When Butoh Meets Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s ‘Richard III’ is presented through the grotesque of Butoh in the shapes of two productions,  ‘Laments of the Dead” and ‘’Car Park and Six Incidents of Murder.”  Swee Keong says that Richard III presents himself first as a man of conscience, however, this voice of morality does not stop him from the mayhem he commits and the blood he spills to reach the throne and hold on to it. We find out if these productions defends evil merely by beautifying it.
