In his new piece, Xavier Le Roy continues his inquiry into the boundaries of dance and choreography.

His performance simultaneously documents and enacts Le Roy’s approach to Butoh, a Japanese art form that emerged after WW II in the attempt to challenge the role of authority by subverting conventional notions of dance. The audience witness a form of story-telling and narration that draws on generic resources such as the internet, books, personal memories and anecdotes in order to come closer to understanding an alien form of culture.
