It is rather so that all the way from my birth till I die, I want to dance all the time. In Eiko Hosoe's film Kamaitachi, Hijikata improvises dances in the rice fields, as the innocent, the fool, possessed by the spirit of a demon who haunts there. Min Tanaka used to improvise his dances naked, outdoors, which led to that he got into jail, but even there, he tried to go on. Butoh Fu can be described as a series of cues largely based on incorporating visualizations that directly effect the nervous system, producing qualities of movement that are then used to construct the form and expression of the dance.

Taka directs them to the cushions in the corner, to chairs with aromatic grass boxes in which to rest their feet, to the cushions around the Ikebana display.

In Eiko Hosoe's film Kamaitachi, Hijikata improvises dances in the rice fields, as the innocent, the fool, possessed by the spirit of a demon who haunts there. A summer storm.

I would like only to see a performance as interesting as my dreams; to know that it is a matter of life and death and musical cyclones. Smooth grey bark dappled pale orange on the tree trunks. The light of the sun hits the surface, the shadow of the stone. Beneath the branches, the twiggy detritus of vanished winds, rusted ploughs and harrows, a mound of worn-out tyres.
