Festival Sponsors/Donors

The first CAVE New York Butoh Festival in 2003 was funded entirely by the dedicated artists and co-founders, whose love for the art form and belief in its worldwide cultural, creative and spiritual contributions was paramount to any financial restrictions. The 2nd Festival in 2005 was supported in part by The Berlin Administration for Science, Research and Culture; Japan Foundation; Kirin Beer (the 2005 official Beer Sponsor); Mr. Tatsuo Kubota; The Model family, the Rockefeller Foundation Multi-Arts Production/MAP Fund; Materials for the Arts; Mertz-Gilmore Foundation; Pranayama Art Inc.; Taiyo Pacific Partners LP; UNIQLO (the 2005 official Corporate Sponsor); and the Village Voice (the 2005 Media Partner).

Thanks to the following venues for their support:
Anthology Film Archives, Dance Theatre Workshop, Japan Society, the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center/CUNY, Safe-T Gallery, Movement Research, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Noguchi Museum, PS 122 and Theater for the New City.

Thanks to all the festival artists who are so generous with their energy and efforts.


The CAVE New York Butoh Festival is truly a grassroots effort, made possible through the donated time and money of CAVE executives, staff and numerous volunteers. There is a great need for financial support.


Everyone involved in the New York Butoh Festival has donated their time and effort to make this festival possible. We still are in need of more help! If interested, let us know how much time you can commit to the festival at nybutohfestival@CAVEartspace.org.
