■ What is Butoh?
Butoh dance is a post-war avant-garde movement in Japan that emerged as a reaction against Western styles of dance. Unlike dances that focus on developing the body's movements, Butoh seeks beauty even in a debilitated body, emphasizing the connection between the body and the subconscious for a more profound exploration of the human condition through body dialogue. Butoh dancers imagine their bodies as empty bags, and convey a sense of introspection by accepting their inner selves and not only positive but also negative emotions. This unique approach to dance has established Butoh body philosophy and attracted attention globally.

■What is Butoh?

Butoh was born in Japan in the 1960s. As the reaction against the imported modern dance, Butoh dancers focused on their body and mind influenced by rural culture. This attitude established a unique body philosophy and Butoh keeps attracting people all over the world.

AGAXART is an art collective that aims to enhance people's creativity through the exploration of the body, mind, and soul. It organizes and manages workshops, performances, and events. With the body manipulation techniques of Butoh as its main focus, AGAXART provides a place to face the inner world, which is difficult to express through language, and to discover diverse forms of expression. The group actively engages in exchanges with different cultures and promotes interest in local resources.
