Yoshito Ohno 1938 - 2020

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Yoshito Ohno, who departed this world at 6:06 pm on 8 January 2020, at the age of eighty-one.
His stage career spanned more than six decades, with his debut in 1959 when he appeared at his father Kazuo Ohno's side in the modern dance work The Old Man and the Sea, and one month later, with Tatsumi Hijikata in Forbidden Colours.
The Ohno family along with staff members at the Kazuo Ohno Dance Studio and the Kazuo Ohno Archives are filled with a deep sense of gratitude for all your kindness and support over the years.
