Ledoh is an internationally-renowned multi-media performance artist.  Ledoh trained in Japan under Butoh Master Katsura Kan (member of the radical 70s collective BYAAKOSHA), and has since electrified audiences around the globe for over 15 years with his riveting solo and ensemble performances.  Born into the Ka-Ren hilltribe, Ledoh came to America at age 11 to escape the oppression of his people by the brutal dictatorship holding power in Burma. As Artistic Director of SALT FARM, Ledoh choreographs with a raw movement vocabulary and directs the production of sets, video art, and musical scores to create a vital, visceral brand of live theater and site-specific installations that can soothe then shock within the span of a timeless moment.
  We live in the body which is form proceeding through time.  When I am fully in the body, I experience a sense of timelessness.  Movement is one avenue to experience the moment.  When fully standing in the moment, the past and the future are easily accessible.  I am a filter allowing energy and experience to pass through me.
