butoh imporvisation by Ko Murobushi Ko Murobushi is one of the best known and acclaimed butoh artists in the world and is recognised in Japan as a leading inheritor of Hijikata’s original vision of butoh. He studied with Hijikata in 1968, briefly ‘giving up’ dance to become a “Yamabushi” mountain monk. Upon re-entering society, his pioneering vision led to the creation of: butoh troupe Dairakudakan together with Ushio Amagatsu, Akaji Maro, and others; a female butoh company, Ariadone with Carlotta Ikeda, and two years later a similar male only Butoh-group: Sebi. He continues to teach and tour internationally to this day.
