Photograph of Butoh dancer Natsu Nakajima, used to promote her residency and performance at Randolph Street Gallery, June 13-July 11, 1993. </br>"Japan's highly expressive dance discipline comes to Chicago for the first time ever when RSG presents the Internationally acclaimed Butoh artist Natsu Nakajima in a five week residency. Having studied with master founders Kazuo Ohno and Tatsumi Hijikata during Butoh's formative years, Nakajima has consistently pushed the boundaries of her art, transforming herself from apprentice to independent choreographer and artistic director of Muteki-sha Dance Company. Butoh's conceptual concerns, manifesting themselves in emotionally charged and stark, stylized movement and haunting images, have made a tremendous impact on contemporary dance, performance and theater. The range of residency activities will offer diverse and challenging opportunities for the Chicago community to be engaged by this innovative art form." --[Source: Event calendar -- May/July 1993]
