Mushimaru does Butoh
Fujieda Mushimaru a natural physical poet from Japan was a part of the Experimental Art Festival in Hongdae and made for some enjoyable experiences on my end. He performed at the opening of the festival with Bae Dallae and danced with his group as she painted their bodies. I saw him again on Tuesday at the B-boy Theater.
Performing Butoh, avant garde performance art with origins in Japan in the 1960s.
“Butoh is the dead body standing straight up at the risk of life”. Tatsumi Hijikata
He’s been forming for decades and has travelled all around the world. His addition to the festival was amazing and clearly appreciated by all audiences.
