Butoh at Jessica's - Tender Start 4/17

Maureen "Momo" Freehill Performs Butoh at Jessica's Farm.

"Butoh ( 舞踏 ) is the collective name for a diverse range of activities, techniques and motivations for dance, performance, or movemen [...] It typically involves playful and grotesque imagery, taboo topics, extreme or absurd environments, and is traditionally performed in white body makeup with slow hyper-controlled motion, with or without an audience. There is no set style, and it may be purely conceptual with no movement at all..."

"Our current theme is Plants & Animals so MomoButoh practice partner Patricia and I vowed to engage at least one Significant Plant &/or Animal relative each day in a butoh dance exchange. So far, so good. We have engaged with trees, humans, sticks, roots, snails, flowers, anemones, herons, whales and spiders among others. Each relative has a message, a gift, a challenge to share. Each evokes a unique dance from us."
