1. Butoh-Theater von 4RUDE

    (DE)
    „Ein Leben vernichten um viele Leben vor Verfall und Ruin zu retten. Würdest Du selbst die Alte töten? Ja oder Nein? “

    Der japanische Regisseur und Butoh-Künstler Hikaru Inagawa und die Butoh-Künstlerin Maco präsentieren mit ihrer Theater-Butoh-Gruppe 4RUDE die Weltpremiere ihrer Theater-Butoh-Performance „Schuld und Sühne", basierend auf dem berühmten Roman des russischen Autors Fjodor Dostojewski.

    4RUDE entwickelte 2005 eine gleichnamige Theater-Trilogie und führte diese in Tokio auf. 2016 - 2017 führten sie ein Theater-Butoh-Experiment in Form eines dreiteiligen Workshops in Berlin durch, das auf diesem Roman basiert. Nun wird 4RUDE eine völlige Neubearbeitung des Buches in Form eines Theater-Butoh-Stücks präsentieren.

    „Liebe deinen Nächsten! “
    „Liebe vor allen anderen Dich selbst. “
    „Würdest du selbst die Alte totschlagen, ja oder nein? “
    „Ich reise in ein fernes Land, Bruder. “
    „In ein fernes Land? “
    „Ja, nach Amerika. “

    (EN)
    “If killing one life could rescue thousands from decay and ruin, would you kill the old woman yourself or not?”

    Japanese director / Butoh artist Hikaru Inagawa, Butoh artist Maco, and their Theater-Butoh company 4RUDE will present a Theater-Butoh piece that is based on Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky's "Crime and Punishment", with world premiere in January 2018.

    4RUDE has developed and performed a trilogy piece based on the novel in Tokyo in 2005-2007, the trilogy was approached from theatrical side to the literature; later they held a 3-step workshop, followed by the Theater-Butoh experiment "Crime and Punishment" in Berlin in 2016-2017. They will now create a brand new show with a new adaptation of the revered novel, with the approach from Butoh side.

    "Love my neighbor!"
    "Love yourself before loving anyone else."
    "Are you going to kill the old woman yourself or aren't you?"
    "I'm off to foreign lands, brother."
    "Foreign lands?"
    "America."

  2. "The Legends of Tono"
    Butoh / Maco, Hikaru Inagawa
    2016 Berlin Germany

    Am 09. + 10. Juli jeweils 20.30 Uhr präsentiert die Kompanie 4RUDE - Maco und Hikaru Inagawa ihr Butoh Stück "Die Legenden von Tono“.
    In diesem japanischen Volksmärchen kreuzt die Welt der Yokai die der Menschen. (Yokai = Klasse überirdischer Monster in der japanischen Folklore) Kappa, Zashiki-warashi, Kamikakushi.... 

    Die Performance entwickelt ihre Anziehungskraft aus der poetischen Choreographie des "Butoh-fu". Butoh-fu wurde mündlich von Tatsumi Hijikata übertragen, dem Begründer des Butoh. Jedes Wort der Notation hat seine eigene choreografische Bedeutung für die Performer. Lassen Sie sich von den Butoh-fu-infundierten Körpern der Performer auf eine Reise in die immaterielle geheimnisvolle Zauberwelt der „Legenden von Tono“ entführen.

    On July 9th + 10th at 8:30 p.m. the company 4RUDE composed by Maco and Hikaru Inagawa presents the Butoh piece “The Legends of Tono”.
    In this Japanese folktale, the world of Yokai crosses that of the humans. (Yokai = class of supernatural monsters in Japanese folklore) Kappa, Zashiki-warashi, Kamikakushi....

    This piece is performed according to the poetic choreographic notation of “Butoh-fu”. Butoh-fu was transmitted orally by Tatsumi Hijikata, the founder of Butoh. Every word of this notation has its own choreographic meaning for the performer.
    Allow yourself to be enchanted by the Butoh-fu-infused bodies of the performers and experience the intangible mysterious world of “The legends of Tono.”

  4. CAPTURING A WHITE BIRD. THAT IS ALL THE SAME AS CAPTURING THE BLUE SKY | 4Rude

    Theater Butoh - Premiere ACKER STADT PALAST

    This work is based on the novel "The Woman in the Dunes" ("Die Frau in den Dünen") written by Japanese writer Kobo Abe.

    A man went to a village in a dune to collect insects and was held captive there. As the village was at the bottom of a sand pit, residents need to shovel off the sand almost all day long to maintain their living place safe. The man was held captive in the sand pit and was tasked with shoveling sand for houses and a woman there. He struggled to escape in many ways. He failed whenever he attempted but gradually he got used to living in the house in the sand pit. And he came to find hope in the Sisyphean task.
    A man who had taken a trip to be free was confined to the sand pit and came to live there, work to maintain there and live for the sand pit. Kobo Abe, the writer, said ironically that "every work was only sand shoveling and that people could find hope in the totally fruitless labour."
    The village in the dunes in here is a metaphor for another phase of a city. The author expressed the deserter's pain and pent-up emotions.
    Freedom of transfer. Freedom of not transfer. A round-trip ticket. Social restriction under the name of freedom.
    Utopia at the World's End.
    Belonging.
    Home.

    For example, the European Union - a kind of Utopia − is really the "Utopia" for immigrants?
    How can we analyse "The Woman in the Dunes" from the view points of both the EU and non-EU residents?
