“In this work, I am possessed by the spirits of Fire in a dance of internal transformation. Through the mask of Ankoku-butoh, I make visible, aspects of Afrikan spiritual possession present in the multimedias of Afrikan Theater. Fire has many forms. It is healing, cauterizing, destructive, holy, clarifying and also gives warmth. This is the third installment in the FIRE BUTOH Series. The traditional Nigerian dances performed are Swange, Atilogun, and Ekombi.”
