“MA the space between, is the global connective tissue of butoh, allowing the permeable passage of images in butoh alchemy. Moving through ma,butoh-a awaken self=reflexive moments in themselves and their audiences. Ma is not merely a perceptual and spatial concept; it is also an expansive state of mind. The mind that has been freed from thought can dwell in-between, not looking back with regret or forwad in anticipation.” Sondra Fraleigh
