July 29 Outdoor Dance Performance

Butoh was inspired by the wild landscapes of Northern Japan. Nature continues to be an inspiration in creating its improvisational movement. Haruko Nishimura, performer and art director of Seattle's Degenerate Art Ensemble journeys to Portland to collaborate with Mizu Desierto, Tracy Broyles and Kestrel Gates in an outdoor work inspired by permaculture. All four performers are quite noted for their creativity, individualistic movement styles, and shear physical chops. The performance takes place in a large yard in St Johns. Presented by Water in the Desert 9233 N. Bristol Avenue 7PM $10-15
