Ame to Ame: YBCA 2004

By April 26, 2014 FEATURED, PROJECT, VIDEO No Comments

(Isadora Duncan Dance Committee, SF 2005)

“‘Romance’ isn’t a word usually associated with the Japanese dance form butoh, but inkBoat’s “Ame to Ame (Candy and Rain),” which opened Friday at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts and repeats this weekend, manages to pull heartstrings while posing profoundly philosophical questions . . .
. . .the core of the work is the dance performances. The petite Kaseki, in her Carnaby Street Mod white minidress and knee socks, is like a wise child. Koga is an extraordinarily focused performer with a long face capable of resembling a gargoyle one moment and the visage in Edward Munch’s “The Scream” the next. The unfailing intensity of their connection only underlines the tragedy of their psychic individuality.”
