Edinburgh Festival Review: Agaxart- Future Temple

This beautiful short film follows Butoh performer Emiko Agatsuma as she crawls like a little sprite of the afterlife clad in a white bodystocking and white wig, through bustling streets, eventually entangling in a billowing pile of plastic.

At once a dance and ritual, Agatsuma is a capricious figure, with human and animalistic characteristics. She is eerie, playful and ultimately, an imperious, goddess -like force of nature with a fist held aloft.

This film is disquieting, tackling climate change, consumerism and ghosts of the past stalking the present, with feminine energy and verve.
