Reaching Out to Talent in India


This fundraiser known as the India Life Resonance Art Butoh Scholarship Program will give talented economically-challenged Indian nationals the ability to study the Subbody Method at the Subbody Butoh School.

The school has existed sice 13 years and brings creators from all around the world. The facility contains two dance floors, an amphitheater, and a beautiful view of the Himalayan mountains.

What is butoh?

Butoh began as a 60s Japanese rebellious dance theater that stretched the definition of dance, theater, and beauty. Now there is certainly international curiosity due to its psychological, improvisational, and even shamanic elements. 

Subbody Butoh School History

The story behind Subbody in the Himalayas goes back 20 years. Before then, Rhizome Lee (Japan-based) had been touring much, but was unsatisfied with the degree of research he was engaging in. A thought crossed his mind that he needed a perfect location in the world to engage in serious study of butoh based in Hijikata's method. The point was not to copy Hijikata but to go underneath the artist in order to discover his endless creativity.

It took 7 years later in Dharamsala, India for Lee to complete the school built specifically for the creation process of butoh. The building has been up 13 years, and Lee is still engaged in endless research. This is not a place to dip your feet in. This is a place to transform your entire life to butoh. Exactly what Hijikata expected of a butoh dancer. All or nothing.
