En Trance World Premier Presented by Malthouse Theatre August 28 – September 13

En Trance

CREATED AND PERFORMED BY YUMI UMIUMARE From her many performances of The Burlesque Hour around the globe, to Acclaimed Butoh Cabaret DasShoku Hora!!, Yumi Umiumare’s electrifying performance style is in demand the world over. In this bold work, premiered and had a sell out season at Malthouse theatre, Umiumare is set to detonate her extraordinary vision from the international to the other-worldy as she thrusts us into the twisted corridors of the un-living. At times brutally visceral, the performance is counterbalanced with the purity of digital painting produced live with her collaborating artists, Bambang Nurcahyadi and Naomi Ota.

EnTrance extends even further Umiumare’s diverse dance vocabulary, plummeting into the cracks where the spirit and the body are propelled into another existence. Umiumare takes us from unsettling moments of physical extremity to magical images of reflective serenity
