October 21 (Fri) 21:00 - 21:25
Roppongi Hills Arena
[Participation fee]
A solo performance by Yasutake Shimaji, a choreographer and dancer who is active as a dancer of Noism and the Forsythe Company, and has gained much attention for his enthusiastic work with rapper Tamaki Roy this year. This performance converts "something" emitted from the "location" and the movements created by communication with Shimaji the dancer into voice through the brain. It is an experimental attempt to create a collaboration with movement by looping the audio.
