Kazuo Ohno and Butoh

A very interesting performance artist. Kazuo Ohno (and Tatsumi Hijikata) was a founder of the Butoh dance movement. A type of Japanese performance where images and ideas are translated into rich movements and gestures. Typically it deals with grotesque and taboo subjects. Aided by curious Japanese styled costume and makeup design, It's unsettling and very peculiar to say the least,I love it!
