High in the mountains of Michoacán, in the forgotten town of Tlalpujahua, one man has started a school of contemporary ritual dance that bridges east and west, ancient and modern forms. Students from around the world travel to this small town to study with Diego Piñón, founder of Butoh Mexicano Ritual Dance. A fusion of aesthetic principles stemming from the Japanese avant-garde and indigenous Mexican ritual, Butoh Mexicano has forced a collision of belief systems, and a confrontation with the values and traditions of the surrounding community. This book explores the faith, labor, and sacrifice involved in changing and exchanging ideas of movement, magic, and otherness in a world with geopolitically stringent yet ideologically shifting borders.
