Dancing My Own Loss (Video from my Butoh vlog. Recorded in Newfoundland)

Doing Butoh under a Lighthouse in Ferryland, Newfoundland (2012)

Dancing My Own Loss 

This was a Butoh improvisation I performed under the lighthouse in Ferryland, Newfoundland, Canada.

There was all an atmosphere around: green grass and rocks all around; behind, the lighthouse you see in the photograph; in the front, the sea covered by fog (I could only hear the sound of the waves hitting the rocks and the wind). Everything I tried to follow with my sight was lost in that fog. I felt lost. That was an unique moment for moving. I put some music playing with my phone and started to move.

Butoh is liberating in all senses.
