Over the decades, the Vancouver dance company, known for its ground breaking mix of Japanese butoh and Western contemporary dance, has premiered over 190 works and produced more than 1000 performances.

Choreographed by Kokoro Dance Co-Directors & award-winning dance artists Barbara Bourget and Jay Hirabayashi, the company’s latest full-length butoh work, which has been 20 years in the making, is set to the heartrending but uplifting music of acclaimed Polish composer Zbigniew Preisner.

The duo have never strayed from their mandate to re-define the meaning of Canadian culture through teaching, producing, and performing new dance theatre with an emphasis on multi-disciplinary collaboration and cross-cultural exploration.

In Embryotrophic Cavatina, four dancers will strip themselves bare – literally and figuratively – in breathless motion and stillness, embodying the rawness of humanity, while transcending all superficial layers of persona and ego in true butoh style.
