Seattle Butoh Festival Gearing up for Fabulous!!



SU-EN performing Friday Oct 26th
SOOT
In a space of incompleteness
She senses her way
Following the fragrance of powdery black
Softly licking a barely visible wound
Listening through fingertips
Skin ripped, healing with an itch
What remains when pain leaves?
When civilisation falls asleep?
Bodies shimmering
Embracing the world
