Butoh in the morning, butoh in the evening, butoh at supper time. . . . That's the plan for "the hours of the season," an unusual new collaboration between Japanese neo-Expressionist dancer Oguri and percussion master Adam Rudolph. The duo made The Times' best-of-the-year list in 1999, and their latest project finds them performing in three installments over a 14-hour period, presenting experimental, improvisational music and dance keyed to the dynamics of the day and the mood of the audience. Guest artist Joseph Jarman (a poet, jazz instrumentalist and Buddhist priest) must want to sleep late: He joins them for only the second and third parts of the event Saturday and Sunday. The Friday performance is a conventional, evening-only event.
