Tadashi Endo, director of the Butoh-Center MAMU and the Butoh-Festivals MAMU in Göttingen - embodies in the truest sense of that word the wisdom of both, the Western and Oriental dance and theatre traditions. His repertory includes No theatre, Kabuki and Butoh, as well as the traditional forms of Occidental theatre, which he studied at the Max-Reinhardt-Seminar in Vienna. In this synthesis of worldwide traditions, Tadashi Endo transcends the boundaries of each, although Butoh's trancelike absorption into oneself continues to be visible as the starting point of his movement. In his extraordinary dances, Tadashi Endo succeeds to express the field of tension between Ying and Yang, the male and female and their ever lasting alteration. He uses the suggestive power of concentrated movement phrases to explore the closure of life's cycles. He opens up a space, a void which can be either calming or irritating, and in the experience of which the observer submerges him-/herself into a world beyond time and words: that is MA.
