Ø presents WAR

Ø presents WAR TOUR 2013

war2

Ø is a group that formed in autumn 2012, composed of 2 movers and one instrumentalist. After a few months of working on a piece, Ø presents “WAR”, an original composition for noise music and Butoh.

Michiyasu Furutani (jap): Butoh, percussions
Yoshihiro Shimomura (jap): Butoh, percussions
Mangrove Kipling (fr): Modified guitar, percussions

Ø’s work focuses on a poetic and introspective approach to War, its images and torments, and the impact it has on individuals. War is a socially and humanly denaturing process which affects socio-structural interactions, degrading them to an extend when humans lose all sense of rational and civilized behavior, sometimes up to language deterioration due to state of shock, and therefore the loss of proper communication abilities.
The audience is invited to an internal contemplation and reflexion, as they watch the three performers unfold a both composed and improvised encounter of Noise and Butoh on stage, supported by images projection.

Ø presented “WAR” at ESDIP Berlin and it was simply amazing. It was a pleasure to have them here and be part of their tour.

This is what it happened on Sunday, 17th March:
