Tibet with butō
“The rhythm of the now does not reach me through light, it resonates within every particle of the darkness of the body. It’s darkness that binds us, opening up the horizon where we finally meet. Don’t be deluded by the mirage of light, this rhythm will become dance even when your eyes are closed.”
Two eagles were circling above when they first played at the feet of the Himalaya, in Dharamsala. The meeting of Tibetan music and Japanese butō in two wanderers through whom traditions of East and West, mountains and valleys live together. Their common language is the sounding rhythm in the darkness of the body.
