free your body

join a revolution

transform your mind

Free Butoh or Butoh Libre is a humble approach to alter, extend, and break down butoh convention.

Often described as avant-garde, free butoh can also be described as an attempt to return butoh to its primitive, often shamanic, roots with an emphasis on collective improvisation.

The Free Butoh School is an experiment by Honza Svasek.

We deliver low cost experimental intensive (r)evolutionary self-organizing events, workshops and classes in different locations.

Please see the planning for details.

Butoh (舞踏 Butō) is a form of Japanese dance theatre that encompasses a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movement.

Butoh arose in 1959 through collaborations between its two key founders Hijikata Tatsumi and Ohno Kazuo.

Like jazz, butoh is difficult to define but easy to recognize. There are many styles and methods.

Common features of the art include playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics and extreme or absurd environments.

Free Butoh is a matter of liberty, not price. Liberty concerns the absence of arbitrary restraints and takes into account the rights of all involved.

Students at the Free Butoh School are free to experiment without any judgement, dogma or rule and are only limited by the rights of others.

The Free Butoh School teaches for free and tries to charge the lowest possible basic fee for food and accommodation.

To make this possible we welcome DONATIONS and support.
