Wednesday saw another fine night of avant garde revelry at Urbanguild.
Undoubtedly the highlight of the evening was the flamenco/butoh collaborative performance in tribute to the late Kazuo Ohno & La Argentina (Antonia Merce). It was a very powerful, joyful, weird and wonderful celebration, a meeting across cultures and a promise; for as Bridget Scott said to me after, the dance goes on. Here are some clips (with sincere apologies to Chris Cobilis for not being able to catch his act).

And if that has tickled your fancy, you can see a longer video of that last performance here: Scenes from ~A Tribute to Kazuo Ohno & La Argentina~
