At the beginning there was one question:
Butoh – what is that?!  -  How does it work?

The festival is organized in several interlocking parts:!'19  -  Theme:
"The intolerability of merciless prosperity"

This led to the idea of an European Butoh meeting which was held first in 1995.
It was called! and as a result of the huge popularity among choreographers, participants, audience and media, a regular festival has emerged, which is since then a highlight at Schloss Broellin every 4 years.
What was formerly a pure Butoh dance festival has today become an eXchange project for Butoh and contemporary dance. Nevertheless the festival is still firmly anchored in Butoh, this Japanese expression dance.


The work period provides the opportunity to be taught in different styles by all the invited choreographers.

In the production phase the learned will be  condensed into choreographies by the choreographers in order to stage a dance performance.

At the end there will be two public performances, accompanied by visual artists and live musicians. They form the artistic end of the festival, in which all participants present the results of their work in stunning
dance spectacles across the entire castle grounds.
