peek-A-Butoh, Melbourne Fringe 2017

Presented by: Melbourne Fringe and ArtPlay
Created by: Yumi Umiumare

Synopsis

Step inside the playful and imaginative world of Japanese Butoh. With a smiling shaman as your guide, you’ll jump headfirst into a world of transformation and shape-shifting, unleashing your inner animal, object, kook and spook. Everyday games like peekaboo and hide and seek are given new life and new meaning under the watchful eye and guiding hand of acclaimed Butoh master Yumi Umiumare, who has been creating her distinctive style of work for over 25 years. It’s a mini afternoon of kooky dance, discovery and play as only Fringe can be.

All children must be accompanied by an adult
