Heralded as the “Nijinsky of butoh”, Japan's legendary Akira Kasai brings to Melbourne his tour-de-force work Pollen Revolution.

Akira Kasai’s own son performs this riveting solo, a surreal and startling journey through time, cultures, and states of being. Kasai’s striking onstage personae morph from kabuki performer to street dancer to solitary actor while his movement shifts between classical Japanese, hip-hop and the soulful otherworlds of butoh.

Beginning with what may seem like traditional Japanese dance, this daring solo performance sees costumes fly away, madness unleashed and representations of gender probed. Pollen Revolution is a masterly work from a choreographer who is still reshaping and reinventing butoh itself.

Part of the Dancehouse Japan Focus alongside Matou and Good Luck.
