Avant-garde Butoh dance
ZA / Butoh dancing group
I am member of the avant-garde dance formation ZA / Facebook public page.
Group was formed in the autumn of 2016 and had main performing activity in 2017.
the Odessa International Theater Festival OITF
"Into The Roots" in 2017 we created exactly one
hour performance. I mixed the track Monatik
"Krujit" (very popular at that period mainstream
pop song) to contentiously sounded version and
then our very slow performance "TO MA TO"
took place in the disco light flashing.
With ZA we have create two performance-show projects in PostPlayTheatre, Kyiv: "Eclipse" (spring 17) and "Darkness" (winter 17) .
our second show "Eclipse" we dissociated ourselves from the
audience with translucent coat:
"Darkness" show is an investigation of all the dark. We have black make-up (opposed to classical Butoh white makeup)
in Kyiv, UA
I have danced with and without ZA for the training and for the interesting result's aim in a variety of public urban spaces, particularly at Trukhaniv island and Bald Mountain. Video from one of the rehearsal
Also I have created a solo Butoh performance on
my birthday public event in 2016 in the Museum of Dreams
workshops in Odesa, UA
In 2017 I
participated in the show choreographed
by Adam Cohen / shadowbody (USA) in
the Invog gallery.
We started slow walking on the street, and gradually came to the gallery where performed dying and then resurrecting.
In 2016 I participated in a show choreographed by Haru Hee (Japan) in the Museum of Modern Art.

performance consisted of born awakening, "lived my life"
walking to the main room, and then group dying in the next

In 2016 I took part in a large-scale concert and show near the Olympic Stadium, Kiev. Perfomance made by Flavia Ghisalberti (Switzerland) and Valentin Tszin (Russia / Germany) for the Ukho concert agency.
To participate in this show I have to pass many complex rehearsals in any weather. But it was worth it.
