Kazuo Ohno creator of Butoh dance performance

An original Japanese Performance Artist whose work is rich with Passion, Grandeur, Madness, Drama and a dose of macabre' horror. A grotesque caricature of a " hollywood glamour queen"?
Mr. Ohno was a vision...and a visionary.

Above: Miss Dunaway's legendary performance as Miss Crawford in "Mommie Dearest".

Above: Miss Swanson's brilliant portrait of ego, narcissism, glamour and madness in "Sunset Boulevard".

Above: the hyper stylized makeup of Garbo and Dietrich set the old Hollywood standard.
Artist Louise Nevelson never surrendered her theatrical makeup as she aged.

Galliano's theater of grotesque "beauties" pushed the limits of runway fantasy at Dior.

The irreplaceable Genius of Bette Davis
