Antonio Leto is an italian butoh dancer, composer, and researcher based in his birthplace Palermo where he devotes his life to his family and to butoh dance performing as a way of self-consciousness and self-development. He took part to many of Sayoko Onishi's choreographies as a solo performer and collaborated to the creation of some of her solos as a composer and assistant director. He collaborates with butoh dancers and artists coming from various disciplines, giving life to extemporaneous performances of contemporary theater interacting with installations, artificial soundscapes and urban contexts. He also composed music for short movies, dance and shadow theater for children taking part to many national and international festival.

He wrote some articles about architectural acoustics for some international congress, and about theatre and dance performing and he was also chief theatre editor for SuccoAcido newspaper in 2008/2009.
