DIGITAL//REALITY(デジタル・リアリティ)は DANCE DANCE DANCE @ YOKOHAMA 2021 の連携企画です。コロナ禍の中で発達したオンライン「DIGITAL」世界を、現実の世界「REALITY」に戻す試みとして、国際舞踏フェスティバルを横浜・黄金町で実施します。 横浜で長年の歴史を持ち、世界に広く影響を与えた「舞踏」を紹介します。



Experience the current world of DIGITAL REALITY through Butoh in Koganecho, Yokohama!

DIGITAL REALITY, part of DANCE DANCE DANCE @ YOKOHAMA 2021 festival, is a one-time only international Butoh festival to be held in Koganecho that can only take place this year. Born out of the special circumstances that took all performers online in 2020, this is an attempt to entice people back to “REALITY”, while looking back to the “DIGITAL”.

Yokohama has a long history with Butoh, with key founders Kazuo Ohno and his son Yoshito Ohno living in the city for most of their lives. Despite this, Butoh is relatively unknown in Yokohama. This festival aims to introduce a new audience to Butoh, with a film by Kazuo Ohno, a live performance by his student Mitsuyo Uesugi, film screenings by international Butoh performers and a live performance by students who studied under Yoshito Ohno.

What is Butoh?
Butoh is a performing art that began in post war Japan. With roots in 1920s German Modern Dance, it began as a groundbreaking avant-garde form pioneered by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno. Tatsumi Hijikata’s Kinjiki (Forbidden Colours) in 1959 is often cited as the first Butoh performance, and Kazuo Ohno’s Admiring La Argentina popularised Butoh around the world in the 1970s. Today, there are Butoh festivals all over the world.

Crowdfunding Campaign

One of the key points of this festival is that we want to make it free, and not take any money from ticket sales, in order to give as many new people access to Butoh as possible. This project is receiving a partial grant from Yokohama City, but it is not enough to run the program and we are running a crowdfunding campaign to raise the rest of the funding we need. Please consider supporting our project.
