Clipa Theater is hosting Japanese artists once again. Two experts in their fields, for two unique solo performances - the creations of Butoh artist Nobuyushi Asai and mime artist Shu Okuno in one unforgettable evening.
The combination of Asai and Okuno confronts Butoh and modern mime and creates a productive dialogue from the early days of butoh art, when Kazuo Ohno met Marcel marso. Both approaches presented in two solo performances, enable a peek at two different worlds of images and rear physical expressions.
False Spring, a creation by Nobuyushi Asai, presents dutiful and fragile butoh, dealing with the essence of memory. The absolute space, costumes and movement design, are in a continues dialogue and struggle with the wonderful aesthetic tradition of the SANKAIJUKU group, in which he was a member for the past years.
Mime's anthology, a creation by Shu Okuno, presents a seemingly naïve story, about the attraction between the butterfly and the flower, with the precision and perfection that the classical mime and his Japanese tradition offer together.
