Inspired by the dance of her ancestors, West Encounters East artist Catarina Gushiken invited the dancer Satoru Saito to be the muse of “A Poética da Tradição”, performed during the 2nd Design Weekend , in São Paulo, Brazil.

“Shudun” is a classic solo Japanese dance that expresses intense sorrow with the merest tilt of the head and graceful sinking to the haunches, calling to mind the Japanese simplicity and the handsome stylization performed with irresistible warmth of the human body language.
