“Nikon Flower (Eternity in a Moment)” butoh performance and Shamisen Butoh Café “Tadaima” By Ima Tenko+Kiraza
Caitlin Coker writes,
Kiraza, a Kyoto-based butoh dance company, is known for portraying archetypes of Japanese culture with a punk-kitsch spin. Their performance at Nishijin Factory Garden presents the avant-garde dance form Butoh in an intimate theater, which was previously a Nishijin weaving factory. This nostalgic space retains its weaving loom and wooden pillars. In this space, accompanied by live shamisen, Kiraza`s white-painted bodies dance the perpetual flower- a dance of spark, emptiness and the eternal now.
