Butoh-Fu "Hans Bellmer“
Butoh-Fu (Butoh notation) are words or sentences that may sound like poetry. First used by Tatsumi Hijikata, they became a unique method for Butoh choreography. Each Butoh-Fu deals with a wide ranged of worlds (organic, non-organic, abstract or oneiric) and individually changing nuances which are organically linked to each other. Butoh-Fu has its own specific references, especially from surrealist art.
On this evening, after a short general lecture on Butoh-Fu, we present a Butoh performance inspired by dolls created by Hans Bellmer (1902-1975).
Butoh Notation Lab
Founded by Maco in April 2022, it aims to explore and create Butoh-Fu. Currently, five performers invited by Maco have come together to explore the Butoh-Fu inherited from Hijikata and Yukio Waguri and create new choreographies.
The theme of the first edition is based on Hans Bellmer's dolls created in the 1930s; later the Nazi party labeled his works as "degenerate art".
Butoh: Adina Mohr, Rareș Grozea, Nile, Anja Binder and Bratan Bratanov
Lighting and sound: Hikaru Inagawa (4RUDE)
