Namae ga Nai

Zan Yamashita


Namae ga Nai

Summit meeting! Zan Yamashita, renowned for his unique use of text, and Kim Itoh, a leading figure of Japanese contemporary dance.

Since the 1990s a new contemporary dance aesthetic has developed in Japan, the so-called “third generation of Butoh”.  Here choreographer Zan Yamashita and dancer Kim Itoh are more inspired by people’s daily lives than by aesthetic representations of transcendental life cycles and stories, while conserving an underlying political message. Known for his unique approach to text, Zan Yamashita directs Kim Itoh in a performance that exudes a strong physical presence.

Namae Ga Nai is in Japanese with English surtitles.
