In Japan, Yala Juchmann’s field of research moves between Butoh classes and the public space. She observes movements to gain new perspectives of the human body. With Body in Stages: liquid/solid she explores Tatsumi Hijikata’s method of Butoh-fu (notational system of Butoh) and interlinks it with her visual practice. Hijikata used words and images for the creation ofdance movements where each movement consists of several layers. Yala Juchmann’s installation creates an imaginary space by superimposing her observations of body, space and movement.
