the style of dance is butoh inspired. Butoh is a japanese form of movement art originating after the bombings in hiroshima and nagasaki. it is an anti-dance. a dance unborn. unspeakable. undeniable. it exists inside the darkness of non-being, yet speaks to the infinite manifest being of all life. suffering, love and relation. the music was also written during WW2, inside of a concentration camp in france. the composer and 3 other musicians were prisoners in the camp, and created this music as the last music for all time.
