Excerpts from press review
"Waguri's butoh goes beyond words""As a butoh dancer,
Waguri encounters himself through butoh"
<The Japan Times, 1996 March, Japan>
"His face is covered with white powder, accentuating
their unearthy appearance, evoking images of fear, desperation, eroticism
<The Jakarta Post, 1998 September, Indonesia>
"While watching the artist in the stage, audience could
imagine anything---from earthly images to the Space. Some recognized there
the history of the humankind, the others symbols and elements of the Earth:
for one moment he becomes a stone, after a while a tree, an insect, fire..."
<Klaipeda Times, 1999 June, Lithuania>

It has tight relationship with particular cultural background. That is what
Waguri's Butoh suggests, and why the presnter put his performance program
<The Central Daily Times, 1999 June, Korea>
