For the first time in 20 years, Sankai Juku, Japan’s internationally renowned butoh dance troupe, returns to Hancher. Utsushi has been crafted from restaged excerpts of choreography by company founder Ushio Amagatsu. Butoh, which has been called Japan’s most startling cultural export, is enthralling, surprising, and often deeply moving. Utsushi is the perfect introduction to the mesmerizing work of Sankai Juku.
