Yuko Kaseki

W!O!man MADe


Production Details / Press Releases

This is a man’s world, But it wouldn’t be nothing, nothing with/out…
in this man MADe world –
man made a car, a gun, a wall, a war,
and made money, to buy from other man,
vicious repetition of creating and destroying – a virtual game for adult boys.
How long will it be continued? Who is this man?
And what about the woman made world? How does it look like?
No one knows because woman had no chance to try,
or because man MADe it is his creation…

This dance performance is inspired from several female artists, who were staying truthful to their life, following the depth of inner wisdom. Through embodying the spirit of their art, experiencing their creative path of pain and cure, and searching into their secret creativity, the dance becomes a view of different perspectives that transgress the ready-MADe systems.

Yuko Kaseki seeks the vulnerability and the precariousness of one’s existence, aiming to find meaning in the moment of being together and in sharing tools for re-making a possible future.

Yuko Kaseki is director, choreographer, Butoh dancer, performance artist, improviser and teacher, based in Berlin. She teaches and performs in solo and ensemble pieces and improvisations through out 27 countries. These works are poetic and vivid images that incorporate the spirit of Butoh, improvisation and live art. Her performance aims to reflect the outsider’s existence. Various International collaborations include inkBoat (SF), Tableau Stations (SF), CAVE (NY), Poema Theatre (Moscow), Salad Theater (Seoul) and more. She is also a key collaborator with mixed ability artists including Theater Thikwa (Berlin).

Valerie Renay is Berlin based French-Caribbean performer, director, electronic pop chanteuse, musician, vocal coach, painter, DJ and half of Electro Art Pop Noir duo Noblesse Oblige. Empowering songs and dreamlike melodies coloured by delicate poetry, makes her music cross through darker boundaries, showing rougher edges while exploring captivatingly twisted electronic territories.
