Hortense Gerardo

Monday, April 25, 2016

Hortense will facilitate a discussion based on the origins and genealogical influences of Ankoku buto—the Dance of Darkness. The discussion will include but not be limited to a comparison of the works of its pioneers, Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, and their broad influence on choreographers ranging from Amagatsu Ushio of Sankai Juku, Maureen Fleming and Jiri Kyli├ín of Nederlands Dans Theater.
