Adam performed in the Moving
Bodies Festival, Italy

Attempts to defeat the conventions
in the first evening of the Moving Bodies Festival

Disorientation and alienation are the feelings transmitted by the performer through gestures that are often broken and feverish, suggesting a desire to get out of one's body that is literally perceived trapped in a conventional dimension and, precisely, "domesticated".
At the end of the performance,
Adam Koan removes his little dress to reveal a full lace petticoat: an attempt to escape, probably vain and, then, the irony becomes almost desperation.
As in the works that had preceded it in the evening, a will to break coercive models of behavior and to explore new possibilities of being.(Google Translate)

Disorientamento e alienazione sono i sentimenti trasmessi dal performer per mezzo di gesti spesso scomposti e febbrili, a suggerire un desiderio di uscire dal proprio corpo che si avverte letteralmente intrappolato in una dimensione convenzionale e, appunto,  “addomesticata”.
Al termine della performance, Adam Koan si toglie l’abitino per rivelare una sottoveste tutta merletti: un tentativo di evasione, probabilmente vano e, allora, l’ironia diviene quasi disperazione.
Come nei lavori che l’avevano preceduto nella serata, una volontà di infrangere coercitivi modelli di comportamento e di esplorare nuove possibilità di essere.

Sinking into darkness of the body
6 July 2019

Sangeeta Forever!

Dearest Sangeeta,
Half a year after your death, I was finally able to dance you!
Until today, most of your memories, who spent the almost whole life in Subbody school, were stuck at each place in the school, and I was attacked by a sudden sadness, it was not able to dance at all. I have to wait for the time matured.
Your sister Shiv shot and edited this Butoh.
Thank you for enduring the deep pain.

What is to dance the dead

What does it mean to dance the dead?
In retrospect, I have been dancing the dead for the last 20 years.
In my first work, "Infectious Fever" (1998), my revolutionary friend, Hiroaki Yamazaki came out and dance it with using my body. In the second work "Dark Black Fever", Yamazaki and Kenji Hashimoto, and Toshiaki Tsuji in "The Nightmare Fever". They are all dead in the anti-war and anti-government struggles since 1967, they fought with me together and only them died, I couldn't die and have survived.
Twenty years ago, I continued to perform those Butoh dances around the world for three years.
Then, the deads and the survivors of each place resonated and gathered along with the Butoh performances. It was mysterious and lively days.
The deads of the Tibetan riots of 1959 in India 'Dharamsala and its surviving monks, the deads of the Hungarian Revolution in 1956 in Budapest, the deads of the Yugoslav war in Serbia, the deads of Auschwitz in Poland and Romania, the dead of 2nd World War at Strasbourg in France. Countless deads had come together and resonated with like as a dead's carnivals were happened around the Butoh dances. I transcended the boundaries of the dead and living and lived in resonance with their lives. Such things can only be experienced while dancing.
In recent years, I danced my friend Ramesh, who have supported me for 15 years and lost three years ago. And this year I finally danced his daughter Sangeeta who supported me as my assistant for these years and has passed away a half year ago by malaria.

What does it mean to dance the dead?

It is to become oneness.
The ambition impossible in the consensus reality of wanting to become oneness with the dead, it is only able to be realized in the Butoh of non-dual and multidimensional Life Resonance Qualia.
When dancing, not only the deaths but also countless deads appear due to the multi-layered resonance of qualia. The memories that I forgot have suddenly come back.
Oh, I notice an invisible resonance of how this was connected like that. I am amazed at the depth of the darkness of the body.
It is a dance to travel through a non-dual and multidimensional resonance world of Qualia that cannot be remembered as a rigid ego or self, closed daily human being.
It is able to understand only by real dancers. Because only the Butoh dancers exceed the limits of human consciousness divided into each channel, and can live with the non-dual and multidimensional resonance of the Life Resonance Qualia connected in the subconscious and collective unconsciousness.
To dance Butoh means to live in the non-dual and multi-dimensional and multi-layered Life Resonance Qualia realm. Butoh dancer has to become a specialist of Qualia as the Life Resonance. Because there are no other people who live in the non-dual Qualia world for 24-hours.

Stop daily thinking and daily talking at all.
Sway between Qualia dreaming and Qualia thinking for 24-hours.
Reach to the infinite silence in each moment, and we can listen to so subtle Qualia for 24-hour.
To become Butoh dancer means to build this inner maxim strictly and become Life itself.
Life is Rhizome which is able to connect freely and separate flexible.
Communicate in this resonance way of Life instead of talking with using daily human language.
To become Life and to become Rhizome is oneness.
Let's open a novel future which all Life is able to open infinite creativity.

Since I have been dancing the dead for 20 years, and I finally realized what is happening.
It is unexpected happiness to be able to share this awareness with you.
