In the exhilarating Butoh-style dance performance, ground-breaking Japanese choreographer Akaji Maro and the brilliant Dairakudakan ensemble make their long-overdue Toronto debut. Covered in gold dust—like cyborg statues brought to life—they leap, sometimes literally, from the graceful to the outlandish.

The defiant Butoh dance style (meaning ‘dance of darkness’) emerged in post-World War II Japan, in response to the country’s overtly Western-inspired dance scene. Akaji Maro (who some might recognize from his cameo in Kill Bill: Volume 1) founded the Dairakudakan company in 1972. He has since become a legend of the form and joins the company on stage, marking an unmissable experience for Toronto audiences.
 

Dance legend Akaji Maro’s extravagant program paints the town gold.
