New Solo by Marissa Moses
An improvisational embodiment of the stages of grief. Moses dives into the aftermath of trauma using inspiration from Butoh, a form of Japanese dance theater that arose post WWII.
Finding beauty and transcendence through the grotesque, dark, and twisted.
“When one considers the body in relation to dance, it is then that one truly realizes what suffering is: it is a part of our lives. No matter how much we search for it from the outside there is no way we can find it without delving into ourselves.”– Tatsumi Hijikata

“Western dance begins with its feet firmly planted on the ground whereas Butoh begins with a dance wherein the dancer tries in vain to find his feet”– Tatsumi Hijikata

I admire artists who can work alone. Musicians, visual and performing arts will never be too easy for anyone even those who love what they are doing deeply. This is why people tend to be part of a group. There's nothing wrong with that. In fact, it's also something to be admired. But that would be another story. When someone can operate on his own and maximize whatever limited resources he might have, then that is really something admirable. Some are impaired when they are not part of a group.
