kae-ishimoto

Kae Ishimoto (Japan)

Butoh

Kae Ishimoto was born into a family of traditional Japanese dancers. She began studying traditional Japanese dance from the age of three, jazz dance from the age of four, and has since trained in modern, contemporary, and butoh dance. Since 2002, she has been working with Hijikata’s disciple, Yukio Waguri. In 2011, she performed her solo “Transformation Girl”, choreographed by Waguri using the Hijikata method of butoh, in 7 countries in Asia and Europe. In 2004, she co-created a company with 8 musicians called Wangnin Bunmei (“Fool’s Civilization”). She and her company have been invited to perform in 13 countries in Asia, Europe and the US. Kae’s dance style blends Eastern and Western movement influences to create a genre-less form of expression that can express both specific and universal themes.

*Butoh dance is said to have started in the late 1950s in Japan, with Hijikata Tatsumi as its founder. Hijikata’s butoh method specifically uses image-language as choreography, and engages with Japanese movement traditions as well as Western literary and artistic influences. Butoh places a special importance on the quality and energy of movement, seeking to encourage a localized sensitivity to movement, through connection with the imagination. It particularly interrogates ideas of an uncontrolled, distorted, or collapsed body, and is sometimes termed the ‘body in revolt.’
