The Depression to Resurrection Show: immersive butoh dance happening

The Depression to Resurrection Show will be an immersive butoh dance experience with participatory and ritualistic elements, journeying into the underworld of darkness, dreams, and mystery through the senses and spirits, then to what emerges after all else falls, is released and left to die. What if depression is our modern myth in becoming we must all take to reach wholeness? Can we re-member something deeper within ourselves, in our bodies, psyches, and spirits? How do we move through this internal journey alongside one another?

Butoh dance, formed in post WWII Japan, is unafraid to touch deeply human themes, emotions, and aesthetics, beyond what is socially accepted, and combines aspects of contemporary dance, theater, improvisation, and ritual. In dancing the edges, we can find turning points for healing, acceptance, and transformation of nature, which includes ourselves.

… I wasn't sure where I was when I first entered but the darkness excited me so.

About Min:

Min Yoon is a butoh dancer and ritual performance artist. They are dedicated to exploring ways to uncover the deeper, more intuitive nature in how we relate to our being and the world, through art, butoh dance, and philosophy, and what may arise from this uncovering. Min started butoh dance, out of the darkest moments in their life, to dive into deeper landscapes and research the images, opening, and movement we need for our times. Butoh is an expressive mode of dance that seeks to find what is deep within, beyond what is socially accepted in a pursuit of new expressions of truth. They continue their devotion to dance and experiments to blur the spaces within performance and ritual toward a sense of collective embodiment and connection, beyond socio-political divides. They have studied and performed with master butoh teachers, Atsushi Takenouchi of Jinen Butoh School in Italy, Anastazia Louise of Bad Unkl Sista, and Mizu Desierto of Water in the Desert. Min’s artistic works have been funded by Kultuuri Kaupilla in Finland, The City of Oakland, and The Battery Club of San Francisco.
