for a minute there i thought it was rolf harris and the wobble board lol! joking aside, i like this capture a lot ursa
thanks carol. they had rather unique rehearsing conditions. but since buthô draws a lot of inspiration from natural suroundings, i guess this was ok. anyway, the wobble board was a steel plate (heavy) and replaced by a mirror during the performance.
