DEMONOID // video / 2001

An experimental video based on the performance of butoh dancer Paul Ibey, with music of Techno Animal.

Butoh is a contemporary dance in which disintegration of the body is an archetype of the body image.
"Legs are not for standing up, they are not instruments, or even organs of the whole functioning body, they are 'beings' which he cannot control but only feel as being there."

The video was produced at GISAM during International Contemporary Dance Days, Middle East Technical University.
