Emergence is a butoh dance-theatre piece that explores the final stages of the tumultuous journey toward maturity. The journey takes us into a new paradigm forever changed, where nothing will ever be the same again. The experience is of the inevitable struggle with metamorphosis whilst searching for the grace and beauty that comes with growing up.
Created and performed by Gabrielle New.
