Ko Murobushi (JP)

„quick silver“


“The first dancer was a smith”, Kô Murobushi claims. “The first dancer was a traveller.” And: “He had one eye, one leg, one arm.” But even before you may start to feel misplaced pity for him, the Japanese Butoh guru already makes fun of all the cultural fictions that present things as being “whole”. Murobushi’s solo piece “quick silver” isn’t funny, though: the body is conceptualised as being made of metal, and its “hardening by means of Butoh starts with a hammer”. It’s a pointy, ripped-up body that manoeuvres through sociality and nature with dark violence – a conflict as venomous as quicksilver, which is still used today to extract gold from the ground.

Duration: approx. 55 min.
