DAIPANbutoh Collective at Kubota Garden


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Lin Lucas of DAIPANbutoh Collective, performs "Wandering & Wondering," a butoh and soundscape experience in Kubota Garden on July 20, 2014. The handout from the previous year's performance describes butoh as "a contemporary avant-garde dance form which erupted out of the turmoil and loss of identity of post-WWII Japan." The movements are slow and controlled, and evoke both beautiful and grotesque elements. The dancers were accompanied by an enveloping soundscape of percussion, woodwinds and strings played by several musicians scattered around the garden.
