Butoh and the Dead Bird(s)

Our guests tell about how they marry butoh and contemporary dance training, to create this work about birds--dead birds that compel questions about life. The choreographer-dancer, Yeow Lai Chee, stirred by encounters with images of birds in unusual settings explores the duality of things, concrete and abstract. This work is also informed by the writings of Ibn Arabi: The Universal Tree and The Four Birds. This dance explores “death” with the living; with dances moving on the floor and the audience, quite still in their seats.
