About the Performance

Hybrid Butoh Performance by Joan Lage / Kogut with live music from Christoph Punzmann 

“Emotions were clearly running high as Joan Laage, who also goes by the name of Kogut Butoh, another polished butoh dancing veteran of multiple decades, opened Saturday night’s show with a brilliant solo performance, elegantly woven into the fabric of this evening’s loss, yet still transcending its sadness to deliver a whimsical tribute to the woman’s body and menstrual cycle in Rivers Running Red.” 

- Erez Kats, Quixotic Entertainment (Rivers Running Red, Seattle Butoh Festival 2021)
