Kanazawa Butoh Kan: “Bellows for Boys and Smoke Balls for Girls”
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the founder of butoh Tatsumi Hijikata’s death, in 2016 Kanazawa Butoh Kan created this new production inspired by Hijikata’s piece “Yameru Maihime” (The Sick Prima Donna). This mystical tale follows a group of boys and girls trying to transform themselves into little creatures. Through butoh dance, they explore the themes of darkness, the human body and their place in the universe.
“Was I reincarnated from these? And at dusk, falling and skinning my knees on the roadside, I must keep running and bleeding alone.” – Shirasaka Sei
