Inspired by Japanese author Jun’ichiro Tanizaki’s famous essay “In Praise of Shadows,” Kota Yamazaki’s latest dance explores the subtle beauty found in light and shadows. Through a collaboration between six dancers from Japan, America, Ethiopia, and Senegal, (glowing) reexamines the fundamentals of Yamazaki’s butoh training. Where the forms intersect, (glowing) posits a universal communication where the avant-garde and traditional ideas can harmonize. Learn more about Kota Yamazaki at picaresourceroom.org.
