Kazuo Ohno



Dancing has never looked so frightening till Kasuo Ohno. Ohno, founder of Japanese Butoh, influenced so much of Japanese horror movies and in turn, current American remakes. Remember the girl from The Ring and how frightening her locked joint movements were?

Kazuo Ohno, a Founder of Japanese Butoh, Dies at 103, The New York Times.
