“One of the most original and startling dance theater groups to be seen.” The New York Times

“The singular glory of Sankai Juku is that it achieves almost pure metaphor.” Time

With its sublime visual spectacles and deeply moving theatrical experiences, Tokyo’s all-male Butoh company Sankai Juku is known the world over for its elegance, refinement, technical precision and emotional depth. Over the past 40 years, Artistic Director Ushio Amagatsu has become one of today’s leading choreographers. Sankai Juku will perform the U.S. premiere of one of Amagatsu’s strongest works, Meguri: Teeming Sea, Tranquil Land. Set against a relief of sea lily fossils, this exquisite performance is a poetic meditation on the passage of time, symbolized by the circulation of water and the seasonal transformation of the earth.
