Ko Murobushi (JP)

Enthusiastic Dance on the Grave

Three men beautiful enough to die for are dead. Their skin shines silver-metallic while they keep falling to the ground, accompanied by the magic-like, solemn sounds of “Baïlèro” from the famous Chants d’Auvergne. Widely considered the legitimate heir to the legendary inventor of butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata, Ko Murobushi has uncovered fascinating atmospheres and body images for this male trio. This dance is intended to take place upside down. Which enthuses the unconventional doyen who bursts with unfathomably youthful energy. Using this energy, he instigates another death motif in the second part of the evening: an “Enthusiastic Dance on the Grave”. Besides utmost tension, an anarchic basic attitude towards reality dominates this quintet of which a special “Vienna version” is about to be developed. Because it is here that Murobushi addresses what he calls “the core of butoh”, or rather, the unspeakable itself, the impossible experience, emptiness as indifference – the indescribable shadow of Hiroshima.
