One by one, the bodies fell down those three platforms to earth at the start of gosh, I am alive... Then Butoh gradually infested a stageful of people in the opening to Secrets of Mankind.

But what did you make of the two world premieres from Dai Rakuda Kan and Kochuten at Page Auditorium? How do you interpret the costumes? The makeup? The quality of their movement?

We were the first audience to see gosh, I am alive... and Secrets of Mankind. The questions: What stories do they tell us? What do they ultimately say?
