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.
