Ko Murobushi is one of the best known and most acclaimed Butoh artists in the world and is recognized in Japan as a leading inheritor of Tatsumi Hijikata’s original vision of Butoh. He trained and performed with Hijikata from 1969, and later briefly gave up dance and trained as a yamabushi (an ascetic mountain monk). Once back into society he founded the Butoh Group DAIRAKUDAKAN. He created the Butoh-magazine Hageshii Kisetsu (Violent Season) and founded a female Butoh Company ARIADONE for which he choreographed a number of pieces. Two years later he founded an all-male Butoh-group: SEBI. He also created his unit Ko&Edge Co. with three young Japanese dancers, with whom he presented Handsome Blue Sky at the JADE 2003 Hijikata Memorial in Japan. Currently based in Tokyo, Ko continues to tour internationally throughout Europe and South America.
