The Japanese dance, butoh, is a way of activating the body’s cell memory. We are in a state of constant development. The universe is here and now, life and death are an ongoing story. In engaging with the performance, the individual takes personal responsibility – both as a player and as a spectator – feeling themselves to be no longer in an individual drama but rather part of a global connection.
The GHOST 3 Butoh Soundart Festival uses the synergy of dance, sound, image and installation to seek answers to the fundamental human question of the meaning of life and transience through the mutually potentiating expression of these art forms.
The cornerstones are formed by Alisa Berger’s film work, walkable installations by Wolfgang Schäfer and sculptural works by Yukie Beheim. On two days, selected spaces become the setting for this performance by six dancers and six sound artists from Japan, Germany and Belgium.
The diverse rooms at the former industrial bakery are transformed into an experiential space that offers the invited artists atmospheric inspiration for the experiment of creating the greatest density of experience in the self-determined encounter between dance and sound.
Ghost 3 Exhibition: 5.- 20. June, Opening times: Thursday to Sunday 2pm to 6pm
