WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

From the San Francisco/Berlin-based inkBoat and Berlin's cokaseki comes the twisted and romantic hybrid butoh­dance piece Ame to Ame (Candy and Rain). Shinichi Iova-Koga, the part-Japanese founder of inkBoat, and long­time collaborator Yuko Kaseki of cokaseki, a Berlin-based Japanese butoh artist, throw themselves into this duet directed and designed by cokaseki's Marc Ates. Winner of the 2005 "Best Ensemble Performance" award from the Isadora Duncan Dance Committee, Ame to Ame follows two powerful performers as they navigate their way through a sweet and philosophical love story, moving between suspension and manic struggle, from childlike play to sexual prowess.
