Michael Sakamoto and the Breaks: Remixing the Butoh/Hip-Hop Archive

In this performative lecture, interdisciplinary scholar-artist Michael Sakamoto examines the corporeal, choreographic, textual and politico-historical influences and intricacies of his creative and intellectual practices. Rooting through the physical and spiritual record bins of his childhood to the present day, Sakamoto remixes himself into a hybrid expressive instrument to challenge fixed artistic identities and subcultural canons.
