This will be a collaboration between artist Takeshi Ishiguro, light, and the body. The art used will simply be two glowsticks that resemble fluorescent lights. All light and sound will be pre-programmed, commencing at the push of a button. Within those restrictions, can the natural body be free? This is where the will of the body comes into play. In the midst of everyday surroundings, within a space of restricted light and sound, a single dancer will awaken with lively motion.
