The Dance Center Presents: Tadashi Endo - Fukushima Mon Amour

Event Type
Event Description

"Japan is a beautiful country. Japan is a fascinating country full of myths. 
Japan is the only country that witnessed the atom bomb.
The catastrophe caused lots of terror and grief.
Grief created solidarity that turned people
into the extreme and sensitive Japanese that we know today."

                                                                 - Endo

Tadashi Endo, director of the Butoh-Center MAMU and the Butoh-Festivals MAMU in Göttingen, Germany, embodies in the truest sense of the word the wisdom of both the Western and Oriental dance and theatre traditions through the enigmatic and beguiling Japanese dance style butoh. In this solo butoh work, Endo dances the pain and tragedy experienced by Japan in the wake of the 2011 tsunami and resultant Fukushima nuclear disaster—and the hope of reconstruction that carried the nation forward. You have only one chance to take this journey with an internationally recognizedbutoh master—don’t miss it.
