Zeitgeist is a collection of raw and provocative Butoh inspired dance-theatre pieces that reflect “the spirit (Geist) of our times (Zeit)”. The aim in Zeitgeist is to explore how we as human beings are meeting ourselves, ourselves, each other, and the earth at this time of human history. The nine dancers weave together the big issues of our age- spiritual apathy, terrorism, global warming- with universal themes, archetypes and myth. It is an apocalyptic vision of our future, realised through the male storm of 21 Butoh bodies on stage.
N.B: Contains partial nudity in line with the Butoh aesthetic.
