Sankai Juku

Founded in 1975, the Tokyo-based company Sankai Juku offers contemporary Butoh creations characterized by their elegance, refinement, and emotional depth.

The troupe returns to The Joyce with KŌSA, a compilation of reimagined excerpts from Sankai Juku’s vast repertoire.

“By using no decor, only pure dance and the philosophical perception of images, I tried to bring everyone into my universe with as much curiosity as that which inhabited us at the first creation,” says choreographer and Sankai Juku founder Ushio Amagatsu.

A sublime visual spectacle, KŌSA is a thought-provoking homage to the rich legacy of Japanese dance theater.
