“Allows you to feel time slowing down in the ritualized, repetitive actions"—The New York Times
The world-renowned Butoh dance troupe Sankai Juku is known for their elegance, refinement, and emotional depth. Directed, choreographed, and designed by Ushio Amagatsu, the group’s founder, this piece is a meditation on the anxieties acutely felt by many in the past few years. With KŌSA, excerpts of Amagatsu’s previous masterpieces come together in Memorial Auditorium to create a catharsis to behold.
The Sankai Juku performance on Sunday, October 8 at 2:30 PM is canceled. The Saturday, October 7 at 7:30 PM performance will continue as planned.
