Hello everyone, My name is Norihito Ishii, a Butoh dancer.
Currently, I belongs to the Butoh group "Sankai Juku" and Disseminating the charm of Butoh to the world.
The global pandemic does not seem to be settled, and the world is becoming more and more anxious.
This time I will create and provide new works through crowdfunding, I want people to find time to relax and take a deep breath.
In addition, by systematizing and communicating a unique method related to "weakness", I want to relieve the tension that you have both physically and mentally.
Thank you for your "Big" support!
