Aaron Rapljenovic hates it when people tell him that his stage costume looks like a short stack of Pringles. "It's the worst analogy to use," says the performance artist. At today's Street Beats show with Zoe and Hope Schultz, a bare-chested Rapljenovic will wear his multitiered skirt while performing butoh, a slow-motion dance that originated in Japan at the end of World War II. Buoyed by a fiberglass hoop underneath, the skirt flows "like a flower in the breeze" with every move Rapljenovic makes. "You can either fight it or join it," he says. "It can be very visually stimulating. A visual landscape manifests in front of [audiences'] eyes."
