Please read this amazing . For me, Thich Nhat Hanh is now one of our most important world leaders. He is like an artist in the way he has embodied his beliefs, and speaks so poetically and yet straight-forwardly about our future on the planet. He sees our inability to care for the earth as an indication of our spiritual broken-ness. I love how he seems to talk about the spiritual world and the earth as the same place. - Antony

Similar to its diasporas, the State of Israel wishes only to be a nation in the family of nations. Instead, it is rebuked time and again, especially by the entity representing the entire world: the United Nations. The below report by UN Watch demonstrates the inexplicably disproportionate negative attention given to Israel: “The U.N. General Assembly’s 2015 session is adopting 20 resolutions singling out Israel for criticism — and only 3 resolutions on the rest of the world combined. …The three that do not concern Israel are: one on Syria, a regime that has murdered more than 200,000 of its own people, one on Iran, and one on North Korea. Not a single UNGA resolution this year (70th session) is expected to be adopted on gross and systematic abuses committed by China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Yemen, Zimbabwe, or on dozens of other perpetrators of gross and systematic human rights violations.”

From 1960 onwards, Hijikata directed a host of solo performances featuring Ohno. The first, Divine, was a tribute to the dying transvestite prostitute from Jean Genet's subversive 1943 novel Our Lady of the Flowers. From the beginning, Ohno was yin to Hijikata's yang. While some butoh dancers later came to embody an almost impenetrable stoicism, and others grotesque horror, Ohno expressed something more ethereal, feminine and ecstatic in his reveries.

Ohno was born in Hakodate, Hokkaido; his father was a fisherman and his mother a musician. A gifted athlete, he attended Japan Athletic College, in Tokyo. His life changed in 1926 when, while still a student, he attended a performance by the Argentinian flamenco dancer Antonia Mercé, known as "the Queen of the Castanets". Soon after, he began to study with the modern-dance pioneers Baku Ishii and Takaya Eguchi.

Ohno shed all social constructs in pursuit of essence, believing that "form comes by itself" wherever there is spiritual presence. His revelations of love, pain and ghostly innocence were conveyed with the intuition of a great elder.

His first piece to gain international attention was Admiring La Argentina in 1977, directed by Hijikata, in which he paid a dreamlike homage to Mercé. The production won the Dance Critics' Circle award in Japan. Ohno frequently danced with his son Yoshito, and they performed together in works such as My Mother, Water Lilies and The Dead Sea.
