Shortly to be seen at the F/T09 Autumn festival with their revival of Flowers flow, time congeals, this video from YouTube shows the dance company BATIK in all their animal glory. BATIK’s leader Ikuyo Kuroda will also be presenting another work she developed with a group of other actors and dancers (including men and one BATIK dancer) at the Tokyo Dance Triennale 2009. I covered this new production (and an overall of the whole festival) in an interview with Kuroda for The Japan Times, which you can read here.
