Sankai Juku @ Northroptoday's A-List: "Performing under a blanket of lotus flowers floating peacefully above the stage, the seven members of the Japanese company Sankai Juku create a dreamlike scene through their hypnotic butoh dancing. Butoh, a dance form that emerged from the ashes of post-nuclear Japan, combines artfully slow movement with painful and beautiful images representing the main competing forces in the world. Sankai Juku is perhaps the best-known butoh company, and it returns to the Twin Cities for the first time in 10 years. Its current work, performed by dancers who are painted white from head to toe, uses seven scenes filled with haunting images of sand and water, ash and blood, life and death. The result is a work that aims to be nothing less than a meditation on the meaning, or at least the experience, of our existence." For the full article, go here.
