IN RITUAL — Yuko Kominami

> Work in progress

The research project is to explore ritual aspect of dance. Ritual has been a connector to the world, the environment and community, that are always moving and changing. It can help the rebirth of a person or a community, promoting changes, releasing tension, affirm wisdom and knowledge. In many traditions, dance has been linked to rituals, and even nowadays in our contemporary city life, some theatre performances serve to move and change people, touch the core of human existence.

The research is a collaboration of two artists of different backgrounds – Joana Von Mayer Trindade from contemporary dance and Yuko Kominami from Butoh. At this meeting point, they explore different traditional rituals in the context of their functions, the processes, the performer-audience divisions in search of a new performance-ritual formula to rediscover connection, change and celebration.

> Artwork screening

This work has been created during a public performance of drawing from 09.01.2007 to 09.30.2007. It was an event during multidisciplinary project Dance palace within the framwork of Luxembourg – Capitale Européenne de la Culture 2007.

The numerous characters drawn by Klaus Maßem become entangled and acquire, with wood stains, a structure which tends towards figuration.

Spontaneous and direct, the process focuses on the identification of human figures. Like dance, the drawings incorporate a structure, through the figurative and linear representation of the many characters in various shades of gray painted with different brushes.
