The workshop will be directed by Tom White, Betty Jo Costanzo and Styrous. For more than two decades they have created workshops domestically and internationally including a residency in Cyprus where they created and performed
ButohDrawing.

For more information about the instructors, please visit their websites:
Tom WhiteBetty Jo CostanzoStyrous and Kyung Lee.

The two-day workshop will consist of learning the Butoh discipline – which is a way to discover how to perceive the world through peripheral vision and all of our six senses – the elements of Butoh movement and performance.

The instructors will demonstrate how the act of taking a photo with Butoh heightened perception is a way of seeing the world around us in a very unusual way.  Smart phones and video cameras will be used to record and project the collected images into the gallery space.

The conclusion of the two-day workshop will be a Friday performance, where the participants will incorporate the concepts learned at the workshop, presented during the monthly 2nd Friday ArtWalk at
Gray Loft Gallery at 7:00 pm.
