Kazuo Ohno is a documentary about the 97year-old dancer Kazuo Ohno, the founder and living legend of the Butoh-dance. He still gives dancing-lessons at his studio in Yokohama. "Butoh" is the "step in the dark", inspired by the German Expressionist Dance. There are two other main characters beside Kazuo: Yoshito Ohno, his son who dances with him, speaks for him and organizes his belongings, a very big support. And as well Tanya Khabarowa, as a wonderful contrast, a young Russian Butohdancer from St. Petersburg, who has won several international prices with her dancing group "Derevo"in the last years.
Kazuo: „I´m an old horse with young heart.“
