KYOTO Butoh-kan, Nakagyo

4.7
#10 of 61 in Nightlife in Kyoto
Last year, Art Complex started production on the Butoh-kan Project, aiming to increase the prospects for viewing Butoh within Japan. As a part of this undertaking, we are opening the Butoh-kan to feature ongoing Butoh performances so that Kyoto becomes “the place” to see Japanese Butoh dance. As the Butoh-kan gains a reputation, we anticipate that news of such a permanent place to see Butoh will also have an impact on incoming tourism to Kyoto.

  • This was the strangest experience that i experienced during my month long trip in Japan (in a good way). Be warned, there is partial nudity. The performer i watched male and basically naked so be sure the people you go with are comfortable with that. Would I recommend this? Definitely. It was a unique experience that made me want to look more into the history of this art form.
  • Intimate and intense, movement and non verbal storytelling in a traditional Japanese storehouse. live music accompanied the performance. Nothing like this anywhere else... Highly recommend
