- +

After taking last year off, the International Butoh Festival will return to Bangkok for the eighth time tomorrow. The event is organised by B-Floor Theatre, Butoh Co-op Thailand and Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. This year's theme is "Butoh Women" and the festival will feature workshops and performances by several Thai and international artists.

"This year's theme focuses on women artists because it is the eighth festival," says festival director Terry Hatfeild. "The number eight represents infinity, and women are the link to infinity because they are essential to the continuation of our species. We want to celebrate the contribution of women to our society through butoh. Women are often under-represented in all fields of work."
