Mystical Abyss is a compelling visceral kaleidoscope of intercultural fusion performance touching upon the hopelessness of global conflict, and our need as a species to be reborn.
Part dance, part theatre, part animation, Mystical Abyss is a powerful, visually striking response by director Yuriko Doi to the current state of the world. Infused with the potent elegance of the Noh theatre, the raw athleticism of modern dance, and the numinous energy of the flute and drum, Mystical Abyss interweaves the creation stories of ancient Japan and the Iroquois Nations. It questions the state of our Earth and proposes a never-ending pageant of life and death as magnificent as it is merciless.
