Following his company’s sold-out shows in 2002 and 2003, maverick butoh master Akaji Maro, who studied with butoh movement founder Tatsumi Hijikata and founded Dairakudakan in 1972, returns to Japan Society with the theatrically explosive works created by members of his company. Under Maro’s mentorship his company members have choreographed more than two dozen works under the title Kochuten Series. Two of the latest Kochuten works will have their U.S. premieres: Tiger’s Cave: Butoh Boot Camp (Butoh: Tora no Ana), a new all-male work from Kumotaro Mukai; and the all-female Yupiters, choreographed by Yuko Kobayashi. Special appearance by Akaji Maro for all performances.
