Why Butoh Fever, you may ask. There is a saying in Japanese, "If you sit on a rock long enough it will get hot." This is the 9th festival and it is steadily getting hotter. More and more international artists want to present their work in Thailand. Also, in Japanese culture the word for the number 9 is similar to the sound for the word that means "pain" or "distress". Katsura Kan has often likened Butoh as an illness that once infected, people's lives change. In other Asian cultures, the number 9 symbolizes completion of the three realms of existence; Mind, Body, and Spirit. Butoh is currently being practiced as a healing therapy as well. Butoh Fever may be your cure or your disease.
