese butoh under the guidance of Kazuo Ohno, Yoshito Ohno, Min Tanaka, Natsu Nakajima, among others. Diego’s extensive artistic research includes modern dance technique, contemporary movement and theater practice, and therapeutic body modalities. He performs and teaches throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Mexico using Butoh Ritual Mexicano as a means to transform personal and collective divisions through the dancing body and to cultivate a deeper connection to our shared humanity.
