Node, a traffic hub where people from around the world come and go. The old man of the desert, our protagonist, collects the random information brought through here, enabling him to know everything about the world. With the ground vibrating and the throng of grotesque digitally-fertilized plants on the stage, it may be a desert, post catastrophe.

Created by a group of Butoh and contemporary dancers, a musician and a team of independent computer programmers, working under the direction of Takayuki Fujimoto from Dumb Type and choreographer Tsuyoshi Shirai, “The Old Man of the Desert” is an allegorical performance of the body and digital technology, reflecting the unprecedented reality we are facing today.
