flower petals fall
but the flower endures
Butoh-informed dancers and live artists, under the artistic direction of Marie-Gabrielle Rotie, will perform a series of vignettes.
They will embody the flower in its stages of blooming, fragrance and decay, to underscore the transience of all existence.
Butoh creates a rich, open space for the audience to enter and explore their thoughts and dreams.
Invited solo dancers:
