Rose Color Dance1965

  • 3.8
A document of Tatsumi Hijikata's Butoh dance with Kazuo Ohno as the guest dancer shot in Hijikata's early period when he was emerging as the originator of Butoh. All of the male dancers are dressed up with evening suits and move gracefully, yet an intruder breaks up the whole scene abruptly. The film is worth seeing, even if just to see a memorable gay duet of Hijikata and Ohno. Overexposed, washed out images are sandwiched among normal ones.

Like Butoh (sometimes described as "Japanese Modern Dance", this film will be of interest only to people who are really interested in the form and/or have a high tolerance for watching movement they can't immediately interpret for specific meanings. If you like non-linear modern dance or Butoh, though, it's very interesting archivally and historically.

An absolutely stunning film. At moments one has the feeling of watching through a peephole. The music is amazing. The film reminds me of another amazing film Decasia.
