“I believe in deeply ordered chaos” – F. Bacon
“Let us create extraordinary words, on condition that they be put to the most ordinary use and that the entity they designate be made to exist in the same way as the most common object.” ― Gilles Deleuze, Dialogues
“Butoh brings the subconscious before our very experience allowing us to see it and hear it and smell it in creative action. Butoh does not profess. Butoh insists over and over let us get to the truth. We begin to
contemplate Butoh from this point.” (Quote from Kazuo Ohno)
Butoh Bacon Deleuze is a research project, an exploration, a study aiming at producing work on this interconnection.
It is collaborative and participatory in its nature: Dance Ireland, Prof. Gerry Kearns, Michela Orlandi, Petra Shnabel, Conleth White, Agata Narcisi and the creative processual participatory platform on “Bacon and Butoh and Deleuze and you” this blog will hosts.
It encompasses practice and theoretical engagement.
Deleuze deepely engaged with Bacon, Butoh Dancers like Hijikata the founder, have created worked by him inspired and Bacon himself, offers endless possibilities. And I am the enjoyer of their experiences.
Butoh Bacon Deleuze is alive thanks to the residency currently taking place at Dance House Dance Ireland that lasts for the month of April 2014.
Thanking you deeply,
