Trans-mute Butoh-Cabaret 9 to 29 May 2010

Devised by Yumi Umiumare and Melbourne University Students

Melbourne’s legendary Yumi Umiumare, leads student performers in the creation of a playful, transgressive and hyper-energized hybrid. Combining the physical extremes of butoh and the intimate inventiveness of cabaret, Trans-Mute will reframe everyday stories as strange outlandish songs and dances.
