Choreographed and directed by Akaji Maro, Japan-based butoh ensemble Dairakudakan performs Pseudo human Super human, an emotionally charged meditation on the dissonance between the fruitless pursuit of technology and the resulting crushing absence of humanity. Showcasing the stunning iron and glass stage installations of dynamic sculptor KUMA/Katsuyuki Shinohara, set to a frenetically energetic score of techno music by Keisuke Doi and Jeff Mills, the butoh masters commence a futuristic odyssey, advancing forward to a world where artificial intelligence threatens to consume our very existence.
