Dance Base Festival

Zen Baka


After a performance of daydream at Dance Base in Edinburgh,
Know The Score, curated by Charlotte Jarvis,
 I mentioned to the Artistic Director Morag Deyes
that I was travelling to Kyoto, Japan in the autumn of 2014
with a view to performing some of these pieces there.

They invited me to be part of the Dance Base Festival in August.

 Green Tea & Zen Baka
Ease into your Festival day in the garden with a refreshing cup of green tea
and a mesmerising zen-inspired performance
by minimalist performer David W W Johnstone.
This visual haiku draws on ideas from Japanese Butoh, 
the Zen Buddhist sages and John Cage...
with a gentle hint of mime and humour thrown in.
A quietly understated insight into the daydreaming mind
of a zen fool.
