Japanese dance goes beyond the formalism of Kabuki and Nō.

Japanese dance goes beyond the formalism of Kabuki and Nō.

“Sometimes in early spring I would fall down in the mud and my child’s body, pitiful to its core, would gently float there. I try to speak but it’s like something has already been spoken. I have a feeling a knot of wood somewhere in the lower abdomen stuck there in the mud, that is screaming something.(…) But I can, I know, declare that my Butō started with what I learned from the mud in early spring, not from anything to do with the performing arts or shrines or temples. I am distinctly aware I was born of mud.” (Tatsumi Hijikata)
