With Butoh *X*, ButohKan Mayu provides a platform for artists and arts that are related to the basic ideas of Butoh. It offers classes and workshops of different methods which support the exploration of the self and aim at the free and personal development of the participants. Its core is the coaching-class Butoh *X* by DaniMayu. Dancers of all genres who are interested in including elements of Butoh into their work are invited to take part. Following the application process, two to three artists or teams will be selected to develop and present their new performance projects. In the course of three months, they will be accompanied in the design process and given guidance on the realization of their projects and concepts. The aim is a co-production with the opportunity of a public presentation. The ButohKan Mayu may be used on individual arrangement. The actual extent of the guidance can be arrange but at least once a week is obligate. At the end of this workshop a final showing will take place at the ButohCenter. If the preview doesn't convince, the showing may be postponed.

The income of the final performances at the studio will be shared among the artists.

Because this project hasn't any personal or public grant, the cost for guidance, organization, performance have to be covered by the applicants. A payment by installments is possible.

Dancers and choreographers with new solo, duo or trio projects (concepts) may apply independently of age, origin and education. All forms of expression that have contemporary dance, choreography or performance art as their starting point are highly welcome. A training in Butoh is not a prerequisite, the inclusion of ButohElements under the guidance of DaniMayu during the process is mandatory.

To apply, please send a short project description along with a CV, list of works, references, DVDs and video links to:
