<Silver Knife> by Goblin Party from Korea will be performed at Contemporary Dance Festival presented by the Japan Society. <Silver Knife> by Goblin Party, which delves into the conflicting sides of female identity, conveying complex human emotions through the eloquent body movements of four women, will be featured.
The festival also features, from Japan, a revival of butoh master Akira Kasai’s renowned work <Pollen Revolution>, specially recreated to be performed by his son Mitsutake Kasai. And from Taiwan, choreographed by emerging star Kuan-Hsiang Liu, <Kids> is a tribute to death and the choreographer’s late mother. Performed to voice recordings of Liu with his mother during her fight against cancer, this modern-day grief ritual is full of idiosyncratic movements and moments of serenity and peace.
