“An Oguri performance is a profound journey unlike any other.” Los Angeles Times
Butoh master Oguri and Zen artist Hirokazu Kosaka -- two of the most original creative forces in Los Angeles -- come together once more in a dark new dance and media work that transmutes the mythic power of Faulkner’s fiction into exalted physical form. Accompanied by Paul Chavez’s visceral live music score, Oguri and his three-member troupe, Honeysuckle, draw on the movement vocabulary of Butoh dance -- an uncanny mix of subtlety and stark expression -- to delve into the heart of Faulkner’s gothic family narratives, crystallizing the drama into unforgettable tableaux. The dancers perform on a dazzling set designed by Kosaka, who blends video with a collection of everyday objects to evoke the brooding textures of Faulkner’s Deep South.
