Japan's 103-year-old Butoh dancer is no more

Kazuo Ohno had been dancing for over half a century and died of respiratory failure at a hospital in Yokohama.

Ohno brought the Japanese modern dance style of Butoh to a wider international audience. The form is characterized by slow movements executed in a low crouched position and performers often wear whiteface make-up.
