My big dream is to develop a dance-theater company based in Indonesia, founded in a fusion of butoh technique and Indonesian tradition. The Japanese butoh company that inspires me beyond all others is Dairakudakan (The Great Camel Battleship!), founded by Akaji Maro. This company has thrived for over 30 years, touring the world with fantastic, disturbingly beautiful and absurdly surreal performances with intricate ensemble choreographies and a brilliant visual aesthetic. Dairakudakan is the model I want to study to learn how to create my own company, and I want to learn about every aspect of how they choreograph and train.
I ALREADY bought my plane ticket to Japan to join the DAIRAKUDAKAN SUMMER INTENSIVE in Hakuba, August 1-7 2015. But I need to raise enough funds to pay for the workshop and the rest of my travel expenses. Please donate now to the GoFundMe page!!!!
