*Japanese Kabuki. Ever intrepid, ever indomitable.

Misc., thoughts

Lately I have been so inspired by imagery of Japanese Kabuki theatre! I find the bizarre characters in their peculiar gestures and even more peculiar makeup and attire simply beguiling. In short, what draws me to Kabuki is that it’s creations are grotesquely handsome and playfully allusive in a way that is incredibly attractive and unabashedly repugnant at the same time. A level of dynamism most compelling, if you ask me.


I love the manical quality of these performers acheived by the incessently repeating forms
