The Ex…it Butoh Festival happens every 4 years and it was time for another this August of 2015. I was so grateful to have attended and met so many interesting butoh aficionados and teachers. The attendance of students was around 80 and there were 6 teachers total. We had 6 hours of classes a day of workshops with different teachers on the first week and on the second, we worked on our choreographies with two Butoh teachers. I was selected for Yukio Waguri (Japan, student of Tatsumi Hijkata) and Valentin (Russia).
My life is taking on a drastically different chapter after this festival. I know it will always be viewed as one of those big moments and possible turning points in my life. Though the next Ex…it Festival takes place 4 years from now, I am already planning to return.
