In Memoriam – Abel Coelho

We are deeply saddened to learn of the sudden passing of Performing Artist and UHM alum, Abel Coelho (MFA Asian Performance, 2009), in Kyoto on December21, 2017. Abel was a talented butoh performer and choreographer, and one of the people responsible for opening the very first theatre in Japan dedicated to butoh performance—the Butohkan, opened in 2017 in Kyoto. In addition to being an accomplished lighting designer and technician, Abel was a multi-lingual and truly multicultural individual, as well as a deep thinker and artistic dreamer always ready to explore ideas and artistic boundaries. UHM Dept. of Theatre and Dance honors his life and art. We hold him dear in our hearts and memories.
