One of the major developments in 20th-century contemporary dance, Butoh combines dance, theater, improvisation and influences of Japanese traditional performing arts to create a unique art form that is both controversial and universal in its expression.Improvisation and innovation are both themes characterized in contemporary Butoh performance. As art critic Mark Holborn of the New York Times points out, “Butoh is defined by its very evasion of definition.”
