BUTTERFLY BOY“Kochonomai” - the ancient Butterfly Dance.
The Butterfly Boy wakes up from the cocoon. With his wings spread out, the flowers on his head and hands fully blooms, the wind blows his hair upwards… he is about to take his first flight.
|Through time, the rarely seen beauty of the tribes and traditions of the world are disappearing. RERUNN is a mission to preserve the values of the ancient generations through to the future generations by reinterpreting their aesthetic, meanings, and stories.
In addition to the previous series inspired by the Surma tribe of Ethiopia, this year the ancient traditions of Japan are illustrated through ancient dances and walks of life. All characters wear delicate and flowing apparels with elegant movements. But more than just their appearance, they all share the same theme of “inner journey.” Each of them travels while carrying, blessing, and in search of peace and happiness.
