Lee Rhizome

Lee Rhizome was one of the 4 butoh masters at eX...it!'15 , the biggest butoh festival in the world, where one of the other teachers told me:

"Lee is not a butoh teacher, he is a shaman."

This is very true.

Lee does not even call himself a teacher.

He feels that teaching is too much binding for his students. Instead he feels that he is a midwife. A midwife carefully assisting in the birth of a unique creation he calls a subbody.

He is not following convention and has his own model of transmitting butoh to his students. It is impossible to explain, it has to be experienced.

Have a look at the video lecture to get some feeling...
