Tune in to State of the Art on The Breakfast Spread this Wednesday April 24 when choreographer, Yumi Umiumare, chats about the upcoming ButohOUT! Festival.

The Japanese dancer and choreographer is known for her distinctive and inimitable style with her works featured at nurmerous festivals both here in Australasia, and also in Europe.

Beginning in 2017 the ButohOUT! festival has brought together visceral and emotive cultural exchanges through theatre and dance. The art of Butoh originates from Japan in the 1950s and attempts to explore both the joys and sorrows of our existence. 

ButohOUT! Festival Performance of 'Forbidden Laughter' runs May 1-12 at The Abbotsford Convent
