I will dance in Italy this Summer as part of the festival En chair et en son. The festival takes places in Benevento from 23rd to the 25th June, and its aim is
"to encourage new collaborations for, up to now little explored, creative investigation. Placing the dancer's body at the heart of the machinery of digital sound projection 'acousmonium,' to confront him with this 'music of imaginary,' the primitive pleasure of the sound perception, to open the butoh dancer's perception to new creative paths. From then on, the richness of the acousmatic sound environment can interact with his body and open new ways of motricity and expression. Butoh and acousmatic sound proceed from the same will of transgression, from the same desire of a return to the essence of things (the flesh, the sound)."
My collaboration will be with the composer Michel Titin-Schnaider, and the dance will take place on Saturday 24th June, the feast of the birth of St John the Baptist.
