About MO theatre and Butoh-dance
MO theatre creates and performs unique works that draw one’s inspiration from nature, myths, dreams and moment of now. Osku Leinonen and Masha Salangina established MO theatre in 2009. Our affection to Butoh dance, Visual Arts, Video Art, and Qigong, and passion toward humane, creative and positive life, illuminates our art and our existence. Masha and Osku lives in Tampere, Finland.
“Butoh is a unique and versatile form of art. Butoh, which we create and teach, is butoh dance as we understand, feel and live it; our aim is to contact the essence of the participants, to tap into his/her embryonic and latent source. As every human being is a singular creation, the copycat syndrome and the clone division must be avoided at all cost. Butoh helps in liberating the conformist person. For us, Butoh is about comprehensive human beauty, aesthetics that matures on ethics and humane way to understand love, energy, life and self. Butoh is also an interesting form of performing art, form of dance (without form), and creative, adaptable way to practice body, mind and spirit. Butoh is art of awareness, art of interaction, art of life.”
