Using movement in relationship to breath and rhythm, Mushimaru Fujieda has created his own style of dance which he refers to as an expression of Natural Physical Poetry (Tennen Nikutai Shi). Mushimaru’s work symbolically embodies the human tragedy during and after WWII, the “ashes” from which Butoh arose. He has worked as an actor, scriptwriter, producer, writer and director since 1972, and has performed throughout the world for more than 20 years.
DAIPAN, a 10-day butoh festival, welcomes Mushimaru to Seattle for the first time. Butoh is a unique form of Japanese dance theatre that includes captivating techniques and for dance, performance, or movement; performers are often dressed in white with white face paint.
