2013 Butoh Fest: Highlight Performances

  • Unspelled – by Yuko Kaseki (Japan/German)
order of language spilling
spelled and un-spelled voice, spine, fingernails, shadow
broken a part and puzzled landscape in body
breathing the air between
observer, past and I and spelling
 A solo dance performance confronting the body landscape,
before its configurations of language nor orientation.
Deconstruction and Regeneration of being, territory of emotion, sexuality, and
geometrical weight.
Chorea to oscillate death and birth,
Rhythmically piling up dust of memories
Cut out moments of silence.

The Spirits Play 《靈戲》

Inspired by "the Spirits Play", the script by Kuo Pao Kun, it is a production of music, dance and video art.

This is a rare collaboration between Germany, Japan, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia, where involved artists are working together to create opportunities for collaboration and growth, this would also broaden awareness and understanding of each other’s culture, values and tradition.

The script is based on The Spirits Play by Kuo Pao Kun. A notable work in Singapore theatre, The Spirits Play acutely pieces together the intense agony, guilt and turmoil that occur as the price of war. It serves as a memorial towards death, and a reflection upon life.
