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