Examples

  • You don't have to know anything about Butoh to enjoy "Tobari," which offers 90 minutes of meditative visual beauty that encapsulates all the visual markers of the form: a stark stagescape; the bald heads; the blank expressions made blanker still by the white powder that covers the dancers' bodies; the creeping trajectories across the stage; the silent, open-mouthed cries of inexpressible anguish; the stunning physical mastery and control of the subtlest alterations in position.
