Coney Island Butoh & Beyond

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 8:00pm

For 3 evenings only, 16 Butoh dancers, under the guidance of Mexican master teacher Diego Piñón, will explore body rituals on Coney Island USA’s Sideshows by the Seashore stage. International Culture Lab gathers this idiosyncratic group along with a revue of acts beyond Butoh. Each evening will be a unique extravaganza.

AND “BEYOND”:  Philadelphia blues and rock musician Wharton Tract; underground performance and alt-burlesque artist Miss Mary Cyn; performance artist Sick Nick the Bellevue Boy; punk-country-noise musician Paige Johnson-Brown from the band Irrevery

"My vision for the stage is to use public offerings to go beyond personal limits, beyond the ego, and without pretension, to renew the highest purpose of the sacred language of dance.” --Diego Piñon 

On Sunday, April 2 only, dancer and master teacher Diego Piñón will present an offering toward bridging cultures and healing the disharmony that has developed between North and South, between Mexico and the United States.
