@ BAM Opera House (30 Lafayatte Ave)

On a stage dusted with sand, androgynous talc-covered bodies-with heads shaved and corsets clinched-trace graceful arcs through the grains, inscribing time. Sankai Juku, the incomparable Japanese dance troupe, returns to BAM for the first time in almost a decade. Typifying the Butoh tradition, which was born from the ashes of Hiroshima, Umusuna probes the ravages of history to recover our original bond with the four elements.
