'There are an infinity of ways in which you can move from that spot over there to here. But have you figured out those movements in your head, or are we seeing your soul in motion? Even that fleck at the tip of your nail embodies your soul… the essential thing is that your movements, even when you're standing still, embody your soul at all times' - Kazuo Ohno

KAZUO OHNO

Kazuo Ohno, died in 2010 aged 103. He was one of the pioneers of butoh,Japan's striking contribution to contemporary dance. Butoh, which incorporated elements of existentialism, surrealism, German expressionism, kabuki theatre and eastern spiritual thought, was a reaction in part to the horrors of the second world war.

I recommend finding some clips on YouTube to get an idea of Butoh in motion.
