Butoh Workshop by Nobuyoshi Asai

Conducted by
Nobuyoshi Asai

Nobuyoshi Asai practiced street dance at an international level during his youth. For a year, he joined the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre in New York. He started his own company, Sudbury, in Japan where young artistes joined their creative resources giving international performances. In search of a more profound interior approach, he joined Dairakudakan butoh company in 2005 before becoming a permanent dancer at Sankai Juku with whom he performed all over the world. In 2011, the Pola Art Foundation provided him grants to pursue his choreographic and artistic researches in Berlin. The following year, he obtained the Japanese Government Study program for Artists and spent a year in Tel Aviv, attached at the Batsheva Company and also collaborating with the alternative artists of Clipa Theatre. Striving to embrace a freelance career — in order to explore dance and choreography further and also collaborations / creations on photography and plastic arts — he now lives and works in France.
