The INSTALLATION SPACE and ELEMENTAL present a New Dance/Butoh peformance by Zack Fuller.
Zack Fuller’s own original dance works frequently involve collaboration with cutting edge musicians and have been presented by Movement Research at Judson Church, CAVE/Leimay’s New York Butoh Festival, Plan B in Tokyo, Mobius in Boston, The Dance Hakushu Festival, The Asheville Fringe Festival, and elsewhere.
Butoh is a Japanese word for dance that refers to a broad spectrum of movement practices that share in the legacy of postmodern dance experimentation that began in Tokyo in 1959, when dancer/choreographers such as Hijikata Tatsumi began applying the tactics of surrealism, neo-dada, and anti-art to the body itself. Generally more figurative, visceral, slower, and less conceptual then most U.S. and European contemporary dance, it embraces the grotesque through a body informed by complex imagery that is kept in darkness; never revealed directly to the audience.
The performance will last approximately 40 minutes. Space is limited, admittance is free on a first come first served basis.
