I guess butoh is one of those hybrid movements that cross genres...<P>Here is an on-going thread on butoh in the Other Dance section that includes an explanation of what it is:<P><B><A HREF="http://www.criticaldance.com/ubb/Forum6/HTML/000042.html" TARGET=_blank>The Butoh thread</A></B><p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited November 16, 2000).]

I'm not an expert on Butoh by any means, but I always considered it "modern" or "contemporary" in the sense that it's post WWII and definitely not "folk" dance.<P>Certainly cultural influences are drawn upon in Butoh, but Martha Graham et al. drew on cultural influences as well, as we all do. It could be considered Eurocentric to class Butoh as "other," while US dance pioneers have been called "modern". Anyway, just something I've been thinking about...

Very good point, Marie. Butoh is afterall an expression that came about in the "modern" world, partially, as a reaction to the horrors of global war and genocide.
