“One of the most original and startling dance theater groups to be seen.” —The New York Times

Over the course of the past 35 years, the work of Ushio Amagatsu for his Tokyo-based, all-male company Sankai Juku has become known worldwide for its elegance, refinement, technical precision and emotional depth. Amagatsu’s contemporary Butoh creations are sublime visual spectacles and deeply moving theatrical experiences. As one of the premiere choreographers at work in the world today, the arrival of a piece by Ushio Amagatsu is a much-anticipated event in the North American dance landscape. Sankai Juku returns to Royce Hall with one of Amagatsu’s strongest works, Meguri: Teeming Sea, Tranquil Land. Set against an upstage relief of sea lily fossil images, this exquisite piece is a poetic meditation on the passage of time as symbolized by the circulation of water and the seasonal transformation of the earth.
