「The Microscopic Journey」
Join us for an immersive improvisation session of butoh (Japanese dance theater) with  hotchiku(base shakuhachi)and awesome Fukuoka-based artists.
Roomin’(founder of OddRooming) describes butoh as “not only a physical action, but also a living one by itself. I have been aiming to create my butoh-being, which can be formed only ‘here’ and ‘now.’”
MICROSCOPIC JOURNEY has finally arrived! It is the tiniest journey through the world!
Don’t miss the chance to experience ‘here’ and ‘now’.

Master Wotazumi
■Hotchiku ■Improvisation ■Homily
Born in Hiroshima City, is a Japanese shakuhachi musician. He has been living in both New York City and Hiroshima City. He plays an un-lacquered, un-jointed, bamboo flute to help express his music directly and transcend any separation between performer and instrument in the tradition of Watazumido, and has been inspired by the playing of John Coltrane and Eric Dolphy, Taj Mahal Travelers and Musica Elettronica Viva. He debuted with a work by John Cage at the Museum of Contemporary Art Tokyo. He had participated in the Annual Opus Medium Recital at the Tokyo Opera City Hall, and currently participates in Karl Berger`s Improvisers Orchestra. Kawaguchi is a member of Seiji Nagai Group, and OddRooming.
