Bodies of Light ensue from Darkness
16mm film, Live performance, 20m

'Bodies of Light ensue from Darkness' is an expanded 16mm film and audiovisual performance inspired by the profound insights of Yoshito Ohno. The film is an interpretation of the morphic states of Butoh, born out of the chaotic post-war climate of Japan, radiating from monochromatic intensity to multihued abstraction. Howlround and Merkaba Macabre will perform a live soundtrack that resonates with the haunting soundscapes of early 1960s Butoh.

A film by Steven McInerney
Original soundtrack by Howlround & Merkaba Macabre
