About 4RUDE 

The Theater-Butoh company 4RUDE was founded by Hikaru Inagawa and Maco in 2005 and has created and performed numerous productions worldwide and has given lots of workshops ever since. 4RUDE is searching for an ideal form of expression and finds alternative ways in theatre, which lead to unique theatrical performances without words. Based on elements from theatre and Butoh they create distinct pieces, constructed from a body movement language that finds its source in the personal experiences of the performers. They have been developing their way of working and their vision for years and continue to do so, exploring the way into the deep and by doing so creating a unique language in modern theatre. The epicentre of 4RUDE’s work is Berlin.
