Butoh Painting Performance “MIDORI” at RADIANT SPACE
Butoh Painting Performance “MIDORI” RADIANT SPACE https://radiantspacela.com IBUKI KURAMOCHI's performance “Midori” fuses the beauty and craft of live painting with the soul and rhythm of contemporary Japanese Butoh dance. The term "choreography" is problematic for Butoh. Choreography in the West implies a set sequence of movements. Butoh is very different - timing and movements are improvised. "Midori" is the Japanese word for "green." In this performance, Ibuki used Japanese Matcha powder mixed with water, and also used Japanese sumi ink. Matcha is symbolic of Japan and also symbolic of nature and purity. https://www.ibuki-kuramochi.com
