Director: Kamal Musale
Butoh is confronting, sexual and serene Japanese dance. This film documents a selection of stunning performances from one of its best exponents, Carlotta Ikeda. Butoh is unlike any other form of dance tearing at the flesh of social constructs and laying bare the primal and spiritual bones of us all. Strange camera angles, brilliant colour and truly surreal dance sequences brings Butoh out of the screen and onto your lap in a squirming mass of bodies.
