One of Japan's most acclaimed contemporary dancers who draws on the butoh style, Akira Kasai performs his daring solo work - an almost surreal journey through time, cultures, and states of being. He begins the performance costumed as a woman in a raucous kabuki drama. The costume flies away, madness sets in, and Kasai is transformed into a street dancer, a solitary actor, and a contemporary traveler.
"A dazzling tour-de-force display by a man who has achieved utter mastery of the art of solo physical expression"
