A penetrating look at madness and soul transformation from one of Seattle’s most esteemed Butoh-inspired choreographers. Informed by the documentary The Library Of Dust with David Maisel’s photos of the Oregon State Mental Hospital and 3,500 copper canisters filled with the remains of the hospital’s residents, this existential work reaches through conflict toward serenity.
