Akira Kasai Dance Company
Butoh dance is a striking manifestation of contemporary dance, founded in the late fifties in Japan. Akira Kasai, known as the “angel of butoh,” belongs to one of the first generations formed by the initiators of this movement. The proposal of this presentation is based on the legend of a goddess who picks up impurities, vices, and shame in the world to purify them under light. Its musical axis is the Ninth Symphony of Beethoven.

Music: Kimmo Pohjonen, accordion and voice.
Kimmo Pohjonen is one of the most important figures in contemporary music, often called “the Jimi Hendrix of the accordion.” Through use of electronic applications, he transforms the accordion into a fierce musical machine. His solo performances have been described as a “shamanic experience.”
