DAIPANbutoh Collective is devoted to strengthening the presence of Butoh in Seattle and the Northwest, both by producing the work of its members and by bringing in international artists for performances and workshops. They have begun to focus more on outreach by educating and developing relationships with groups including veterans, prisoners, artists, philosophers, academics and contemplative practitioners. In doing so, they aim to deeply influence their community’s evolution.
