October 27. would have been Kazuo Ohno's 104th birthday...

So, to celebrate this, tiny group of butoh-enthusiast organised a
"Butoh Flower Dance Flashmob in Honor of Kazuo Ohno" in facebook, so that in all corners of our round world people would go out to dance with flowers to the universe at the same time. We were not many but we did it.
Teatteri Olemus took part on this in Norway, in the tinyest village next to Hardangervidda, which is the biggest mountain plateau on Northern Europe. Allthough local folk art students didn't really know what was going on, they still joined dancing and playing and (en)joying. And that, I think, is the point of it. :)
