Mujokan 2021 

Marie-Gabrielle Rotie was commissioned by Kew Gardens to create a promenade performance through the Temperate House, taking inspiration from the surrounding plants and from the enormous handing sculpture by internationally celebrated artist  Chiharu Shiota

Butoh-informed dancers and live artists, under the artistic direction of Marie-Gabrielle Rotie performed a series of vignettes.

They embodied the flower in its stages of blooming, fragrance and decay, to underscore the transience of all existence.


The work builds upon Rotie's current work investigating gardens, plant life and performance
