"Eclipse" A Butoh performance by Yuri Nagaoka and Seisaku

"Eclipse" (Mexico City performance. December, 2015)

I just saw 30 minutes of gestural and body transformations based in a concrete choreography of inner images, in what I only understand as a pure work of Butoh.
Even though I was expecting a longer (and probably more touching) performance, I was happy to confirm that Seisaku and Yuri Nagaoka are very congruent with their work from training to performance.
I have to accept that I enjoy when the Mexican public is somewhat lost facing a Butoh work that doesn't show the more known (and easy to digest) acrobatic and danced style they're used to clap and cheer here. I'm sure they feel like something is missing...
