Delicateness in Times of Brutality is a performance by Japanese butoh dancer DAKEI and American movement artist Wendy Jehlen. This piece was inspired by a performance protest of the same title (Delicadeza em Tempos da Brutalidade) that took place in Sao Paulo, Brazil in May 2015, in response to the bureaucratic coup that resulted in the dismantling of human rights and arts and cultural institutions in the country. Delicateness in Times of Brutality is a study in opposites: solitude and togetherness, silence and sound, the eternal and the ephemeral, delicateness in response to brutality.

This event will also feature the following artists:
Morio - guitar
Yoshiko Honda - vocals
Nobunaga Ken - percussion

This performance is supported through the Performing Arts Japan (PAJ) program.
