BB07 Beyond Butoh Festival


> 7 minutes > 7 Deadly Sins

BB0# series has been directed, curated and facilitated by Tony Yap and Yumi Umiumare since 2001 to provide the local Butoh communities an opportunity to investigate, explore and stretch the limits of what we understand as the intrinsic meaning of Butoh. The long-term vision for this series is a grander scale festival encompassing all idiosyncratic interpretation of Butoh in performance from local and International artists.

In BB07, Tony and Yumi will curate ten selected short works of 7-minutes in length. This event will be site specific and performed in the very intimate space at Reading Room in Fitzroy Town Hall. Contrasting from the huge space of BB06, a 6-hour performance last year with a dozen 7-minute, private and deadly short works this year.

The Reading Room will be a shared space between both audience and performers in a seamless event of overlapping 7-minute performances.
