for a previous production "Assumes the framework of Butoh and adds Western dance and mime to an evolving journey...Unexpectedly the movement quality shifts. Sharp, quick movement replaces the slow control...It is the play with the sound that seems to take over. Other vocalizations by the performers distract...'Shinka' is a journey undertaken by committed performers...A solid belief directs the action. though greater strength could be found by letting the movement speak for itself."

See it if You love movement pieces esp butoh, beautiful physical storytelling, life and discovery and nature and spiritually. I thought it was divine

Don't see it if You don't like dance, movement, butoh. Physical storytelling without words.
