Improvisation for butoh body and clarinet
trails of movement
outline of body
the fragility of space
TO-EN's project combines the butoh dance and the music of a clarinettist Marcin Malinowski. The artists meet to seek the subtle links between movement and sound. Body and sound resonate in silence, sometimes motionless. Together they build a pulsating space and fill it. Is this what we see still a movement or just a trail, a blurred image shimmering in a distance?
