Summer Storm

Natsu no arashi

Directed by Misao Arai
Japan, 2003
Avant-Garde, Documentary


Tatsumi Hijikata(creator of Ankoku Butoh-Dance of Darkness) in his final performance with his dancers in 1973 at Kyoto University. Three cameramen with small 8mm cameras filmed the entire performance, but the footage wasn’t put together until 2003. An amazing piece of dance history.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
