Three years after my short visit to Japan (where I learned to love cat bars), it has been nice to get again a taste of it at hohlzke, my friends place in Switzerland. They organised a great two day festival among japanese amenities and great artists performing in butoh, contemporary dance, calligraphy, experimental music and so on. The different artists (check the list below) performed either solo either in amazing improvised jam sessions. Enjoy the pictures!
