Kokoro Dance - Vancouver BC - presents the world premiere of WABI-SABI. Performances take place at 8pm, September 22-25, and September 29 - October 2, 2021, at the Roundhouse Performance Centre. 

“Kokoro Dance’s butoh expression gives recurring attention to the seven aesthetic principles of Zen philosophy: kanso — simplicity; fukinsei — asymmetry or irregularity; shibumi — beauty in the understated; shizen — naturalness without pretense; yugen — subtle grace; datsuzoku — freeness; and seijaku — tranquility. These terms are encompassed in a world view that the Japanese call wabi-sabi — the acceptance of transience and imperfection.”

Tickets from $25 - $30 (buy one $30 ticket and get one free on Wednesday nights). Tickets and info at: kokoro.ca or call 604-662-4966.
