Master Class by Koichi Tamano & Hiroko Tamano
AnKoku-Butoh translated Dance of Darkness.
when you close your eyes, there is Darkness.
you are looking into your inner space.
" in Dancing, " says Tamano,
"we aim an internal space. there is a cosmos within the cosmos, and the energy is released from this inner micro-cosmos....The body is made into a flat surface, and breeze blows through the internal organs .... It is a kind of poetry ...
You read the poem in your fashion, and add your own definition, images of things wiggling and crawling on the ground, images of a hell which goes beyond everyday life, of angels who go beyond daily life."
