For the fifth consecutive year, the ever new Clipa Theater presents Clipa Aduma, its cutting-edge performance art and visual theater festival that takes place over three weeks from February 2-22 in all three performance spaces at the theater.

From Japan come two extraordinary Butoh artists. Butoh is a continuously evolving Japanese theater/mime/dance form that first appeared in 1959 and has since spread worldwide. The first Butoh company to come here was Sankai Juko back in the 1970s.

Taketeru Kudo performs A Vessel of Ruin, a meditation on the struggle to recover from destruction. In Abstinent, Novoyushi Asay takes on the esthetic tradition of Senkai Juko, the pioneering Butoh company of which he was a member for many years.

Other visitors include Mestoslav, an object theater piece from Russia, Pieces of Paradise from Brazil, visual theater on that country’s violent history, The First Suburb and Timidity of Bones from Italy, both of which deal with the intricacies of the human body, and from Finland comes Speed Blindness- Motion Blindness, circus theater about elongated time by magician and visual theater artist Kalle Hakkarainen.

The local pieces, many multimedia and multidisciplinary, include Diamedia, a TV-human love story, Eggness, a physical theater comedy about three clerks and their egg boss. Gindaor, created and performed by Born to Dance winner Arthur Astman, about a half fantasy/half real creature and Traffica, about a couple that communicates via road-signs.
