A wonderful workshop for children and families, with dance, mask and object making inspired by the Japanese form of Butoh.  Come and dance and make masks and objects as we create playful rituals to summon Kooks and Spooks through Butoh!  

Step inside an imaginative world and experience the Japanese artform of Butoh. Get ready to move, shake and make funny shapes with your body, as we jump headfirst into a world of imaginative spirits. 

Renowned performance makers Yumi Umiumare and visual artist Jacqui Stockdale will guide this workshop. 

Suitable for children 3 — 12 years but all are welcome. 

Let’s find Kooks and Spooks and dance together with them!  

This project has received an Annual Grant from Yarra City Council.


Cost $7.50 per child
