OnenessButoh and Rain Ensemble present the world premiere of UMI ("The Sea"). UMI is comprised of two programs: 1) Ode to Minamata and 2) Confluence. OnenessButoh performs Ode to Minamata, a Butoh dance production created in collaboration with Rain Ensemble, a Taiko drumming group. Paying homage to the resilient spirit of the Japanese residents of a small fishing village in Minamata, Japan, Ode to Minamata shines a spotlight on a catastrophic environmental disaster. Rain Ensemble premieres Confluence, a music concert featuring Taiko (Japanese drums), winds, percussion, gongs and bells. Inspired by the element of water, Rain offers an ephemeral twist to the powerful art of Taiko.

Presented by OnenessButoh
