23 Mar 2019 Once Only Event
Led by renowned performance artist Yumi Umiumare, this free workshop introduces the playful and imaginative world of Japanese Butoh to children and families.
Playing with everyday games like peekaboo and hide-and-seek, participants will jump headfirst into a world of transformation and shape-shifting, unleashing their inner animal, kook and spook. This free indoor and outdoor workshop is suitable for children and people of all ages – no previous dance experience is required to take part.
Convent Kids is an exciting year-round program developed by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation for children and families to explore and create art together. The Convent Kids program is generously supported by City of Yarra as part of the Investing in Community Grants Program.
This Convent Kids workshop is being held at the Convent as part of the ButohOUT! Festival, presented by Yumi Umiumare and Takashi Takiguchi in partnership with the Abbotsford Convent Foundation. ‘ButohOUT!’ brings Butoh, a Japanese theatre and dance form, into the context of Australia’s landscape, culture and history, through a series of workshops, performances and a public forum.
