Butoh dance performance

4Rude presents New Butoh Artists

Series 01

Tatwerk, Berlin 9th march 2019

„Rose open at night“ is a butoh dance-theatre solo performance which takes inspiration from traditional japanese dance „nihon buyo“ and the work of Hans Bellmer, the artist who created disturbing life-size dolls in the 30's and used them as models for his surrealist photography.

Dolls and puppets are from the very ancient history special objects because of their nature of simulacra: their aspects simulate the human one, mirroring emotions and needs. At the same time they insinuates the artificiality of human beings themselves, suggesting the assembled and manipulable nature of their identities.
