Yoshito Ohno is dead

9 January 2020

We deeply regret to announce the death of one of the greatest personalities of butoh and dance art – Yoshito Ohno – son of the extraordinary Kazuo Ohno. Yoshito Ohno was born in Yokohama on 15 July 1938. He was the only person, in whose body, the history of the world’s butoh dance that transcends borders and defies any classification, has been so literally and directly stored. On the one hand, he was the son of Kazuo Ohno (1906-2010), from whose spirit he drew inspiration on a daily basis and with whom he began to learn to dance at the age of 13. On the other hand, from the moment he performed in Forbidden Colours [Kinjiki] choreographed by Tatsumi Hijikata (1928-1986), Yoshito Ohno also became his diligent student, thus becoming the heir of two fabulous butoh artists that embodied two divergent creative perspectives.


Commemorating the artist and his visits to Poland.Yoshito Ohno passed away on 8 January 2020. He will remain one of the most important creators and promoters of butoh in the memory of it’s admirers all over the world
