Yesterday’s test tone vol.6 at Super Deluxe was- again- a superb experimental event. Always finding interesting musicians to collaborate and cutting-edge performers, this time, CAL from Soundispatch did not only have music by Legofriendly and Soundworm, but also brought along a huge performance crew: the YAN-SHU Butoh Troupe with improvising musicians: Brett Larner (koto), Ezra Woolnough (clarinet), Dave McMahon (guitar, electronics), MORIO (guitar) and goboujin (laptop). An audio-visual-emotional treat, for those who like the surreal. The whole performance was entirely improvised and featured established dancers like Shinichi Momo Koga (US), Kim casino aussie Yong-Chul (Korea), Miki Sato (Japan) and Yan-Shu (Zulu Tsuruyama, Japan) himself. The big crew of dancers came from all sorts of countries such as Japan, Korea, Canada, US, Spain and Montenegro. I was touched by some improvisation skills and most of all blown away by Shinichi’s facial expression. Amazing! Yan- Shu and his friends have a big performance weekend coming up at Die Pratze in Kagurazaka from August 12. -15. If you are interested in Butoh or simply long for a little different inspiration – this is worth a visit!
