January 16 Golden Joinery

You can never step in the same stream twice.

It is the same with butoh dance, reinventing itself over years and in each moment.

Portland dancer Meshi Chavez does that with his own butoh and tonight with a workshop class he has facilitated. The dancers, Sara Alizadeh, Brenna Jagne, John Johnson, Anita Kress, Tanya McCoy and Joe McLaughlin have taken inspiration from kintsugi. It is a Japanese way to repair broken ceramics with gold laquer - “golden joinery”.

At the Headwaters Theater - information and tickets link:, 55 NE Farragut St. #9. The theater is in the back of the building by the active railroad tracks facing Winchell Street. Map 7:30PM $18-25
