In this stunning work of artistic homage, Takao Kawaguchi recreates the iconic work of Kazuo Ohno, the founding father of butoh, a form of contemporary dance characterized by extreme images created in response to the atomic horrors of WWII. As Kawaguchi performs on stage, Ohno merges, surfaces, and recedes with each scene, resulting in a powerful duet between Kawaguchi and an illusory image of Kazuo Ohno.
