Butoh Master Yumiko Yoshioka presents "100 Light Years of Solitude", the second part of her trilogy "100 Flowers". The work is inspired by Garcia Marquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude" and explores a state of solitude through Butoh. Yumiko Yoshioka is a Japanese Butoh dancer and choreographer from Tokyo. She is a former member of Ariadone, the first female Butoh company, which was founded by Ko Murobushi and Carlotta Ikeda in 1974.

In "100 Light Years of Solitude", Yumiko dances the life of a unique creature, born on a planet 100 light years away from ours. Imagining that this creature is the only one of its species on that planet, it enjoys unfolding its life until it realizes its destiny... to exist in solitude.

Yumiko says, "In my childhood, I was always fascinated by the imaginary creatures and monsters of fairy tales. Butoh, a dance of metamorphosis, helps me to explore this imaginary world, and make something invisible visible."
