Unbearable Darkness is part of this year's Liveworks Festival of Experimental Art presented by Performance Space, showcasing local and international artists pushing the frontiers of art and performance. The show, conceptualised and directed by Choy Ka Fai, conjures Butoh master and choreographer Tatsumi Hijikata from beyond the grave through a spirit medium, live dance, motion capture and a digital avatar. Time Out is giving away three double passes to see this cybernetic work.
Butoh is a form of dance theatre from Japan, founded by Tatsumi Hijikata. Unbearable Darkness explores the legacy of Butoh and questions its appropriation in Western culture while searching for a new choreographic language for the Asian body. Touted by Liveworks as a paranormal performance, the performance stirs up long-gone spirits and investigates the choreographic process of a ghost.
Enter now by Monday, October 14 for your chance to win one of three double passes to this cybernetic dance experiment.
